The pair had been walking up the valley Hnífsdalur but reportedly got confused when night fell.

The women called the emergency services for assistance and were found near the mountain Kistufell at the bottom of Súgandafjörður.

They were found in a good condition, albeit cold, and were taken into town.

It has begun to snow in the mountains in the West Fjords.
