Embark on an incredible off-road adventure in Thorsmork valley and see the magnificent Eyjafjallajokull glacier on this nine-hour private tour. Travelers who want to explore the famous Valley of Thor aboard a super jeep and see some fantastic glacial views should book this tour now.

Your day begins in Reykjavik, where your private guide will pick you up. You have the freedom to choose what time to start the tour, but since this is a seven to 10-hour trip, it's recommended that you depart from Reykjavik in the morning. 

You can also choose what vehicle to use for this tour. Depending on your preference and the group's number of participants, you may board the super jeep or luxury SUV for up to six persons or a monster truck for up to 10 persons.

Once everyone's on board, you'll hit the road and drive toward the southern part of Iceland, a stunning region with magnificent waterfalls, mossy lava fields, dramatic coastlines, and more.

After a long drive, you'll stop by the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall and admire its cascading water and surrounding vista.

This waterfall offers a stunning view, especially if you walk the narrow path that leads to a cave behind the plummeting water, where you can see the waterfall from a unique viewpoint.

After appreciating the beauty of the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, you'll continue driving to the main highlight of this tour, the legendary Thorsmork valley.

The lush valley is situated between three glaciers and is an impressive site named after none other than the Norse god of thunder himself.

Thorsmork is characterized by its rich woodland, jagged mountain ridges, rough roads, and many florae. You'll see birch trees, ferns, moss, and other types of shrubs that grow abundantly in the area. Animals have not grazed in the valley for the past 100 years, so the plants here have thrived wonderfully.

From a distance, you'll see the Tindfjallajokull, Eyjafjallajokull, and Myrdalsjokull glaciers towering majestically above the valley. Their white color is a stark contrast to Thorsmork's vibrant green. 

You'll also set your eyes on the outlet glacier Gigjokull and hike up to the edge of Eyjafjallajokull to see the infamous ice cap that caused air travel disruption during the 2010 volcanic eruptions.

You'll spend most of your time exploring the fantastic terrains of Thorsmork. The trails here are quite challenging because they require a lot of river crossings. But your vehicle is designed to tackle these routes, and you will enjoy the exciting ride.

Finally, after a few exhilarating hours aboard an impressive monster vehicle, exploring the incredible wonders of Thorsmork, you'll head back to the capital, where you can rest and refresh yourself.

Don't miss out on this fantastic expedition that will take you on a thrilling ride around the valley of the god and make your time in Iceland an adventure you won't forget. Check availability now by choosing a date.
