Þingvellir Overview

Þingvellir is the only site in the whole world where two continental plates meet above land. Visitors are able to literally walk in between the North American and European tectonic plates.

This site is also where the world's first parliament gathered. Just behind the original parliament site, there is a majestic waterfall where vikings used to torture and drown people.
