Kirkjufell with Kirkjufellsfoss, Iceland

Kirkjufell, also known as “Church Mountain,” is famous for its unique shape. It is a beautifully shaped symmetric, free standing mountain on the northern coastlinef the Snaefell's Peninsula to the west of the Grundarfiord Bay. The creation of these mountains can be traced to the latest cold epoch of the ice age, when the glaciers and their rivers were seriously carving out the landscape.  The landscape of the northern part of the peninsula was gradually shaped during the last one million years. It is claimed to be the most photographed mountain in Iceland. It was one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones season 6 and 7, featuring as the "arrowhead mountain" that the Hound and the company north of the Wall see when capturing a wight..  🇮🇸🏞️
