Möðrudalur is the highest settled farm in Iceland, 469 meters ( 1.539 feet) above sea-level. It has been inhabited since early settlement in Iceland. Möðrudalur has served as a presbitery for centuries. The builder of the church in Modrudalur was Jón A. Stefánsson (1880 – 1971). He was a great farmer and a multitask-artist and the altar piece is made by himself. His son was Stefan ,,Stórval” Jónsson ( 1908 – 1994), one of a kind character and a painter. The panorama view from the farm is interesting in many ways – judge for yourself.
Modrudalur/Fjalladyrd is a homebase of the company Volcano Heli that offers different kind of adventurous tours from above: www.volcanoheli.is
