The astonishing glacier towers over the Snæfellsnes National park at the tip of the peninsula. The glacier is known to be one of the world’s seven energy centers (chakras) and some believe it to be a meeting place for extraterrestrials.

Because of the strong energy field coming from the glacier you can’t escape to feel re-energized after your stay there. The amazing Snæfellsjökull volcano has not erupted in the last 1800 years. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula’s communities were the first among European communities
