On this day tour we take you to Þórsmörk, a magnificent valley that takes its name from Þór (Thor), the god of thunder. It is surrounded by three glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull. This ring of glaciers and mountains shield the valley from the harsh weather conditions of the Icelandic highlands. As a result, the area is popular amongst hikers, especially due to its magnificent landscape, and is definitely a must for all nature lovers. The drive through Þórsmörk provides a unique perspective, some glacial river crossing and travelling through rough terrain.
On our way we drive to Gígjökull glacier, an outlet glacier from the notorious Eyjafjallajökull glacier that erupted in 2010 and the ever graceful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a stunning waterfall that drops 60 m and originates from the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. If you are feeling adventurous you can walk behind the waterfall.
Feel the raw power of nature, the beauty and be captivated by Þórsmörk’s special charm.
