    Unfortunately, as many believe, it is not possible to have one leg in America and the other in Europe. The legs are simply too short

    In the Icelandic Book it is reported that a man named Grímur Geitskór was commissioned by the first settlers to find a place for a people's meeting on the island. After a long search, Grímur decided on the Þingvallavatn. At the north-western end of the lake, at the foot of a rock face, he found an eastward sloping slope, pastureland for horses and a river that was later diverted and provided fresh water to the people during the gathering.

    Highlight is the snorkeling in the Silfraspalte. It is supposed to be the purest water in the world, is 2 ° C all year round and you can snorkel between two continents. But you should bring a lot of time, because the dressing and undressing of the thermal suit is about 20 minutes.
