Súlur is the town mountain of Akureyri.

Situated about 10km south-west from downtown Akureyri, it offers a stamina-charged 4,5km hike (one way) with a 800m elevation; with stunning views of the town and the fjörð when the weather allows. 
The hike starts from the parking lot at the end of the road "Súlurvegur", but you can hike from town all the way there. From the parking lot, you just follow the path marked with yellow poles south of the parking lot, well indicated all the way to the top. Give yourselves 4,5 hours to complete the hike with ample time (estimated time from the parking lot, add 2h from downtown Akureyri)
