“Amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

You pay 5 euros to drive up the mountain and there are several places to park and walk if you wish. The mountain is dotted with unfair nation boards which we found useful and the views are truly amazing - from memory I think they said 40kms. The ticket office at the bottom sells teas and coffees.

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

My grandmother grew up on this island and so I'd been before but this was my first trip to the Geokaun. It was absolutely gorgeous! We had a beautiful sunny day and you could see all around for miles. I definitely recommend it! It was 5 euro per car and there were 4 of us in the car so not expensive at all.

“Well worth the 5 Euro fee. Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Absolutely beautiful scenery from all angles. You can see for miles on a clear sunny day which we lucky to have. The walk to the cliffs is not bad. If I can walk it, almost anyone can. Go slow and enjoy the sheep in the roads who will pose for pictures. They are so used to people that they won't even move so you can get some great shots. Go to all of the different viewing areas and take your time walking around and enjoying this beautiful location. Imagine how it was hundreds of years ago. Excellent experience.

“Tough walk but worth it for the views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

A steep uphill climb to the top but it's enjoyable and if you aren't fit for it you can also drive. Once you get up you can walk all around the summit with stunning views in all directions and there are some information boards that are actually quite informative. The only thing is the car parking costs which I can understand the islanders wanting to make money but it still seems rather cheeky.
