  • It is 30 years we were not back in this part of the island. The mountain is always there, always as beautiful and majestic. The snow gives it a mystery and an attraction even stronger, the perspective from the laces of the road is superb. Really a beautiful drive especially in Ólafsvík senses / Stykisholmur

  • Fairly iconic mountain providing a fantastic backdrop to a very active aurora showing. Parking can be difficult as they don't really believe in lay-bys!  more »
  • It deserves the title of the most photographed mountain of Iceland, as it is that beautiful. Since it is located opposite to the main mountain chain, it stands alone against the background of the Atla...  more »
  • Incredible mountain. The shape is very unusual and impressive! We managed to hike at the top, but be aware that this is not for those suffering from vertigo. The mountain is VERY steep and don't be fooled by the shape, it looks small but it is actually 463m tall, so about a 3h hike. There are no easy path to follow, some tracks even lead to very treacherous terrain, where a misstep can lead to death pretty quickly, so be careful! At the top of the mountain there is a rope to help climb the last couple meters, but at this point you must trust your abilities. The climb up will reward you with an incredible view of the surroundings.
  • Gorgeous mountain, different from the rest and kind of iconic 😉
  • Stunning, oddly shaped mountain. Climbing to the top is a bit challenging but it is quite easy and scenic to walk around its base, starting from the road opposite the waterfall just out of grundarfjordur
  • A must see if you visit Iceland!
  • stunning scenery.
