The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Þingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Þingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. At Þingvellir Icelanders founded their parliament in 930 a.d. where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer. The name “Thingvellir” translates to “Parliament Plains”. Gullfoss The melting water from Iceland´s second biggest glacier, Langjökull, falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic “Golden Falls”.

Geysir The Geysir geothermal area hosts hundreds of colorful hot springs and two geysers, erupting hot springs. One is called “Geysir” and name giving for all the geysers in the world.
