Iceland map Hafursey

The Hafursey is a 582 metres high tuff mountain in the northern Mýrdalssandur. Fulmars frequently gather there and the slopes are dominated by vegetation. These slopes were the resting place of tourists travelling over the beaten track of Mýrdalssandur. A cave in the western side of the mountain previously served as a shelter and night quater of tourists.

The Hafursey has several summits of which the highest is known as Skálafjall (582 m). Other summits are known as Kistufell (525 m) and Kurl.
