Mt Geirolfsgnupur is a challenge on a fine day. The view from up there is excellent. To get there, people have to ford the river and continue on sheep trails to cove Sigluvik. From there the trail to Cove Skjaldarbjarnarvik is used until it is time to start the ascend. Many hikers cross the pass Reykjarfjardarhals to reach Cove Tharalatursfiord and many continue from the to Cove Furufjordur, which is considered the gate to the beautiful Hornstrandir Area.
