Lambafellsklofi is one of the “must see” places in Reykjanes. It is a ravine in Lambafell with vertical walls, it’s width being no more than 12 metres at it’s narrowest points. Hiking through this ravine is fairly easy but the last fifty yards do get a little steep. When exiting the ravine, one has reached the top of Lambafell with a magnificent view over the Reykjanes area. This is a perfect spot to enjoy a packed lunch and the surrounding landscape. Over here one can often feel the earth tremble slightly beneath one’s feet. Lambafellsklofi is approximately a thirty minute drive from Reykjavík, exiting Reykjanesbraut just south of Kúagerði by a road sign pointing to Keilir. Passing the parking spaces by Höskuldarvellir, the regular starting point when going for a hike up Keilir, and driving on for about 1 km to Eldborg, a low and reddish gravel mine hill. At Eldborg there is a clearly marked hiking path, some one hundred yards and leading north to Lambafell. When reaching the mountain one continues north along it’s west side, all the way to the mountain’s northern end. There, one can see the ravine that splits the mountain into two parts.
