Walking here from the lower carpark is quite enjoyable as the scenery was beautiful. This is a well preserved old church with some historic significance. It definitely makes a good photography subject as it stands almost alone in the vast NP landscape. There is a...More

This is the place where the church was consecrated in 11th century, although the current structure dates back to 1859. It’s closed in offseason. Picturesque setting on the plain in Thingvellir National Park.

The church is tiny and has nothing really special in it - but what a surroundings it has! National park provides perfect location for this place to calm down a bit.

On the surface this is a pretty unexciting church, very similar to a lot of churches found in Iceland in its appearance. However, its location in the middle of two tetonic plates adds an eerie, awe-inspiring atmosphere that you are unlikely to experience anywhere else!...More

The Thingvallakirkja should not be missed on any trip to Thingvellir National Park. The church is beautiful in the landscape and the buildings have such an important role in Icelandic history. A definite must.
