Fimmvorduhals Day Tour – Hiking

In the spring of 2010 a fresh eruption on the Fimmvörðuháls Ridge was like a short prelude to the main eruption in Eyjafjallajökull. We offer you an opportunity to visit the freshly baked craters of Magni & Modi, on a day trip from Reykjavik with the lush valleys of Þorsmork as a bonus.

We will pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavik in the morning and drive towards Thorsmork Mountain Ridge. Our first stop is at the popular Seljalandsfoss Waterfall but after that we head to Thorsmork on a rough gravel road crossing unbridged rivers on the way to the slopes of the mighty Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

Once we are deep inside 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 aptly named Kattarhryggur (Cat’s Spine). As we proceed higher the multiple gullys and canyons of Þórsmörk catch our attention.

We cross the narow Heljarkambur (Hell’s Ridge) before the pushing up the last hill before 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. 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.

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

For those who have a car and don’t need a pick-up in Reykjavik, please meet us at the parking lot next to Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
