The amazing mountain (actual place is called Kirkjulfellfoss in the town Kirkjulfell) made famous by the epic Game of Thrones series. Looks surreal when you imagine it was shot with the nearby lake frozen. Lovely nature about 2 hours drive from Reykjavik

We took a day out of our 7 day trip and drove out to this magical destination. Go if you can. It's much less crowded than the Golden Circle and just as magical. Really. And cheaper, too. You should go.

We were on our way to Kirkjufell and made a quick stop to take in the view of this majestic mountain. It was cloudy that day so the summit was covered in clouds but it didn't take away from the sweeping views around it.

This isn't like an american park. It's more "protected land". There's no gates or borders. It's like entering a state or city limits parts are curated but others are just land.
