The beauty of Iceland’s Vestrahorn mountain

Vestrahorn mountain in south-east Iceland is one to behold.

Nicknamed “Batman Mountain” for its awe-inspiring beauty, the 1490 foot mountain looks down at the flat black sand of Stokksnes Beach below.

Known for its spiky peaks that resemble the horns on a bull, Vestrahorn is composed of both gabbro and granophyre rocks. But in order to access the photogenic landscape of the mountain beach, you’ll need to make a small payment to the landowner first.

By the looks of it, the experience is worth every penny.
