One of Iceland’s most dramatic mountain ranges, the Dyrfjöll mountains rise steeply to 1136 meters. They are located between the marshy Héraðssandur plains and Borgarfjörður Eystri. The name of the mountains can be translated to Door Mountains and is dues to the large and conspicuous notch of the highest peak. There are hiking trails crossing the range, which allow for day hikes or even longer routes from Borgarfjörður Eystri.
DID YOU KNOW: Dyrfjöll are often described as the counterpart of Lapporten in Sweden due to their similar shapes.
