Mountain Lómagnúpur with reflection in a small pond in front
Mountain Lómagnúpur (767 m) on Skeiðarársandur, south coast Iceland. Lómagnúpur is one of the most instantly recognisable of all Icelandic mountains, was once thought to be the home of a giant named Járngrímur. The giant of Lómagnúpur has earned himself a place on Iceland’s coat of arms, where he stands with the guardian spirits of the other three quarters of the country, holding his iron staff in his hand. The farm at the foot of Mt. Lómagnúpur is called Núpsstaður.
