Private 10-Hour Self-Drive Super Jeep Tour to Thorsmork Valley from Reykjavik
Set out on the adventure of a lifetime with this privately guided super jeep self-drive tour to the magnificent highland valley of Thorsmork. If you love getting behind the wheel and visiting beautiful places, don’t hesitate to book this thrilling adventure.
Your guide will bring your super jeep to your meeting point in Reykjavik, and you’ll take your position in the driver’s seat. This vehicle is fun to drive and has been perfectly modified to take on the Highland roads to Thorsmork.
You’ll drive out of Reykjavik and pass through the beautiful, barren Hellisheidi plateau, where you’ll see a geothermal power plant. You’ll then reach the South Coast, marveling at beautiful glaciers such as Eyjafjallajokull if the weather allows.
Your first stop will be Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which stands around 199 feet (60 meters) tall and falls in front of a cliff with a cavern. This unusual formation means you can follow a path that fully encircles the waterfall for amazing views.
As you continue your journey, you’ll leave the Ring Road and start traveling along bumpy Highland roads. You’ll even cross unbridged glacier rivers on your trip, adding to the sense of adventure!
Your guide will ensure you are briefed and confident to enjoy the experience without worry.
Once you arrive in Thorsmork, you’ll be blown away by its beauty. Three glaciers shelter this spectacular valley, and waterways run through its lava landscapes. There are even birch woodlands nestled between the striking mountains.
You’ll enjoy a drive around the roads around the Thorsmork nature reserve before parking up for some hiking if you want to do so. Your guide can lead you to spectacular sites such as Svartifoss waterfall, surrounded by dramatic basalt columns.
Hiking through Thorsmork is more comfortable than in many parts of the country as it is sheltered from the elements, meaning the weather is often more pleasant. Even so, you’ll want good hiking boots and warm layers for part of this journey.
Once you’ve enjoyed your time in Thorsmork, you’ll embark on the super jeep trip home. Along the way, you’ll make one more stop at Skogafoss waterfall. As tall as Seljalandsfoss waterfall and much taller than Svartifoss, this feature is most famous for its incredible power.
After a full day of adventure, you’ll return to Reykjavik.
