Thingvellir National Park - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A visit to Thingvellir National Park is considered by many a must-do when setting off to explore Iceland. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some of the most intriguing geological formations on Earth, from volcanic fissures and thundering waterfalls to serene lakes and birch forests. Holidays in Thingvellir National Park will also open up opportunities for exciting outdoor activities, from trout-fishing to bird-watching to inter-tectonic plate snorkeling.

Do you know that Thingvellir National Park is as old as Iceland? Read more information on Thingvellir National Park to find out how as well as other best national parks in Iceland

Tour Highlights

  • Lake Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake on the island. Þingvallavatn’s most fascinating feature are the fish that inhabit the lake, especially the Arctic char and the brown trout.
  • Almannagjá gorge is a one of the most breath-taking sights in the park and an important geological point. The dramatic gorge represents the eastern edge of the North American Plate.
  • Silfra is the name of the volcanic fissure that occupies the space between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Due to its unique geographic positioning, it has become one of the most attractive snorkeling sites in the world.
  • Öxarárfoss is a majestic waterfall formed by the River Öxará. This lush fall cascades over two platforms before creating a dramatic 13-meter drop.

Travel Tips

  • There are no proper lodgings found in the Thingvellir National Park; however, you have the option to stay two designated camping sites, one in Leirar and one in in Vatnskot by Lake Þingvallavatn. Permits for camping and fishing can be acquired at the Information Center upon your arrival. If you visit Iceland during the summer months, then take advantage of a fantastic phenomenon called 'midnight sun' where the sun doesn't disappear until late hours of midnight to explore more areas of the National Park. 
  • Thingvellir National Park is located about 40 kilometers north-east from Reykjavik. During the summer season (from June to September), daily tour buses operate from the BSI Bus Terminal in Reykjavik to the park.
  • Game of Thrones fans will be delighted to hear that several spots in the park, including Almannagjá gorge and Lake Þingvallavatn, served as filming locations for the show.
