Winter in Þingvellir

Thingvellir national park

We highly recommend driving to Thingvellir National Park, a site of historical, cultural and geological importance which has been nominated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The continental drift between North American and Eurasian tectonic plates can be clearly seen in the cracks or faults that traverse the region. Alþingi, Iceland’s legislative and judicial authority was established there in 930 AD. It is also the home of Þingvalla-vatn the largest natural lake in Iceland. Þingvellir is also the home to Silfra crack which is the most uniqe Iceland diving site were you can dive between two continents with incredible visibility.
