ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir, South RegionHead first to Thingvellir National Park with your guide. It was here, in the year 930, that the Icelandic national parliament was founded. Known locally as Althingi, the institution stands today as the oldest of its kind in the world, but that’s not the only reason it’s such a special place. It is here, in the Thingvellir National Park, that the mighty tectonic plates of North America and Europe meet. Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Gullfoss, Blaskogabyggd, South RegionContinue on to the impressive Gullfoss waterfall, widely considered to be one of Iceland’s most beautiful sights.
