Mount Fagradalsfjall belongs to the Krysuvik volcanic system of the Reykjanes Peninsula in southwest Iceland. Iceland has 32 volcanic systems considered active, the most active in all of Europe.

Located between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, Iceland frequently experiences earthquakes and has high volcanic activity as the two plates move in opposite directions.
