Information about Ingólfsfjall

Ingólfsfjall, pictured from the road

Ingólfsfjall is a 551 metre (1807 feet) tall tuff mountain, named after the country’s first official settler, Ingólfur Arnarson, and is said to be his burial place.

It is located in south Iceland, just north of the town of Selfoss and east of the town Hveragerði. Both of these are popular tourist destinations due to their high levels of geothermal activity, allowing for hot springs and greenhouses, and their proximity to the sites of the Golden Circle and South Coast.

Ingólfsfjall has many hiking routes, allowing you to see some of these features from above.
