Structure in the middle distance
Strútur behind the Viðgelmir cave
There is a transmitter and a weather station on the summit.
After about 2 km, on a saddle above Kalmannstunga, another track branches off from this in the north-east direction, which leads up to the mountain. The slope has existed since 1965, but should be used as little as possible for environmental reasons.
The mountain can be climbed via the piste, but there are also other ways of ascent.
If the weather conditions are right, you have a very nice view in all directions from the summit, especially of Húsafell, the Eiríksjökull and Langjökull glaciers , the Arnarvatnsheiði plateau and the Kaldidalur .
