FROM 40.000 ISK
One tour per person
7 – 8 hrs.

Hiking the valley of mighty Thor, the Thunder God, explores a wilderness of outstanding panoramic views whilst breathing fresh mountain air.

Surrounded by Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull, icecaps sitting atop volcanoes, this is a day to refresh the soul and greatly enhance your wellness.

We also stop off at some beautiful sceneries along the way into/out of Þórsmörk, including Gígjökull, an Eyjafjallajökull outlet glacier from where a major glacial flood grandly cascaded during the 2010 eruption.

Þórsmörk is a habitat for various wildlife species, including the Arctic fox, one of Iceland’s few native land mammals. If you visit Þórsmörk, you might have the chance to catch a glimpse of these Arctic foxes roaming the area

The hike is around 8-10 km, or 3-4 hours.

Please note: No hiking experience is needed but you need to be fit enough to hike for 3-4 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.

Are you looking for a tour with less hiking? Join Þórsmörk Super Jeep Day Tour! On that tour we do hikes as well but shorter (we adjust it to the group and make sure the hikes fit everyone)
