The national park of Thingvellir Iceland
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The national park of Thingvellir

Going to Thingvellir is having a first encounter with the Icelandic countryside and its national park at 28 miles northeast of Reykjavik, where Althing sessions were hold over one thousand years ago (the most ancient parliament in the world). The wonderful landscape is made of lava fields pinned between two parallel cliffs: large tectonic crack painting the separation and drift of Eurasian continental plates and American continent. Closer, in the heart of the greeny valley is a sweet view of the Thinvallavatn Lake (Iceland's largest lake).
