I would recommend you leave a few hours spare to visit the National Park. A few waterfalls, some stunning views and beautiful walks through the park. Take your time and try to see as much of it as you can.

The tour coaches drop you at one end, you walk the wall, then they pick you up at the other end.

Such a huge ground, white snow and good walk and picturesq surroundings. This place was where the first Icelandic Parliament was held, I believe so! Must visit location, and it is part of the Golden Circle tour.

This is where the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates meet! So you can be on one plate, and look across to the other. It is where the old Icelandic Parliament convened as well!

We thought there were going to be more trails to walk around, but it didn't seem to offer much. A part of that could have been due to it being icy in some areas.

Pretty awesome to see shifting tectonic plates, and the impressive mountains created. Seeing the site of the first parliament in Iceland gives you a great insight into the way politics were done long ago.

Fantastic natural park where europe and america divide resides the oldest parilamemt in the world something ironic there. Beatiful craggy rift in the ground provides the backdrop to the old assembly area. Stunning views over the lake and surrounding mountains. Great for walking. Obligitary visitor centre with some interesting stuff.
