  • This is place has history. Its is a very beautiful place. Located between two tectonic plates with unique landscapes. Home of the worlds oldest parliament.  more »
  • Beautiful park. Don't come here with a golden circle guide because they'll usually give you only 40 minutes to explore, which isn't enough time to enjoy this amazing park.
  • A magical and beautiful experience, definitely should be on places to see if you get the chance to visit Iceland. We went in the winter time and it was so beautiful, but make sure you wrap up as it was very cold.
