Thingvellir National Park
The current Þingvellir National Park encloses the old Þingvellir National Park. While the existing site is concentrated around the remains of the Alþing itself this tentative site is concentrated around the rift zone as the continuation of the Mid-Atlantic ridge across Iceland and it is an exceptionally clear evidence for continental drift and plate tectonics. The lake Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake in Iceland and the water is crystal clear, with a depth visibility down to 12 m.
