DescriptionÞingvallavatn is a lake in the south-west of Iceland. With a surface of 84 km² it is the largest (natural) lake on the island. Its greatest depth is 114 m. At the northern shore of the lake the parliament of Iceland, Alþing, was founded in 930.The lake is part of the Þingvellir National Park. The volcanic origin of the islands in the lake is clearly visible. The fissures around it, of which the famous Almannagjá is the largest, are where the tectonic plates of Europe and The Americas meet. The only outflow from lake Thingvallavatn is the Sog River.
