The ever-so-beautiful Vestrahorn mountain in southeast Iceland is a sight to behold.

Nicknamed “Batman Mountain” for its dark and ominous appearance – it looks like the iconic Bat-signal from afar — the 1,490-foot tall scree mountain looks down at the flat black sand of Stokksnes Beach below.

Vestrahorn is composed of gabbro and granophyre rocks, which help give it the appearance of sharp spikes resembling bull horns.

The mountain is located on private property. So to access the photogenic landscape of the beach, you’ll need to make a small payment first.

The experience is worth every penny—especially if you get to see Vestrahorn mountain on a clear night under the Northern Lights.
