Region: Highland
Coordinates: 63.7380219° N 18.9788853° W

Maelifell stands 200 meters above its surroundings and it is a composite cone volcano formed by volcanic eruptions underneath the Myrdalsj0kull glacier. Maelifell has surfaced ca 10,000 years ago as glaciers receded after the last ice age.

Apart from walkling, Mount Maelifell 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.
