Routes to Thingvellir (Leiðir til þings)

A new exhibition has opened at Þingvellir National Park.

Þingvellir is a natural wonder, situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and also the place where Iceland became a commonwealth when the parliament was established there in 930. Þingvellir has for centuries had a unique place in the heart of every Icelander.

At Þingvellir‘s visitor centre, Hakið, visitors are now invited on a journey through history and nature. At first they get to look into a long gone past through immersive and interactive experiences. Thereafter visitors get the opportunity to explore the nature of the area in a fun way. Before heading back out to the nature some future scenarios are drawn up so visitors are left with thought-provoking questions.

The exhibition was designed by Gagarín, Gláma Kím and Visionis in close collaboration with Einar Á Sæmundsen and Torfi Stefán Jónsson from Þingvellir National Park.


The Interactives were designed by Gagarin with Origo as our main hardware consultant.
