Lómfell was first ascended by Hrafna-Flóki Vilgerðarson in 860 from his encampment at Flókalundur, where he looked north into a fjord and named the entire island "Iceland" in disgust. While not all that prominent, it is of great historical significance because it is the spot where Iceland got its name.
