Abstract

You can start this part of the journey from several places at Thingvellir but perhaps the best way is to follow Road 36 east through the graben . The eighth stop (8), located in Fig. 4.1, is then made at a parking place close to one of the two main faults on the eastern side of the Thingvellir Graben, namely Hrafnagja (Hrafnagjá, The Raven Fissure).
