Locatify are proud to announce their latest app release for Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National park in Iceland. Thingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004 at the World Heritage Committee meeting in China, epitomizing the history of Iceland and the Icelandic nation.
Major events in the history of Iceland have taken place at Þingvellir, making the national park to be held in high esteem by all Icelanders. Today Þingvellir is a protected national shrine, and with thanks to a law passed in 1928, the protected area shall always be the property of the Icelandic nation, under the preservation of the Alþing.
Not only rich in Icelandic history, Thingvellir is hiking, horse riding and diving paradise where you can walk (and even dive) between the North American and Eurasian continental plates, pretty cool huh?
