Enjoy a tour to Þórsmörk in a Comfortable 4x4

Þórsmörk Valley is sheltered on both sides by glaciers which offer great views and quite often a good weather too. It is named after Thor, the Viking God of Thunder. On the way we have to cross raging rivers, both clear water and muddy ones. There we will see the aftermath of the immense fast flowing flood, caused by the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in April 2010.

We will also have time to hike in the very scenic canyon of Stakkholtsgjá with a nice waterfall at the end. Þórsmörk is the most popular hiking area in the country and it is breathtaking to stand on top of many of the hills and mountains. Visitors cannot fail to be in awe of the raw power of nature and the beauty. On the way back from Þórsmörk we will stop at the beautiful Seljalandsfoss 

Other stops on this tour:

✓Seljalandsfoss – This waterfall of the river Seljalandsá drops 60 meters over the cliffs of the former coastline. It is possible to walk behind the waterfall. 500 meters to the North West there is a another beautiful waterfall.

✓Gljúfrabúi – Gljúfrabúi is 40 meters high and partially hidden behind a large cliff which gives it a mystical aura. It can be seen in all it’s splendour by wading the river into a narrow opening in the cliff or by climbing a steep path up the cliff. Both acts can be hazardous so please exercise extreme caution.✓Little Extra Touch – We will add some local touch and different places to visit depending on time, weather and mood.
