I know, childish, not big nor clever, and certainly not the first time it's been said.

It's Þúfa ("tussock ") an art / tourist thing that I only ever saw from a distance. I'm not sure I knew how to get to it, or what it was.

Turns out Þúfa was created by Icelandic artist Ólöf Nordal and is an 8-meter, man-made, grass-grown mound, which can be walked up. The whole piece is on an artificial island.
Those who walk up to the top are able to enjoy one of the most impressive views of Reykjavik available. 
Damn 🫣
