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.
