About Maelifell, Reykjavik
Mount Mælifell, also called as Measure-Hill, is a volcano located in Southern Iceland. Mælifell stands 200 meters above its surroundings and it is a composite cone volcano formed by volcanic eruptions underneath the Myrdalsjökull glacier. Mælifell has surfaced ca 10,000 years ago as glaciers receded after the last ice age. Mount Mælifell is reachable only by a 4WD vehicle. It is on the southern Fjallabak road next to the glacier Mýrdalsjökull. The road is usually wet and sometimes completely flooded, making the volcano only accessible from July to the beginning of October.Wikipedia

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.
