Tour Description

We will pick you up at your hotel or where you are staying in Reykjavik and drive to Thorsmork Mountain Ridge first thing in the morning. We will stop at the famous Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and then we head to Thorsmork crossing unbridged rivers before we arrive at the mighty Eyjafjallajökull glacier. 

When we have taken in the incredible valley of Þórsmörk where birch forests cling to oddly shaped palagonite formations we are ready to continue and start hiking

As the path winds upwards trough majestic canyons, along a narrow ridge called Kattahryggur (Cat's Spine). We proceed higher that provides a fresh perspective, offering stunning views over the spectacular landscape of Þórsmörk before crossing the narrow Heljarkambur (Hell's Ridge) before reaching the last hill and seeing the craters.

After a nice stop at the two craters formed during the eruption 2010 and named after two of Odin's sons, Magni and Móði we head back and return to civilization.

We will drive into the sunset to Reykjavík stopping for some food on the way.
