Snæfellsjökull is a glacier and the location where Jules Verne placed the entrance to the center of the Earth. For this reason, it is one of the most famous and popular places in Iceland.

It is also the only glacier in Iceland where you do not need any special equipment to traverse it. Additionally, the likelihood of returning from an expedition on your own is higher than 5%, unlike other Icelandic glaciers. However, this does not mean you should not be cautious, as moving across Snæfellsjökull still involves risks.

You can find Snæfellsjökull in the western part of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. For trips to the glacier, you can leave your car here (GPS: 64.824359, -23.717012).

Snæfellsjökull stands at 1,446 meters high and is visible from Reykjavík and the Reykjanes Peninsula on clear days.
