How to get there
Parliamentary Plains are the most important
historic site of the country. They
are located just below the western fault line
of the Icelandic Graben within the boundaries of the first National
Park, which was established in 1928.
The oldest parliament of the world was founded here in 930 on
Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake
of the country.
One of the country's most important
historic sites, Skalholt, is located nearby. It was the seat of the
bishops of the southern see for 740 years and a school was
established there around the year 1056. Nowadays it is
still a school centre, mainly used for all kinds of courses and
adult education. An excellent salmon river,
runs past the hamlet. The second largest spring fed river, Bruara,
north and west of Skalholt, offers good trout fishing. It had a
natural stone arch, used by travellers and vagabonds to get to
Skalholt. One of the bishops' wives had it demolished to prevent the
vagabonds from pestering the household. The distance from the capital
is about 90 km. .
