When to Visit
The mountain is always busy with tourists so getting a clear photograph is tricky unless you get here for sunrise before everyone arrives. Alternatively, watching the sunset over the mountain is a must-do experience but make sure you wrap up warm for the dark walk back to the car.
Guided hikes to the top of Kirkjufell are available and offer fantastic views of the surrounding beaches and ocean. There’s also plenty of bird life that habitat the mountainside and birding tours are available for those interested.
