Journey to the Center of the Earth

Journey to the Center of the Earth - Jules Verne I love this book not only for the fantasy world underground (most of the geology has proved incorrect and the 'lost world' was probably never meant to be) but also for the travelogue of 19th century Copenhagen and especially Rekjavik and the trek around the Icelandic coast in the early chapters. I rather made abstraction of the fact that Verne's narrator considers Iceland a bleak and barren place.
