This is a holy mountain. It is said that people, who climb it without talking or looking back will have three wishes granted. The hike up to the summit is easy, since the hill is only 240 feet (73 m) high. From up there, one has a nice view. Helgafell is on the northern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, about 3 miles (5 km) south of Stykkishólmur.
