To the southwest of Akureyri, Súlur mountain is easily spotted from the decks of passing ships as it rises above the town to a height of 1,213 meters (3,980 feet). The mountain has twin summits, both made mainly of light rhyolite, a volcanic rock that was the result of eruptions some nine million years ago. Súlur is dwarfed by the even taller Kerling, a peak in the same range with a summit at 1,538 meters (5,046 feet).
