We will start the day by meeting you at the Hvolsvöllur and driving towards Thorsmork Mountain Ridge.

Once we are deep in the valley of Þórsmörk where birch forests cling to oddly shaped palagonite formations we leave our car and start hiking.

The path winds upwards through majestic canyons, along narrow ridges surrounded by Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull, and Eyjafjallajökull. As we proceed higher the multiple gullies and canyons of Þórsmörk catch our attention.

We also stop off at some beautiful sceneries along the way into/out of Þórsmörk, including Gígjökull, an Eyjafjallajökull outlet glacier from where a major glacial flood grandly cascaded during the 2010 eruption. The descent provides a fresh perspective, offering stunning views over the spectacular landscape of Þórsmörk. We will return to civilization having been touched by nature's awesome power and creative force.

The hike length is around 8-10 km in total (approximately 3-4 hours) with an elevation gain of around 400 meters, so bear this in mind when considering your fitness level.

  • We do recommend that you have a reasonable level of fitness – you will need to be able to walk up to 10 kilometers (3-4 hours) on sometimes uneven ground.

  • The weather in Iceland is unpredictable – please ensure that you are ready for all weather conditions. We recommend wearing warm clothing during the hike – sturdy hiking shoes and waterproof clothing are also essential.
