Thingvellir National Park Reviews
As we visited in winter, the weather changed often during the day and long(er) hikes were not really an option. So somewhat disappointing but still worth it. The snorkeling was fantastic! more »
Even though there was lots of snow when we went, it was still an amazing hike. The falls were frozen but everything else was amazing! more »
It was beautiful went last week which meant it was all snowy. A bunch of us just a had a massive snowball fight which was very fun. It was very peaceful and nice to take in. Would recommend some kind of foot gear if you go in winter time though. It was VERY slippy!
As with any tourist location, the numbers were a little overwhelming, but that was probably due in a large part to the tours. The site offered free toilets, a cafe & gift shop, and then the ability to walk along several km of routes at this location of great history, and the border of the European and American plate. It looked wonderful in the snow, and I personally look forward to returning, perhaps with a rental car, during the summer or autumn months to see it in a different condition.
