We came here as part of a tour and absolutely loved it. Visitors center is very small, but under construction to expand - that was our only disappointment here!

Visited in the snow so just did the trails nearest the visitor centre. Beautiful views, dramatic landscapes and a strong aura if history. Gets busy. Loses a star for charging for the toilets.

Thingviller National Park is a beautiful location where you can experience the geologic results of separating tectonic plates. There is a vast area of trails for walking for those without physical limitations., otherwise, there are separate parking areas throughout the Park to gain closer access...More

How often can you say that you walk on the borders between two tectonic plates? Right where the continents of Europe and America slide beneath each other unleashing quakes and volcanic eruptions. Maybe if you come from California. Otherwise it the very first time that...More

This is a very extensive park. Given its tourist reputation we though we would find more attractions and enjoyed it more. We didn't. Road signs and directions are almost non existent and the ones there are there do not explain what the attractions are (maybe...More

Hi, Cynthia, I agree with Kira, I don't know as there are any on-site guides. From Reykjavik there are several tour companies/groups that will take you there and to such places as the Geyser, various waterfalls, etc. You... More
