We traveled to Thingvellir twice during our trip to Iceland. It's not too far from Reykjavik, well signposted and easily found with a large car park and cafe/giftshop. Our first visit was during the day to explore the surroundings and check out the tectonic plates,...More

Definitely the most crowded place we stopped in the entire country, but still worth it. This is where the tribes of a long time ago would meet for two weeks every year to determine laws/punishments/etc. Very historical soul of Iceland. The gorge that developed over...More

Was here as part of a Golden Circle day trip - it was drizzly and overcast else we would have spent more time hiking along the lovely trails here. The fissures are a sight to behold, and would definitely consider diving in Silfra next time...More

We really enjoyed our visit even though it rained the entire time. We hiked for about an hour. Would highly recommend going to both sets of falls. The church and cemetery were nice too. Please remember to pay when parking. This funds upkeep and they...More

Another must visit when in Iceland. You need to pay parking fee and restroom has to be paid as well. There you can pay with card. Thingvellir has interesting history and it is very nice and relaxing walk in the park.

The whole National Park is dotted with parking or picnic spots to just soak up all the sights nature has to offer. Vast areas of unblemished landscape. Also good thing to note that many of the Golden Circle attractions are also on the same drive...More

Our family visited as part of our Golden Circle tour. This whole are is fascinating as it is the boundary of the American and European tectonic plates which are pulling apart. The resulting separation has caused various fissures in the landscape in this area. We...More

As one of the components of the Golden Circle, there isn't much reason to not stop here when visiting Iceland. The fissure from the tectonic plates is certainly worth seeing.

Great place to do a little walk around. Cool waterfalls and lakes and night lava rocks. Highly recommend doing a snorkel tour through Silfra. We did ours through Dive.is and it was incredible.

We visited the park Visitor Center and didn't pay for anything including parking. Visitor Center was nice with a snack bar.
Traveling to Iceland in a few weeks with my 86 year old mom. She is ambulatory but can't walk too far at one time. Can we get close to the sites with her restrictions? Thanks. Melissa

We joined a guided tour. Our coach stopped at the parking lot, closed to the viewing platform. There should not be any problem reaching the platform. However, the pickup point was at the other end of the park entrance, and... More
