Then, on to the Gullfoss waterfall, the queen of Iceland's waterfalls, tumbling down a deep gorge. Finally, but no less spectacular is a visit to the Thingvellir National Park, the very place where the first settlers held their annual parliamentary assembly and where the earth is ever so slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates.
