  • We arrived in late afternoon as the sun was starting to set. Kept stopping in various places to take pictures. Will definitely return to spend more time in the park.

  • I visited this place many times,but it not get boring, the view seems all the time different. Very historical place, there as well is possibility snorkel and water is only 2⁰C ( for that you need to book the tour ) . And this is the magical place where you can walk between two tectonic plates.
  • This is a stunning park on the golden circle. The advantage is that it is on a large scale so handles the crowds quite well. There are well marked trails taking in the sites. These range from clear steams to waterfalls, rapids and cascades. Tgere are also historic buildings and churches. Easily enough for a couple of hours. There is ample parking that whilst it is charged for covers all car parks in the park.
