In 1880 [[Edinburgh]], Professor Sir Oliver Lindenbrook, a geologist at the [[University of Edinburgh]], is given a piece of [[volcanic rock]] by his admiring student, Alec McEwan. Finding the rock unusually heavy, Lindenbrook discovers a [[plumb bob]] inside bearing a cryptic inscription. Lindenbrook and Alec discover that it was left by a scientist named Arne Saknussemm, who, almost 300 years earlier, had found a passage to the center of the Earth by descending into the volcano [[Snæfellsjökull]], in western [[Iceland]]. After translating the message, Lindenbrook immediately sets off with Alec to follow in the Icelandic pioneer's footsteps.
In 1880 [[Edinburgh]], Professor Sir Oliver Lindenbrook, a geologist at the [[University of Edinburgh]], is given a piece of [[volcanic rock]] by his admiring student, Alec McEwan, who is in love with Lindenbrook's niece Jenny.

Lindenbrook and Alec discover that it was left by a scientist named Arne Saknussemm, who, almost 300 years earlier, had found a passage to the center of the Earth by descending into the volcano [[Snæfellsjökull]], in western [[Iceland]]. After translating the message, Lindenbrook immediately sets off with Alec to follow in the Icelandic pioneer's footsteps.


Professor Göteborg, upon receiving correspondence from Lindenbrook regarding the message, attempts to reach the Earth's center first. Lindenbrook and McEwan chase him to Iceland. There, Göteborg and his assistant kidnap and imprison them in a cellar. They are freed by local Hans Bjelke and his pet duck Gertrud. They later find Göteborg dead in his hotel room. Lindenbrook finds [[potassium cyanide]] crystals in Göteborg's [[goatee]] and concludes that he was murdered.

While the others are asleep, a hungry Saknussemm catches and eats Gertrud. When Hans finds out, he rushes at the count. Reeling back, Saknussemm inadvertently loosens a column of large stones and is buried beneath them, killing him. Right behind the collapse, the group comes upon the ruins of the sunken city of [[Atlantis]]. They also find the skeleton of Arne Saknussemm, whose right hand points toward a volcanic chimney. While a strong updraft suggests it leads directly to the surface, a huge rock partially blocks the way. Lindenbrook decides to blow up the obstruction with gunpowder left by Saknussemm, and they take shelter in a large sacrificial altar bowl. A [[Megalania|giant lizard]] attacks, but is buried under molten lava released by the explosion. The bowl floats toward the passage and is driven upward at great speed by a lava plume, finally reaching the surface and ejecting the explorers.

When they return to Edinburgh, they are hailed as heroes. Lindenbrook turns down the honors due to the loss of their documented evidence, but encourages the next generations to follow in their footsteps. Alec marries Lindenbrook's niece Jenny, and Lindenbrook and Carla kiss, a pledge of their coming wedding.
