The visitor center is located on top of the North American plate, but you will for the most part walk between the two plates. There is so much facinating landscape to see there. We hiked for a few hours between the plates, and were very...More
Thingvellir area is really good to hike. I recommend you to go as early as possible, as some the main highlights get overcrowded fast with all the tourist buses.
From most of the parking lots, you can easily access the main points: the visitor's centre,...More
Part of the Golden Circle tour, this area has everything, spectacular views and walks, lakes, waterfalls and streams and the immense rift where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. It was truly awe inspiring to walk through the rift with the rocks towering...More
This is the historic seat of the Icelandic parliament from that 10th century. It lies in the meeting point of the American and European tectonic plates with a nice canyon. You can have a nice walk along the trails, enjoy the sites in the vista...More
A truly interesting and beautiful location on our planet! Two continents meet at this spot and we could walk along this path. Awe inspiring! The waster falls are beautiful. The water is crystal clear. A bit windy but that’s expected. Dress appropriately. The weather changes...More
Got to see historical sites here (the first Parliament site in mankind history). You can also see the rift valley caused by the separation of 2 tectonic plates. You can hike along the path to enjoy the scenic view. The only complain is the USD...More
Read about this before you go so you will understand the historical significance of the area. We had a guide who explained it all.

Wear good boots/shoes, preferably...More
I can't vouch for the water temperature, but when we were there in early July the air temperature was only 50 degrees F...imagine it will be a fair amount colder in September. Hope they can provide you appropriate wetsuits...

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 might want to look for Golden Circle Tours.
Some offer a large bus, some offer mini-buses, so you can decide as to how much of a crowd you want to put up with.
My friends and I did Our Day Tours ... they pick you up at your hotel and drop you off there at the end. It's a day-long trip, and the driver/guide points out the various places of interest and gives you additional information.
Our Day Tours is only 3-4 years old and is a family outfit ... 3 sons run it, other family members drive buses. On my tour, we had their Dad, who was really nice.
Hope this helps.
