THis is the area where, according to our tour guide was where the first Parliament was held in Iceland in approx 960 AD. The area is beautiful, especially because we had the fall colors.

As part of our Golden circle tour we stopped here first. Lovely views and attraction. But the rest of the golden circle is much better.

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
