Starting from Reykjavík, this is Thingvellir National Park, along the Golden Circle Route. First impression: Iceland is not all ice, it is actually quite green, especially during this late summer early autumn time. It has a much milder climate than Greenland - glaciers cover 11% of the land, compared to 80% of Greenland. Gulf Stream brings mild Atlantic air to the south and east coasts, where Iceland's first national park is, considering the nation's birthplace. The magical landscapes at Thingvellir are formed in the unique geographical setting of a rift valley in the divide between the North-American and Eurasian continental plates. 🇮🇸🏞️
