You can tell that you are on 2 continents at the same time:) For divers an additional attraction-the underwater world of the meeting of 2 boards.

That's a big deal. The impressive fault and the best the few people who have allowed us to enjoy the scenery which is breathtaking. If there is time we will return because it may be educational to know more about the first democratic parliament and the union of Euroasiaand and American plaques waves
The landscape was just so wonderful!! It was so beautiful and all. I had such a great experience and this had helped me inspire ;)
A must when visiting Iceland. Absolutely gorgeous and awe inspiring national park. No wonder it’s a UNESCO world heritage site. Loved it!
