Þórsmörk, valley of the Thunder God Thor, sits amongst three sparkling ice caps, Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull.
Sights include Gígjökull where powerful glacial floods escaped during the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption. Our local guides will vividly tell you much about this eruption, including stories only locals know about.
Transport is in our specially adapted super jeeps that readily handle rough terrain and cross un-bridged rivers.
Along the way, short hikes are always an option, to truly feel the pull and tug of landscape.
This is one of our most popular day tour. Thorsmork is a unique area and our guides know it like the back of their hand.
