Description

Explore the natural wonders of the Thorsmork valley and climb the Valahnukur mountain by booking this incredible 12-hour guided excursion. Those eager to embark on a fantastic adventure through spectacular scenery should book this private tour now.

Your tour begins when your experienced driver-guide picks you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik or a designated bus stop. Private tours like this one are great for travelers who want a more hands-on experience. There's no need to wait for other guests, and your guide will tailor the tour to your group's needs.

Gaze at the rugged terrain and awe-inspiring Highland views as you travel into the Thorsmork valley. A jeep allows you to reach remote destinations you couldn't access in a regular vehicle.

The Thorsmork valley is between three glaciers in Iceland's southern Highlands: Eyjafjallajokull, Myrdalsjokull, and Tindfjallajokull. Named after the Norse god Thor, the valley's dramatic landscapes feature roaring rivers and stunning mountains.

The first stop of the tour is the mountain hut at Langidalur. Here, you can relax after the journey and prepare for the hike. When you're ready, it's time to start your ascent of Valahnukur mountain.

This gorgeous mountain is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts seeking breathtaking views and challenging terrain. The ascent rewards hikers with sweeping panoramas of nearby glaciers, lava fields, and coastal plains.

At the top of the mountain, you can take a break to enjoy your packed lunch and the panoramic views of the Thorsmork valley. Once you've refueled, it's time to descend the mountain.

After your hike, your guide will take you to explore the Songhellir cave. Translating to "Song Cave," it gets its name from the eerie sounds of the wind passing through its chambers. It's rumored to have been used as a shelter by Medieval travelers and Icelandic outlaws. 

Your guide will also take you to the Snorrariki cave before walking to the Stakkholtsgja canyon. Along the way, you'll cross rivers. You can do this barefoot or in river shoes if you have some. At the end of the walk, you'll see a spectacular waterfall.

The tour's last stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall on the way back to Reykjavik. This beautiful South Coast waterfall plunges over a 197-foot (60-meter) cliff. Visitors can walk behind the cascade to stand in a cave and get a unique perspective of the water — just be warned, you may get wet!

At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Don't miss this incredible experience hiking in the Thorsmork valley and enjoying its untouched scenery. Check availability now by choosing a date.
