Snæfellsnes Peninsula

About 5.5 miles south of Hellissandur in the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Saxhóll Crater is one of the best examples of an extinct volcano. It rises about 100 feet high and affords great views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the dark lava fields of the peninsula. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
