Snaefellsjokull National Park

Visit Snaefellsjokull National Park

Introduction

Capped by glacial ice flows, the mighty strata volcano Snæfellsjökull towers over Snæfellsjökull National Park. The setting for Jules Verne's book, 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth', the sides of this volcano are streaked with solidified lava flows and basalt formations.

Located at the tip of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Snæfellsjökull National Park juts out into the North Atlantic, making it the perfect place to spot orca whales. Whale watching trips run from nearby fishing towns although it's even possible to see these remarkable creatures from the shore.

The stunning costal settings and the seabird colonies that litter this coastline have long inspired writers and artists, providing the backdrop for ancient sagas and legends. This folklore tells of the ancient magical properties of the landscape and the isolated beauty of this region still casts a powerful spell over contemporary visitors.
