Mt Dyrfjoll (The
Door Mountains) are the highest mountains (1136 m) on the Borgarfjordur
Bay. Their name is derived from a prominent mountain pass called The
Door at 856 m above sea level. Only trained mountaineers should
attempt climbing it. Very few people have stood on the highest peak.
According to the legends, the
royalty of the elves or the hidden people occupies those mountain
castles. Many of the younger generation believe that these mountains
are the home of the Santa Claus family in Iceland.
