They say this mountain is the most photographed in Iceland. I was lucky when I visited with quiet winds and nice reflections in the surrounding water! The view from the nearby waterfall of this mountain is the one you most see in photos but don't...More

After you travel through one of the cutest towns you will ever see along the coast you will come upon this spot. The most photographed mountain in Iceland. Known to GOT fans as the arrowhead mountain. Very limited parking. On the opposite side of road...More

Okay, so we went out of our way from the Ring Road to see this mountain partly because it's used in the filming of "Game of Thrones". We stayed in Grundarfjorour one night to be able to cover it. We were very glad we did....More

You have to visit this place, calm, cool and a view to die for. Small car park (20 cars) so be patient but well worth it

Just a quick stop to this place. It's main attraction is the mountain, but the the small waterfalls there also makes for a nice combination for pictures. It's out of the way but I was in the area so why not.

This area Snaefellsnes in general has some of the most beautiful topography in the world. You have volcanic regions, pastures of horses, mountains and fjord like imagery everywhere. Kirjufellsfoss is a gorgeous mini mountain that looks like the top of a sombrero on fountain side...More

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you must visit this place! The twin mini falls is amazing and just looking at this hat-shape mountain is surreal.

We rented a bnb in the town next to it so we had the luxury of time to just sit and look at it for a few hours. It was nothing short of amazing.

We didn't see anyone climbing. I read that you need to hire guides. There are plenty of other beautiful places to hike!

"If "the town" is Grundarfjörður, then absolutely!" This would be my answer too. We stayed at the Framnes Hotel, a short walking distance from the mountain. Hope my information was helpfull. David
