Þingvellir National Park

The history of Iceland and of the Icelandic nation coincide at Þingvellir, where the Alþingi (national assembly) met each year from 930 until 1798. Many crucial events in Icelandic history took place at Þingvellir. No less remarkable is the geology of Þingvellir, which lies on the junction of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, whose divergence has formed the great rift valley of Þingvellir with its many crevasses and gorges. 

Þingvellir is Iceland’s oldest national park, and now on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
