Blue ice cave in Skaftafell

Ice caves can be found at the edges of glaciers. The cave in the Skaftafell National Park is not an exception. The sunlight squeezes through the ice making the top of the caves light blue and the whole cave amazingly beautiful! At the bottom you will see a stream of melt water.

Svartifoss

Svartifoss is our favourite waterfall in Iceland. It looks like an organ, a keyboard instrument, which makes you feel like you are in an ancient church. The rocks around the waterfall remind pipes. You keep thinking that an invisible musician is going to start playing a sonata of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Thingvellir National Park

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.
