The Thingvellir National Park is located on the southwest coast of Iceland. The park features a large rift valley, which was formed by tectonic forces and is now filled with water. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Thingvellir National Park is a place of natural beauty, with strong historical ties. It has something for everyone to enjoy, from dramatic volcanic landscapes and cascading waterfalls to fascinating tectonic plates and deep fissures marking the earth's crust.
Thingvellir's history stretches far back in time. For centuries, it was the meeting place of the Icelandic parliament, and remains a popular site for international events even today.
