The little house on the mountain pass called Fagridalur between Reyðarfjörður and Egilsstaðir, you will find this little small orange house, which offers a nice stop for a photo. The house is there because back in the days when people were crossing the pass they could stop there if the weather became bad. Nowadays they try closing the path before bad weather. Still always good to be aware of the danger that the weather can cause when crossing mountain roads in Iceland. These houses we call neyðarskýli in Iceland or emergency shelters.
