This icy water is around 2°C and flows within a crack between the North American and Eurasian continents, which drift 2cm further apart each year.
In a process that can take up to 100 years, ice from nearby Langjökull Glacier melts and travels into an ancient lava field, filtering underground through 50km of porous volcanic rock.
Due to its unique geological conditions, as well as its historical and cultural significance, the Thingvellir National Park, Iceland has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
