Kirkjufell is the most photographed mountain in Iceland- and for good reason! The 463 m tall mountain towers amongst its ethereal landscape, and in the winter creates negative space against the picturesque dances of northern lights. Climbing this mountain is not an easy feat, but the life-changing scenery and effervescent views of mossy greens and endless sprawling land are once-in-a-lifetime.

You may have seen Kirkjufell on many Iceland post cards. Though not massive, it’s unique and prominent shape make it worth visiting during any season.

Producers of the wildly popular TV series Game of Thrones were big fans of Iceland as a shooting location. Touring these spots has become a popular activity for mega-fans of the show. The most famous locations are Kirkjufell on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula (the arrowhead mountain north of the wall), and Grjótagjá, the hot spring inside a cave where Jon Snow and Ygritte shared their secret tryst.
