Maelifell, Reykjavik Reviews - Write a Review

  • Mount Mælifell is a wonderful place with a marvellous view all around it. the now inactive volcano is left standing by itself surrounded by sandy land and many small streams. I highly suggest a visit to this wonderful land mark which I believe would be the nicest place with the best view in all of Iceland.
