We meet at the central location of Kjarvalsstaðir art museum, then drive for 30 minutes in a well maintained Ford Escape, and hike up the beautiful mountain of Helgafell. The hike starts with a walk on a flat terrain, then after around 20 minutes the hike itself starts. It is not hard for a healthy person, and can even be done in sneakers, though proper shoes are recommended. The total time of the hike is around two hours return. The total time of the trip is around three hours with the drive. This mountain is an absolute favorite in the close proximity of Reykjavik. I can only describe the surrounding as somewhat space like.
We will meet in front of Kjarvalsstaðir art museum. The meeting place provides a great starting point, it is in the centre and traffic is easy from there.
