Bláfjöll, a mountain range south of Vífilsfell, a skiing and outdoor–sports area a few km from the main road. Good skiing area, both Alpine and cross–country in Bláfjöll and Heiðin há, especially in late winter and springtime. Skilifts, lodge etc.

The lava–fields west of Bláfjöll can be very dangerous, however, because of cracks, subsidence and open–roofed caves where the fall down to the rough floor may be as much as 10 m.
