Description

The haven of Mt.

Grænafell by Reyðarfjörður has served as the prime location for local outdoor activities for a number of years.

At the top of the mountain, a beautiful lake awaits the visitor and a spectacular gorge carves the landscape beside the fell.

A paradise of fine bushes at the foot of the mount completes the icing on the cake.

The tiny forest is adorned by planted trees, brooklets and extensive rocks fragments from the cliff, reminiscent of dwellings from the land of fairy tales.

The area has been made easily accessible by marked hiking trails.
