Photographer's Note

axhll is an excellent sightseeing attraction for those who do not want to hike too far. The crater is approximately 100 m (100 ft) high with a useful walking path and steps in order to make the ascent as easy as possible for guests. This makes for a simple alternative to visiting Eldborg crater on the Sn詛ellsnes Peninsula which requires a two and a half hour hike to visit.

Saxhll is, in fact, two craters, though most guests will only summit the first due to its close proximity to the road, レtnesvegur (Nr. 574). From the top of the crater, one is blessed with incredible views over the Atlantic Ocean and the expansive, dried lava fields of the Sn詛ellsnes Peninsula. Saxhll is one of the best examples of seeing a crater in Iceland that once shot hot magma from the earth, sculpting the landscape around it.

With the snow and ice, the way was not so easy. One had to be very careful.
