Imagine a natural swimming pool that you can access every day of every year. Imagine also that this swimming pool is surrounded by black rocks that gives you a feeling that you are on another planet. You will say that it is too good to be true. It is not! Welcome to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa in southwestern Iceland.
Geysir and Strokkur are a couple of erupting hot springs, or geysers, located in a valley in southwestern Iceland called Haukadalur.
The geysers alone can be a good reason to come to Iceland. Their eruptions is one of the most fascinating things we have seen in our life!
Thingvellir National Park (icelandic: Þingvellir) is famous for several reasons.
First of all, Thingvellir is associated with the national parliament of Iceland, which was established in 930 AD. Sessions were held at Thingvellier until the end of 18th century. The unique landscape was used as a natural amphitheater, which was perfect for public speeches. Just imagine that instead of sitting in a building the politicians just gathered together on the grass! Since 2004 Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site based on cultural criteria.
