    Of the many peaks named Tröllakirkja ("Trolls' Church") this one best deserves the name! From the road it looks difficult but in fact it's a surprisingly easy scramble - you just have to pick a good line. There are a cou...

    Ljósufjöll is the name of a rhyolite formation in the middle of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. In the summer of 2006 a group of us did a very interesting hike from the closest access road on the South side, through the mount...

    With its symmetrical volcanic cone, Snæfellsjökull is arguably the most beautiful phenomenon visible from Reykjavik, 60 nautical miles across the bay. Still active, it is covered by an icecap - and was cast by Jules Vern...

    An enjoyable spring hike done in late May 2006. The weather was nice - though it snowed a little at one point. Great visibity over a vast landscape - highly recommended. Having hit both "peaks" - the one named after the ...

    Looking completely unscalable, Kirkjufell ("Church Mountain" - no doubt a reference to the mountain's cathedral-like shape) towers over the little fishing village of Grundarfjörður. Although it probably wouldn't pose muc...
