Magnificent and rugged mountain

Message from Aron Tómas
Vestrahorn is a badass mountain in southeast Iceland that stands out from the rest with its two distinctive peaks. It's all about that dark and jagged appearance, thanks to the iron- and magnesium-rich rocks it's made of. Located near the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the East Fjords, Vestrahorn offers stunning views of the sea and a black sandy coastline where seals like to hang out. It's a popular spot for photographers, especially when the Northern Lights dance above it in winter or the Midnight Sun shines on it in summer. Just keep in mind that there's a small fee to access this private land.
