What’s that over there?
It’s 100 km (62 mi) from Reykjavík, but in the evening light, you can see it quite clearly. If you aren’t familiar with the sight, you can’t help but wonder, what is it? If you see somebody passing by, ask them and they’ll probably tell you. What you see is Snæfellsjökull.
Noteworthy due to the literary reference in Jules Verne’s famous “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, where at the summit one could find the entrance to a passage to the center of the earth. The “Jokul of Snæfels” a volcano and glacier combo which sits at the end of the Snæfellssnes peninsula. It’s 700000 years old, last erupted in 250 AD, and has a summit that stands at 1446 (4744 ft). You can stand there too.
