Thingvellir National Park

Dyrhólaey
Dyrhólaey is the southernmost part of Iceland and a popular tourist spot. This promontory is of volcanic origin and the enormous arch is wide enough to allow boats to easily pass through.

Blue Lagoon
This famous geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland and is situated in a lava field. Students will learn about why so many people bath in the geothermal seawater and apply the silica mud to their skin.

Gullfoss Waterfall
Engage your school group with the processes of waterfall formation at this stunning location where the Hvítá river dramatically down from the Langjökull glacier and drops in two separate stages.

Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss
Stunningly beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall is part of the Seljalandsá river and groups can walk behind it and through to the other side. Nearby is the more powerful Skógafoss waterfall with its 60m drop!

Kerid volcanic crater
At 3000 years old, this is one of the newer craters in Iceland. The slopes, which are red rather than a volcanic black is due to the iron deposits being geologically fresh.

Hengill geothermal power plant
A visit to the largest geothermal power station in the world shows students how Iceland has harnessed its natural forces and powers itself completely with renewable energy.

Reynisdrangar rocks
These striking basalt sea stacks are situated under the mountain Reynisfjall, not far from Reynisfjara, a famous black sand beach on the south coast.

Myrdalsjokull glacier
The fourth largest glacier in Iceland, with an area of about 590 km², rests on an active volcanic mountain, which last erupted in 1918.
