Are you a member of FÍ Yes No

Ferðafélag Íslands (The Iceland Touring Association, FÍ) operates a small mountain hut under the Mt. Einifell close to lake Hagavatn.

The hut is a tiny one-room-hut with bunk beds on each side and a small table between them. A small open loft is located above half of the hut. Six to eight people can sleep in the bunk beds and four in the loft, but that's packing it really tight!

There is no real kitchen in the hut and it is heated with a wooden furnace. There is no running water in the area and only glacial water can be found in the hut's vicinity. A latrine/outhouse is located close by. There is a good camping ground under Einifell and also beside the hut.

Guests have to take their trash along with them and leave nothing behind at the lodge.

The hut was built in 1942 and is situated in a vegetated dell at the edge of glacier Langjökull and at the foot of the westernmost of the Mt. Jarlhettur.
