An easy route with 2x 3km distance goes from Hvallág (66°22.4016°29.27) up along the cliff to Mígindishnúta, leaving only a short, though fairly strenuous, way to the peak. Although only 284 m high, it gives an expansive view, in good visibility even to Grímsey island. One can optional continue south down the mountain on. Easy terrain going all the way to Kópasker (6.5 km). With sheltered spots and holes through cliffs, the shoreline south of Hvalvík is beautiful, but care needs to be taken in some places to avoid being stranded by the tide.
