The Pingvellir National Park is a beautiful setting, but not a rainy day activity. You see the diverging plates and the rifts from them. There is a scenic walk down the mountainside with waterfalls and rock formations. All downhill, but be careful of the rocky areas. No fun on a rainy day as you can't stop and sit and view...

It's just beautiful. Everyone should visit it! Breathtaking! No words! The continental drift between the North American and Eurasian Plates can be clearly seen in the cracks! Þingvellir National Park is popular with tourists, and is one of the three key attractions within the Golden Circle.

It is a nice place. However, it has limited utilities, paid for toilets, minimal security, and a lot of hazard. I would be very careful visiting Þingvellir in winter - IMHO, it is not safe. There are no railings, steps are slippery, no security personnel, etc. View from the top (or bottom) is great, but walking around may not be...

Interesting and beautiful place to visit. I could imagine that would be relaxing to sleep in a tent and wake up to feel the peace and fresh air. Lot's of tourists everywhere. Good facilities in a visitor center.

Went in the rain and couldn't really see much but took a couple of pictures anyway because we'd paid for parking. Would be stunning on a nice day when you could explore. Very expensive toilet - they even take card!

This was the site of some beautiful scenic spots. The snow covered lava grounds and majestic mountain peaks were amazing. It's the first stop for many on golden circle tours. We saw mountain goats climbing up and learned about tectonic plates.

Two big grass squares the size of a football field on the left and right side of the road to Pingvellir. First you have to report at the little cafe/shop that you are staying at the campground. Clean toilets and washing area, but little bins. There's a BBQ that you can use free! On a windless day the flys can...

Mandatory to go, despite the crowds of tourists no place. The national park is well planned to drive and leave it in the multiple small and large car parks. It is easy to stop and start a route. Geology lovers would not lose puden to see the Atlantic ridge fault. Spectacular. also for the historic site of the Viking assembly....

The landscape was interesting, the rift was neat, the gift shop was over priced, the coffee was about $4.00 per small paper cup. But The bathrooms were 2 Icelandic Krona to use. This translates to almost U.S. $2 or for we Canadians around $2.50 per flush! We are used to paying for bathrooms in Europe but this was outstanding in...

This is a lovely park. Restrooms open at 9am and there is a fee. There are well maintained walkways with lots of trails. If you go try to find a guide or take a travel book so you understand the significance of the history. You can walk to the bottom for more stunning views.
