Búlandstindur

Búlandstindur is a 1069-meter-high basalt mountain in Djúpivogur district and is believed to be about 8 million years old. Búlandstindur is generally considered to be one of the most beautiful mountains in Iceland.

At a height of about 700 m east of Búlandstindur runs a mountain ridge, Goðaborg, and it is said that people went up there with their deities immediately after the conversion to Christianity in order to throw them out of the mountain cliff. Other sources say that Goðaborg is a cliff high up in Búlandstindur, said to be wide and flat. It is steep and hard to get up there. Some say that there is water nearby, that was used to wash the bowels of animals that were sacrificed to the gods.

Many people make their way to the summit every year. It is best to follow a road that runs along Búlandsá to the south and all the way to a dam that is in the heart of the valley. From there you walk straight up the grassy green slopes and landslides inside Stóruskriðugil in the direction of a pass inside Búlandstindur. After that, the route runs itself until the top peak is reached. You can view an aerial photo of a marked path up to the summit on Teigarhorn's website. The peak is a narrow and steep cliff and there is a great view. It is very important to be careful not to walk too far to the east if something is visually or if it is slippery, because the eastern slope of the mountain is steep and rocky. There is a good mobile connection on the summit.
