Súlur is very famous mountain in Akureyri, the rescue team in Akureyri is named after it, also clothes from the 66°N company.
Súlur is a mountain located to the south west of the town Akureyri in Iceland rising some 1213 meters. It is very popular for hiking tours, I have been there a few times and I have always met some people on my way, I think you are never alone on the mountain. The hike is about 5km and takes about 4-5 hours.
Beautyful view is from the top of Súlur,inviting to an astonishing view over the town and the fjord, you can see all over Eyjafjörður and its surroundings.
There is a guestbook on the top of Sulur that is recommended you sign :) I always sign it when I go there. I know that some people use Súlur to measure their fitness level... taking the time and doing their best.. and then go again after few weeks to beat the "old" time :)
