We condensed all our stuff to make room for the 2 German hitchhikers and headed up to Thingvellir National Park to see Lögberg, or The law rock.
Thingvellir is the known as the most important cultural heritage site in Iceland. The Althing (General Assembly) was established here in 930 and continued meeting for more than 850 years until 1798.
It was cold and rainy and the Germans stayed in the car, having seen it already.
Thingvellir is both historically and archaeologically the largest and most significant assembly site in Northern Europe. In addition to the visible remains, conducting archaeological excavations could shed new light on the site and its evolution – information that is unlikely to be obtained anywhere else.
We then pushed on and headed as north as we could (as the mountain pass was closed) and then west to Stykkishólmur
