The Highlands

Grænadyngja

Grænadyngja is a steep hyaloclastite mountain west of the Sog-geosite. It has the same geolocical features as Trölladyngja mountain. It is a geothermal site with volcanic fissures. From the fissures there have been various lava flows towards the west of the peninsula, including Afstapahraun (aa type) close to Reykjanesbraut (road nr. 41) to the Keflavik International Airport.

Grænadyngja is popular for hiking. The best way to aproach the mountain is by car, exiting road nr. 41 on the crossroads towards Mt. Keilir and road nr. 420.

Mt. Grænadyngja is a geosite in Reykanes Unesco Global Geopark along with Mt. Trölladyngja.

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
