The road to Þórsmörk offers a scenic drive through volcanic landscape, with beautiful scenery of Eyjafjallajökull Glacier towering above the valley. We will have to plow through fields of snow and drive across icy rivers with our modified 4×4 vehicles to reach our base camp at the Volcano Huts.
Day 1 - Reykjavik - Þórsmörk
Upon arrival at the Volcano Huts we start by having warm soup for lunch before we head out for a 1,5 – 2 hour guided hike, where you will enjoy the best panoramic views of the Þórsmörk and Eyjafjallajökull area. If you would feel like walking a bit further or you would prefer to hike on your own, then we will give you a map and directions to follow the hiking trails in Þórsmörk.
Returning to the Volcano Huts you will find the sauna, showers and pool waiting where you can relax after your walk. After dinner, we might enjoy clear skies throughout the evening to view the stars and the Northern Lights from around the campfire.
Day 2 - Þórsmörk - Reykjavik
Following breakfast you are free to wander out to explore more of Þórsmörk before leaving Þórsmörk in the early afternoon. On our way back from Þórsmörk, we drive across the rivers, down the valley and onto the main road from where we head towards Reykjavík with short stops along the way.
