Þórsmörk Semi-Private Tour – 6 People Max!

This tour departs from Reykjavik, and your pick-up starts at 8 AM from a designated bus stop/your hotel and can take up to 30 minutes. We appreciate your patience.


The Valley of Thor, or Þórsmörk (Thorsmork) in Icelandic, is a nature reserve in the southern highlands, located between three glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull (the famous glacier volcano that erupted in 2010 and caused widespread disruption to air traffic in Europe), Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull. Þórsmörk is a diverse and magnificent landscape with its ice-capped peaks, jagged mountain ridges, and valleys rich with moss and birch woodland. Þórsmörk is a paradise for hikers, photographers, and nature lovers.

Super Jeep 

The route to Þórsmörk has many unbridged river crossings with deep, fast-flowing waters, famous for trapping tourists in un-modified rental cars. Therefore we take you to Þórsmörk in one of our super jeeps, a modified vehicle with massive tires that can forge rivers and tackle just about any terrain. Riding in a Super jeep is an adventure on its own.

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall 

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most visited waterfalls in Iceland. This 66m (213ft) high waterfall is not the most powerful waterfall in Iceland, but extremely beautiful. What makes it unique is that you can walk behind it. Just remember to bring rain gear with you because it is not unlikely that spray from the waterfall will catch you.

Gígjökull Glacier

By now, you have entered the beautiful Surroundings of Þórsmörk. Gígjökull is an outlet that flows from Eyjafjallajökull. Previously, there was a glacial lagoon underneath the glacier, one of the gems of Þórsmörk, but it got destroyed in the famous 2010 Eyjafjalla volcanic eruption. Therefore today, it is possible to drive on the former bottom of the lagoon almost up to the glacier.

Valahnúkur – Here we hike!

Hiking up Valahnúkur is a relatively easy 220m (722ft) ascent hike and takes about an hour and a half. When you are up there, you are standing at an elevation of around 1000m (3300ft) with a spectacular view over valleys and gorges covered with moss and birch forest, glacial rivers, and the glaciers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull. The hike is optional 🙂 

Básar – The hiker’s wonderland

Básar is one of the most beautiful and sheltered areas in the Þórsmörk – an oasis of natural birch woods. It is a wonderland for hikers with hiking trails and paths in all directions, through valleys and gorges with delicate birch forests, glacial rivers, and magnificent mountain scenery

You will return to Reykjavik around 20:00.

Please wear warm clothes, waterproof layers, and hiking shoes.

Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and drinks.
