“Beautiful views”
Review of Helgafell

Reviewed 11 August 2017

Short but little steep hike up the mountain gives incredible views of the area. It took us about 15-20 minutes to get up the top. This attraction has a fee for $4 per person and has a small gift store and toilet close to the parking area.

Our local guide told us before walking up:
Think of three wishes - for someone else
Do not speak while walking up
Do not look back while walking up
Keep thinking of your wishes as you ascend
When you reach the top, whisper your wishes to the wind and your wishes [may] come true - HA! At least it'll keep the kids quiet.

(We all did it).

Beautiful view of the area

This place is a easy hike, a way to spend 30 minutes traveling between towns in the peninsula. You can express three wishes when you reach the top ( but you need to follow certain rules)! There is a small fee to pay (kids are allowed for free) in an office with an old man that does not speak English and also sells handmade wool caps.

We had read about Helgafell online so we were looking out for the turn on the road. It was a lot closer to Stykkisholmur than we expected - just minutes away. We had read the story about the place and wanted to check it out.
The climb up to the top was a bit more strenuous than we thought it would be. The 'mountain' looks very small but the path is a bit steep and quite rocky. Once you reach the peak, the views are awesome!
It's a fun stop on your road trip, and you can do it in 30 minutes or linger longer if you like.

Primarily a fishing village. There are a couple of small hotels and restaurants. You can get gas here which is incredibly crucial out on the peninsula! Fast stop when you're passing through
