We drive from Reykjavik city to Thingvellir National Park, which is one of the country’s most significant historical sites because it was there that Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. Thingvellir is one of the most frequently visited tourist sites in the country. Each year, thousands of visitors go there to become better acquainted with Iceland's greatest historical site and jewel of nature.
Thingvellir was declared a national park in 1930 and nominated to the World Heritage List on July 2, 2004. The nomination states that the site is of outstanding universal value and should be preserved as a cultural site and for its natural environment. At Thingvellir it is clearly visible how the Eurasian and North American plate boundaries run through Iceland - there the plates break apart and the land between subsides.
From Thingvellir we head along mountain tracks towards the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, the one hot spring on Earth after which all other spouting hot springs are named. Although the great Geysir is not active at the moment the idle Strokkur will erupt every 5-7 minutes - so get your camera ready.
From there we drive to Gullfoss (the Golden waterfall) where your proximity to its edge is so close you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face and on a sunny day a rainbow is likely to show up.
We drive into the mountain road Kjolur enjoying the view of the mountains Jarlhettur (The earl's hat) on the east side of Langjökull; a palagonitic mountain range, which originated in a fissure eruption during Ice Age. Then we kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjokull glacier (Long glacier), the second largest ice cap in Iceland after Vatnajökull, with the size of 953 km2. Its volume is 195 km³ and the ice is up to 580 meters thick. The highest point of the ice cap is about 1,450 meters above sea level. Langjokull is shrinking quite fast, and some researchers believe that it will disappear in about 150 years if climate change continues at its recent pace.
