Kirkjufell Mountain


If you searched for pictures of Iceland on the internet, you have found this iconic location. This is one of the easiest accessible locations in Iceland. The access is 24/7 all year long. The only think to have in mind, is the small parking lot at the main road. There is only a 200m walk from the parking lot to the main location where you can get the waterfall and the mountain in your frame.
