Duration: 9-10 hours Season: All year

The Thorsmork natural reserve is a large valley named after the Viking divinity, Thor. Located in South-East of Reykjavik, it is surrounded by 3 glaciers: the Myrdalsjokull, the Eyjafjallajokull, and the Tindfjallajökull, and it is offering a large diversity of landscapes of a breath-taking beauty. The wooded valleys, craggy peaks, profound gorges and the untamed creeks and rivers, make Thorsmork one of the most visited trekking areas in the summer time. It is not just by chance that many Icelanders come here to enjoy the benefits of this peaceful place. In September, the valley gets arrayed into the most beautiful autumnal colors and becomes many-hued.
In winter, this place gets even more magic, being accessible only in Super-Jeeps.

Experience many of Iceland's natural gems in a magnificent day tour – Do it in style and comfort in our Super Jeeps.

Tour Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

The Thorsmork natural reserve is located about 150 km East from Reykjavik. To arrive there, we take the famous circular route 1 up to the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Then, we travel through the next 30 km,towards the center of the Thorsmork valley, bordered by the well-known Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

During this route, we will need to cross several streams through their fords. It is always a real pleasure and excitement to see our jeep getting into the water and coming out again on the other bank, dry and without any hitch. Also, we will make a diversion from our way in order to draw near to the glacier found under the crater of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.
