One of the most fascinating orographic experiences in Iceland relates to the direction of approach. The bare, tree-less mountains quickly change their appearance, revealing entirely new profiles as you go by or around them. A good instance of this is the mountain Einhyrningur, found in the interior along the South Fjallabak route. Einhyrningur means “Unicorn” in Icelandic, and the reason for the name is seen in the second image below.
