Kerlingarfjöll are one of the natural pearls of Iceland, located in the highlands, between the Glaciers Hofsjökull and Langjökull in the center of Iceland.
The name Kerlingarfjöll means ‘Old Woman’s Mountain’, a name inspired by ancient folk tales. It is said that an old troll lady was caught out by the sunrise and therefore turned to stone. You can still see her silhouette carved in the 25 m high tuff stone pillar at Kerlingartindur peak.
Kerlingarfjöll is a 1,477 m (4,846 ft)) tall mountain range in Iceland situated in the Highlands of Iceland. They are part of a large tuya volcano system of 100 km2 (39 sq mi) which was active some 70.000 – 300.000 years ago.. The volcanic origin of these mountains is evidenced by the numerous hot springs and rivulets in the area, as well as red volcanic rhyolite stone the mountains are composed of. Minerals that have emerged from the hot springs also color the ground yellow, red and green making the area extremely colorful and heaven for photographers.
