Long Description:
Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland.

It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is also home to Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

Over the large cliffs are numerous big rocks. We can see that some of them have already fallen in the ridge.

This one is still there, quite well balanced. But let's not forget that Iceland is constantly moving...
