  • One of the most beautiful mountain in Iceand. Will be your most popular journey in iceland, Snæfellsnes pensula is one of my favorite. I take my guest here all the time. 
  • Such a cool place. Try and go in the early morning or later in the evening to avoid the busloads of tourists. It's so peaceful and beautiful. Would definitely want to go back again. 
  • Only if you have really lots of time to spare - one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland - guess the expectations were too high. Still, we enjoyed the drive to Kirkjufell - hence the quote. 
  • 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.
