Möðrudalur is a farm settlement in Norður-Múlasýsla in Eastern Iceland, and the highest inhabited place in the country, at 469 m (1,539 ft) above sea level. Möðrudalur is a popular tourist destination, and was formerly located on The Ring Road until the road was moved to its current Háreksstaðaleið route to the north of Möðrudalur. It it in between Egilsstaðir and Reykjahlíð. You drive on the 1 till you see the exit 901 and 6 km later you get to Möðrudalur. It's very small but very pretty, traditional Icelandic. The church was built in 1949 by Jón A. Stefánsson. A guesthouse, a small store and a restaurant are operated in the area. I love how our agency marked all the places to visit on a large map. We would have never known about this place otherwise.
