Starting at Skógar, the Skógá river is followed (with 20+ waterfalls) and then between Eyjafjallajokull (of 2010 fame) and Myrdalsjokull (with Katla below).

We cross the 2010 volcanic area, its lavas still warm with the two new craters Magni and Móði standing proud.

Descending into beautiful Þórsmörk, is like standing atop the world, looking down on unimaginable, glorious creation.

Super jeeps return us from Þórsmörk, rugged driving, crossing unbridged rivers.

Distance: 24 km; elevation 1,050m; hike 9-12hrs; total trip 11-14hrs.

Please note: This is a demanding and long hike (24 km in total). You need to be fit enough to hike for 9-12 hours and the stamina to hike up mountains. The path is uneven at times and the route takes you uphill and downhill.

Book now and join a tour with a small group of fellow travelers or send us a request for a private day tour.
