This is an easily accessed mountain just outside of Reykjavik. A good trail leads up to this popular hiking destination in summer. In winter ice ax and/or crampons are advised for the final ascent. Verfellshorn is the point along the ridge where many people stop. A metal box containing a register is located here. Beyond this point the mountain opens onto a broad plateau where one could presumably easily access Habunga, the 914m highpoint.
