Added by Lauren Schusterman

Challenging hike right outside of Akureyri giving great views of the surrounding mountains and fjord. 

From the parking lot the trail will almost immediately fork and you will want to go left.  There will be a small sign for Sulur.  There is a small stream crossing before you continue the gradual climb up hill.  The first few kilometers of the hike will move through a significant of marsh land which can be difficult to hike through especially after it rains (where the waterproof shoes come in handy).  The last part of the hike continues steeply up a rocky slope.  The trail moves around the peak and then up from the other side.  Even in summer there may be snow along this part of the hike.  Be careful on these areas as the snow may not be stable.  From here the trail moves up onto the ridge where you continue uphill. 

There are several false summits before you reach the real summit which is marked with a large pile of rocks and guest registry.
