Keilir

Keilir is that perfectly cone-shaped mountain resembling a volcano visible on the main road leading from the Keflavik Airport into Reykjavik. Created from sub-glacial eruptions during the Ice Age, this distinctive landmark represents a proud symbol of the Reykjanes Peninsula.

Although the sides appear quite steep, it is not too difficult to climb and the view from the summit is certainly worth the effort. On top of Mount Keilir is a concrete table with a directional map etched into a metal table to help further enjoy famous sites within the panoramic vista.
