Kirkjufell

Grundarfjörður's beautiful landmark Kirkjufell, is said to be the most photographed mountain in Iceland. Its isolated position, 463 meters above sea level and jutting out into the sea makes it a focal point for travelers and locals alike.

Surrounded by beaches, Kirkjufell has a lovely walking trail around it as well as a more challenging and steep climb up to the top.  Two spots involving a rope climb make it dangerous to scale when wet or without local knowledge.
