Þórsmörk is a magnificent valley named after Þór (Thor), the god of Thunder. It’s an oasis of clear water creeks set in a unique location between three glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindafjallajökull. The ring of glaciers and mountains shield the valley from the harsh weather conditions of the Icelandic highlands, the ideal conditions for a micro-climate. The diverse flora and magnificent landscape is a must for nature lovers and meltwater from the surrounding glaciers create constantly changing rushing torrents across the valley floor.
From Þórsmörk we drive to the graceful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where the sure-footed can walk behind the broad cascade and perhaps discover the mythical pot of gold hidden there. Onto the dramatic Gígjökull glacier where you can see inside an ice cave. The photo-opportunities on this day tour are legendary, with no need for specialised equipment.
The drive to Þórsmörk is highly enjoyable in our Super Jeeps because in order to reach Þórsmörk we have to cross glacial rivers and rough tracks.
