Snæfellsjökull, the magnificent landmark of West Iceland and pride of  Snæfellnes, beckons the incoming tourist at Keflavík airport from a distance.  This powerful glacier has long been a source of interest and inspiration to many, and it is no coincidence that Jules Verne chose this mysterious area as a setting for his work, "Journey to the Centre of the Earth".

The West offers its visitors a natural environment that is pristine, wild and bountiful - beautiful mountain ranges, forested valleys, crystal clear waters brimming with salmon and trout.  The old lava fields provide a silent irregular terrain eerily resembling that of moonscape.  Caves, huge pillars of rock, beaches and marshes all have their place in West Iceland.
