“The giant stands iron staff in hand by Lómagnúpur mountain. He calls to me and calls to you In a deep and sombre voice.” This is a verse from the poem Áfangar by the 20th-century Icelandic poet Jón Helgason. The giant is both a seer and wise. Iron staff in hand, he has stood watch here on Lómagnúpur mountain from the time of settlement and is the guardian spirit of the country´s south coast.
