Öxarárfoss is located in Þingvellir National Park (also Thingvellir National Park) which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. Þingvellir National Park is one of the main attractions in the Golden Circle. The oldest existing Parliament in the world was formed here back in 930 AD and marks a very important place in Icelandic history. Þingvellir National Park also features a continental drift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates that can be clearly seen with just the naked eye.
This park was too stunningly beautiful and I enjoyed walking around admiring nature’s beauty.

Miles and miles as far as the eye can see!
The weather in Iceland changes very dramatically. I only stayed for about a couple hours, but enjoyed every minute of it!
