Baula, (934 m) a rhyolite mountain, most likely a lava bulge from the ice age. The mountain is cone–shaped and steep, with screes and boulders on all sides. There are no particular obstacles for climbers but care should be taken because of falling rocks. On the top there is a small rock shelter and the view from there is excellent in all directions. In a rock shelter is a guest book, there is also a cairn. To the west and north of Baula is Litla–Baula (“Little–Baula”) and Skildingafell. All of these mountains were formed over 3 million years ago. The river Dýrastaðaá runs from a lovely little valley, Sátudalur, through a deep canyon with many waterfalls, to join Norðurá between the farms Hóll and Hafþórsstaðir.
