Description

Embark on an unforgettable adventure in the remote Highlands region of Iceland with this 11-hour private super jeep tour to the Thorsmork valley. This tour is perfect for those seeking a personalized and immersive experience in one of Iceland’s most beautiful and rugged regions.

Your journey begins with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. A professional driver-guide will meet you at your location, ensuring a hassle-free start to your day.

From there, you’ll travel in a specially equipped super jeep designed to handle the challenging terrain of Thorsmork and the Icelandic Highlands. The vehicle can accommodate up to five guests.

One of the key benefits of this tour is its private nature. You can explore at your own pace and focus on the attractions that interest you the most. The flexibility of the excursion also offers a more relaxed experience, free from the constraints of a larger group tour.

To make your trip more enjoyable and enriching, your guide will share unique stories and trivia about the stops of your itinerary. Your guide’s local knowledge and expertise will enhance your understanding of Iceland’s geology and history, particularly of Thorsmork.

The first stop on your itinerary is the iconic Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Known for its unique cave that allows visitors to walk behind the cascading water, Seljalandsfoss offers a spectacular sightseeing experience.

As you head to the Highlands, remarkable glacier views will welcome you. One of the closest you’ll get to is Gigjokull, an outlet glacier of the larger Eyjafjallajokull ice cap. 

Here, you’ll witness the dramatic aftermath of the 2010 volcanic eruption, which caused significant changes to the landscape. The area provides a fascinating glimpse into the power of Iceland’s natural forces.

Your journey then takes you deep into the Thorsmork valley, a nature reserve named after the Norse god Thor. Thorsmork is characterized by its dramatic scenery, including deep canyons, towering mountains, braided rivers, and rich flora.

In Thorsmork, you’ll explore the Basar area, known for its lush vegetation and striking rock formations. While in the area, you’ll see birch woodlands, easy hiking trails, and stunning mountain scenery. 

A highlight of the Thorsmork visit is the hike to the Valahnukur mountain. The mountain reaches a height of 1503 feet (458 meters). 

At the mountain’s peak, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, glaciers, and mountains. These magnificent vistas are truly breathtaking and provide a perfect backdrop for memorable photos.

After a day filled with adventure and natural beauty, you’ll return to Reykjavik in the comfort of the super jeep, reflecting on the incredible sights and experiences of the day.
