The dormant volcano Snęfellsjökull is a prominent feature of the Reykjavik skyline in clear weather. Its near perfect circular cone rises to 1448 metres and is covered permanently by an icecap. It lies at the western extremity of the peninsula Snęfellsnes on the other side of Faxafloi bay and around 100 kilometres from Reykjavik. The area around it is rich in natural features of great interest and was recently declared a National Park. The mountain also represents a cultural link between Iceland and France. The travellers of Jules Verne's Voyage to the Centre of the Earth entered the subterranean realm through its crater. Nowadays the associations of the mountain with mystic powers attract "travellers" of a different kind.
