Snæfellsjökull is a famous Icelandic glacier

Snæfellsjökull is an Icelandic glacier that covers the Snæfell volcano. Often this name is also given to the volcano to distinguish it from the other two reliefs that have the same name. It is located in the westernmost part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. Sometimes it can be seen from the city of Reykjavík, beyond the bay of Faxaflói, from a distance of 120 kilometers. The mountain is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Iceland, mainly due to the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by the French author Jules Verne, in which the protagonist finds the passage leading to the center of the Earth to Snæfellsjökull.
