There at the top you can enjoy nice views ever the Heimaey island and (if the weather allows) of the Icelandic mainland as well. You can find two quite famous rock formations, the Fish head and the Elephant head at its foot.

You can climb Blátindur quite easily (unlike i.e. Heimaklettur where you have to deal with ropes and steep ladders), so everybody in a good physical condition and with some kind of respect to nature can make it to the top.
