Thingvellir National Park

North of Iceland's largest lake, on the rift between the Eurasian and North American continental plates, Thingvellir, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, forms a corrie lined by cliffs. Here was the seat of the first parliament, the Althing, established in 930. You can see the 17C and 18C búðir remains: these were stone shelters covered with earth and grass, where Althing participants were accommodated.
