Kirkjufell (Icelandic: [ˈcʰɪr̥cʏˌfɛtl̥], "Church Mountain") is a 463 m[1] high mountain on the north coast of Iceland's Snæfellsnes peninsula, near the town of Grundarfjörður. It is claimed to be the most photographed mountain in the country.[2] Kirkjufell was one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones season 6 and 7, featuring as the "arrowhead mountain" that the Hound and the company north of the Wall see when capturing a white walker.

Aurora Borealis activity on top of the Kirkjufell mountain, Iceland in September 2018. This shot was taken at about 12:30 AM on a night that experienced a lot of solar activity. There were many photographers even at the dead of the night taking long-exposure photographs with the Milky Way, the Northern Lights and the waterfalls along with the majestic mountain in the background.
