Þórsmörk Volcano Hike
Driver Guided Super Jeep Tour to Thorsmork Valley & Hiking Tour in the Foothills of Eyjafjallajokull & Fimmvorduhals Volcanoes.
Þórsmörk (e. Thorsmork) Valley is an incredibly beautiful mountain ridge situated in the south of Iceland between the glaciers Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull. This is the site of the first of two massive volcanic eruptions in 2010. The brand new (touchable) lava, large craters, and vast sweeping mountains make this hike truly unimaginable. With its vibrantly colored valleys and abundance of huge surrounding mountains, it is sure to deliver an unforgettable experience. To reach this secluded highland valley our experienced driver/guide uses a modified 4x4 vehicle known as an Icelandic Super Jeep. On the way to Þórsmörk we will visit the mighty and picturesque waterfall, Seljalandsfoss. Next we will pass the Gígjökull glacier lagoon where we will see the results of the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption. Our final destination is the Básar cabin where we will embark on our 6-8 hour hike up and back down the Fimmvörðuháls volcanoes.
The elevation gain is between 700-800 meters and approximately 16 km total.
