Þingvellir National Park
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir National Park, is one of the most significant place in Iceland in terms of nature and history. It is the birthplace of the Icelandic Viking age Parliament Alþingi (930 AD), where laws were made and medieval justice was carried out.
Þingvellir is home to lake Þingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake, and is the place where the tectonic plates of America and Eurasia meet and drift apart.
Gullfoss waterfall is one of the most popular natural attractions of the Golden Circle trip. Standing next to the double cascade waterfall as it thunders down into the narrow Hvítárgljufur canyon is an unforgettable experience.
Geysir Hot Spring Area
At Geysir geothermal area, one of the highlights is the hot spring Strokkur which erupts with scalding water every 5 minutes.
