Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Snæfellsjökull National Park and Kirkjufell

West Iceland- Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Snæfellsjökull National Park and Kirkjufell: 

Highlight of our journey to the west Iceland was a visit to Snæfellsjökull National Park, a home to the Snæfellsjökull glacier, which is an active volcano and also a star player as the Center of the Earth in the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne.

Kirkjufell was another one of my favorite, one of the most picturesque free standing mountain I have seen, looks even more stunning from behind the kirkjufellsfoss waterfall!
