Helgafell is right outside Stykkisholmur on the road into town. Our b&b recommended it to us a place to visit, and our Lonely Planet guidebook explained how locals regard the mountain as sacred and follow a special wishing protocol when ascending it (including not uttering a word or looking back while walking to the summit!). We hiked up, and were treated to some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, the fjords, the bay, the islands, Stykkisholmur... Very easy hike up, and a nice easy activity in this quiet little town.
