Kirkjufellmountain rises 463 meters above sea level and is the landmark of the small town of Grundarfjörður, my home town. 

Grundarfjörður and Kirkjufell

It is possible to climb Kirkjufell mountain and it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes or so to reach the top. The view from the top is quite spectacular. The hike towards the peak is not for those who suffer from vertigo because it is quite treacherous. But it is very rewarding once you get to the there.

The hike down is also about 1 hour and 30 minutes and you better mind where you step because one wrong move can lead to devastating consequences.
