Þingvellir National Park

Þingvellir has the official UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its unique geology in which two tectonic plates meet, the North American plate and the Eurasian. Slowly pulling apart a few centimetres per year, the plates are the main reason for Iceland’s volcanoes and spectacular landscapes. For a truly surreal experience, diving between the plates in Silfra is possible.

We walked quite a ways through this park but the scenery was so beautiful you didn’t mind.
