Snæland, J: Huts and Lodges in Iceland
Englisch. Reykjavík, 2010. 198 S. Geb
This book illustrates in text and images upwards of 140 huts, old and new, that have been built throughout Iceland. The book contains a vast amount of information about the huts, their history and furnishings, in addition to mentioning their owners and supervisors. Description includes a photo of each hut, and their position is indicated by GPS quadrants and on a map. Approaches to the huts are clearly detailed and frequent mention is made of nearby natural gems. A separate chapter describes various classic and historical mountain huts, some that still serve wilderness travellers. This is a particularly useful handbook for all those who travel from summits to seashores, whether going on foot, by horseback or by automobile.
