Þórsmörk, or the valley of Thor, is in the interior highlands of Iceland and is an oasis for hikers and those looking to experience the raw beauty of this incredible country. Go on this incredible day tour with ACTIVITY ICELAND to find out why this place is justified in being named after the God of Thunder.
At the start of the day, you will be picked up by one of Activity Iceland’s customised super jeeps and head east out of the city, along the south coast of Iceland, en route to the breathtakingly beautiful Þórsmörk.
You will also get the chance to visit Seljalandsfoss, which is a 60m high waterfall that seems to fall off the cliff as if by magic. You can even walk right around behind this incredible waterfall.
To drive to your next stop, Gigjökull glacier, you will put the super jeep to the test as you splash through rivers and streams. You will now start to understand why the big jeep is needed for this tour! Gigjökull is a glacier tongue stretching from the infamous glacier Eyjafjallajokull, the volcano which erupted in 2010 wreaking havoc all over Europe.
Further inland you will witness more of these amazing glacial vistas with Þórsmörk being surrounded by three glaciers. The diverse landscape being sculpted by these forces of nature over thousands of years.
