Sandfell (N65°05.637-W14°30.298) // 5 hrs.

Sandfell is one of the 30 Pearls of Egilsstaðir region and refers to some of the most stunning hikes of the area. 

Sandfell is an impressive looking rhyolite mountain in the shape of a ridge and reminds one of a tent because of it’s even slopes which are mostly free of cliffs and by it’s two darker peaks.
The hike starts close to Stóra-Sandfell farm, where you will find a sign. 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.
