    Þórsmörk, a beautiful valley surrounded by glaciers and mountains, is the setting for today’s tour. We pick you up in Reykjavík and drive out of the city heading towards the east. After passing through a few small villages we come to our first stop, Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This is the fall that you can walk behind and thus enjoy from both sides.
    Next, we will pass the Gígjökull glacier lagoon where we will see some of the effects of the famous Eyjafjallajökull eruption of 2010. From Básar cabin, in the heart of Þórsmörk, we will start our hike to Fimmvörðuháls. Here we will see the two craters, Magni and Móði, formed in this infamous eruption. The new lava, large craters, glacier view along with the surrounding mountains and vibrant colors make this hike truly outstanding.
    The elevation gain is between 700-800 meters and length approximately 14 km total.The Þórsmörk -Fimmvörðuháls hike should not be missed by any outdoors enthusiasts visiting Iceland.
