The Hólabyrða mountain is 1245 m high and about midway up there is the ledge called Gvendarskál. Hiking all the way to the top is quite challenging but on a beautiful day it's absolutely worth it.

It's still a bit early to go up there because normally there would still be a lot of snow on the trail but the winter has been easy on us here in Hólar. So, on this gorgeous day three of us decided to give it a go. We did have to cross some slopes of snow and in some places it did look a bit scary but...we made it to the top and down again.
