Also known as Þingvellir for those of us with Icelandic keyboards, this is one of the key sites to visit when in Iceland. An easy hour-long drive from Reykjavik, Thingvellir National Park is the site of Iceland’s first (and the world’s longest running) parliament. From 930AD, the various clans used to come together here to discuss issues relevant to sharing this small, tough island, and then head off back to their different corners for another year.
