Hólaskjól is located in Lambskarðshólar next to road F208 to Landmannalaugar. It is in an old lavafield from Eldgjá. It is a peaceful and quiet place with beautiful surroundings. There is just a five minute walk up the lavafield to an waterfall in Syðri-Ófæra that we call Huldufoss. The lavafield provides a good cover for Hólaskjól so there is almost never much wind there. There are excellent hiking trails in the area and up to Eldgjá.
