Þingvellir is surrounded by a beautiful mountain range and is the site of a rift valley, marking the crest of the Mid-Atlantic range. Today it is a natural park, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and considered a vital part of the ‘Golden triangle’ (with Geysir and Gullfoss). Of particular note is the magnificent gorge Almannagjá, which marks the eastern boundary of the North American plate and into which the beautiful waterfall Öxarárfoss falls.
Other notable attractions within the park include the beautiful lake Þingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland, the Silfra fissure, one of the world's top dives, Þingvallakirkja Church and Gjábakkahellir, one of Iceland's most interesting lava tubes.Þjórsárdalur,
Thjorsardalur is the easternmost valley of Arnessysla in South Iceland. The valley is lush and contains amazing natural and cultural attractions.

Among popular attractions are the beautiful waterfalls Hjalparfoss and Haifoss, one of the highest waterfalls in Iceland. The small valley Gjain features small waterfalls, ponds and volcanic formations. Vegghamrar are impressive rock cliffs, popular for rock climbing and the reconstructed viking-era farmstead Thjodveldisbaerinn, showcasing life in the Saga Age, is also highly recommended.Hjálparfoss,
Hjalparfoss is one of several waterfalls in Thjorsardalur valley, north of the volcano Hekla, in south Iceland.
This is a two-stepped waterfall, situated near the point where the rivers Fossa and Thjorsa join each other. The waterfall is framed by beautiful basalt formations, creating a nice contrast to the white waterstream.Þórufoss
Þórufoss is an 18 m (62 ft) high waterfall found east of Lake Thingvallavatn.
The waterfall makes up part of the 25 km (16 mi) river Laxá í Kjós which renowned for its healthy population of Atlantic salmon. The waterfall is less famous than its counterparts around the country and thus is not overly signposted.
