Walking along the ridge in Thingvellier, I was more curious about the geology (about which there was no signage) but there were many signs regarding the historical significance of different spots. This is one spot with a lot of meaning, but there isn't particularly much...More

Probably the most historically important place in Iceland, this is a set of grass covered low rocks near the flagpole with a boardwalk around them as you walk from parking area 2 to 1 in Thingvillar National Park. UNESCO Heritage important.

This spot is well worth a visit if you are in the park. However, it is a bit underwhelming. In the end, it is just a flat rock. But the views are amazing and you will learn something about Iceland’s history.

You will pass it on a short hiking tour. Nice view over the landscape. Lays on the way to oxarfoss. But nothing special.

This area and rock is historically significant to the people of Iceland. Information boards tell the historical importance of the Logberg to the people of Iceland, using pictures to help.

The history of Iceland begins here - you can get a sense of the past. Great descriptions of the history of the area, and Iceland as a whole.

This place isn't as magnificent as first sight as it is after you've read and learnt its history. It is worth doing the walk around and up the hill to appreciate what this place signified as being the very first Parliament in Iceland. As well...More

If in the park then go and see this but read about if beforehand to understand what it is you're experiencing. Quite a built up touristy area so lots of people but you get a feel for what it must have been like a thousand...More
