We were part of coach tour organised by the cruise company.
We saw amazing natural features, waterfalls, geysers and the best was the Thingvellir National Park. We walked down the rift in the Þingvellir area, it is a part of the North Atlantic rift system, almost entirely nested within the Reykjaneshryggur-Langjökull rift system. It can be described as an area of sea-floor spreading, displaying the close association of crustal rifting and volcanism. Þingvellir and the Great Rift Valley of Eastern Africa are the only sites on Earth where the effects of two major plates drifting apart can be observed. The rift in June was awash with native alpine flowers
