: 4 out of 5 possible. Rated: Demanding
The hike of a lifetime.
Þórsmörk valley is situated in the south of Iceland between the glaciers Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull. It is an insanely beautiful mountain ridge begging to be hiked. Mention Þórsmörk to an Icelander and they automatically associate adventure. To reach this secluded highland valley our experienced driver/guide uses a modified 4x4 vehicle known as an Icelandic super jeep. On the way to Þórsmörk we will visit the extremely picturesque waterfall, Seljalandsfoss. Next we will pass the Gígjökull glacier lagoon where we will see the results of the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption. Our final destination is the Básar cabin where we will embark on our 6-8 hour hike up and back down the Fimmvörðuháls volcanoes.
The hike is between 700-800 meters. This breathtaking hike is approximately 14 km total.
This is the site of the first of two massive volcanic eruptions in 2010. The brand new (touchable) lava, large craters, and vast sweeping mountains make this hike truly unimaginable. Sign up today for the 6-8 hours of pure outdoor adventure.
If wild scenery, stunning (and challenging) hikes and volcanoes stir your imagination, then this is undoubtedly the adventure you have been waiting for.
Please note that this trip is demanding and the condition can be hard at times in Þórsmörk. We expect clients on this trip to be dressed accordingly and have good hiking shoes.
