Þingvellir National Park

View Photos

Þingvellir was declared a national park in 1930. A law was passed designating Þingvellir as “a protected national shrine for all Icelanders, the perpetual property of the Icelandic nation under the preservation of parliament, never to be sold or mortgaged.”

Þingvellir has been the site of many special moments in history. The Icelandic parliament, The Althingi, was established here around 930 AD and on 17 June 1944, Icelanders celebrated their independence from Denmark in Þingvellir. 

Furthermore, in 2000, Þingvellir was the perfect place to celebrate the millennium. Þingvellir plains are located on the north Atlantic rift that splits Iceland between the North American and Eurasian continents.
