275m high tuff mountain south of Mýrdalsjökull glacier
Pétursey is a 275 m high tuff mountain which rises dramatically from the plains that surround it, east of Sólheimasandur and south of Mýrdalsjökull Glacier. Pétursey was previously named „Tall Island“ which suggests that it may have once been surrounded by sea water. Eyjarhóll is a pillar-formed, grassy knoll that stands alone just south of Pétursey.
