Itinerary description

Easy trail starting at Thingvellir's (parliament) visitor center, goes through part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that separates America from Euro-Asia. The waypoint shows the probably the only place in the world where you can have a foot on each continent. Next to the trail there is the spot where ancient islandic' cultures used to hold their parliament.

Fàcil ruta que parte del centro de visitantes de Thingvellir (parlamento), transcurre por parte de la falla que separa el continente Americano de Euro-Asia. Tal como se muestra en la foto es quizás el único lugar del planeta en el que se puede tener un pié en cada continente. Se pasa también por el lugar donde antiguamente se celebraba el parlamento islandés.
