A tour to the national park at Thingvellir (Þingvellir), Iceland’s most historic place and site of the Old Icelandic Parliament, the Althing founded in AD930 and sometimes said to be the oldest in the world. Thingvellir National Park has been inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Among the many sights included are the massive Almannagjá canyon, the edge of which offers some magnificent vistas of the rolling plains below and Iceland’s largest lake, Thingvallavatn, whose waters never freeze and are home to 8 species of fish.

Other attractions include Drekkingarhyl, a deep pool at the base of a waterfall where the Öxará river plunges down a sheer rock face, once used for executions, and Peningagjá, a water-filled chasm as crystal-clear as it is deep.
