the pictures don't do it justice. I could have spent a week here. I really hope that no one reads this and that this place isn't changed by tourism.

very nice national park...it's the side where two continental shelves are moving apart. There is a geothermal energy plant in the park that provides tours. check for hours. Observe speed limits on the park roads.

Rift was awesome, even in the cold and rain. Too many busses. Bathrooms are 200kroner per person so be prepared. Nice walk with a waterfall. Some historical explanations (hard to follow). There was some additional information in the tourist center if you spoke Icelandic but...More

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

We visited the park Visitor Center and didn't pay for anything including parking. Visitor Center was nice with a snack bar.

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
