Iceland is filled with interesting rock sculptures, lava formations, volcanoes and mountains of all shapes and sizes. In the Westfjords you can find high table-top mountains with narrow fjords in between but the mountains by the fjords in the east of the country are more rugged and harsh.
Iceland is situated right on top of two tectonic plates and is also on one of so-called hot spots on earth, with intense volcanic activity and frequent earthquakes happening.
Most Icelanders have their favorite mountain and some mountains are more known then others. The highest mountain in Iceland is Hvannadalshnjúkur on top of Vatnajökull glacier, in the southeast corner of the country.
This mountain has become known as the ‘Batman’ mountain among locals because the three towers are shaped like a bat. It is situated in the east of Iceland.
