About Kaldbakur

Mt Kaldbakur (998 m) is the highest mountain of the Westfjords in Iceland.  It is located between the bays Arnarfjordur and Dyrafjordur at the end of Valley Haukadalur.  It is flat on top and dotted with sharp rock.

The best climbing access is from valley Fossdalur and on a fine day the effort is rewarded by an excellet panoramic view over the Icelandic Alps and along the west coast of the country.  In the cairn on top is a guestbook for the mountain climbers.
