Snæfellsnes is north of Reykjavik, in the mid-western part of Iceland . It’s most famous landmark is Snæfellsjökull. It is a large volcano but has a glacier at its peak; Jökull meaning glacier in Icelandic. It was made famous by Jules Verne in Journey to the Centre of the Earth, as the site where the heroes enter the Earth. It is, however, part of a beautiful national park in which you can drive amongst the lava flows that have now settled and softened into the landscape, having since been partly covered by the moss. This is often referred to as one of the most spectacular places to photograph in Iceland, however it was raining this particular day. That being said, it was still spectacular all the same, just with an added air of mystery!
