Sandfell Skriddalur

Sandfell is an impressive looking rhyolite mountain in the shape of a ridge and reminds one of a tent because of its even slopes which are mostly free of cliffs and by it’s two darker peaks. The path starts by the main road (no 1). A little distance from the Gilsá river you will find the sign where you start. Walk the trail towards a fence then turn and walk up along it, then upwards by the trail on the northern ridge straight to the top which reaches 1157 m.
