Description:

Iceland, Pingvellir. This is the most popular national park in Iceland. This valley is mentioned in many famous Icelandic sagas and is where one of the oldest parliamentary institutions of the world, the Althing, was founded in the year 930. This is also where tectonic activity can be clearly seen as the continental drift has identified and scarred this area for thousands of years. The valley itself is the cause of this activity and is getting wider every year. The national park is a UNESCO World Heritage site
