Journey into the breathtaking wilderness of the Icelandic Highlands on this 10-hour super jeep tour to the Thorsmork Nature Reserve. Travelers who want an off-road adventure amongst mountains, valleys, waterfalls, and glaciers will find this experience the perfect small-group tour to book.

For your convenience, this super jeep tour begins with a pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You’ll meet your friendly tour guide here, who doubles as your super jeep driver. At any point in the tour, you can ask them for assistance and information about the attractions you’ll visit.

On your part in making the excursion as comfortable as possible, don’t forget to dress up in warm clothing and good hiking shoes. The weather in Iceland can be cold and unpredictable, so a jacket with warm layers is ideal.

Once settled in, you’ll journey southeast of the Icelandic capital onboard an all-terrain car. The super jeep is the best vehicle for tours in Iceland because it can go through even the most rugged landscapes, including rocky lands and shallow glacial rivers.

The 10-hour journey first takes you to Iceland’s beautiful South Coast region. Apart from a stunning coastline view, this area is known for its majestic waterfalls and charming villages.

Enjoy a back-to-back exploration of the Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui waterfalls, 80 miles (128 kilometers) from Reykjavik. Seljalandsfoss is a famous Icelandic waterfall that cascades from a cliff of 200 feet (60 meters). Meanwhile, Gljufrabui waterfall is a lesser-known yet equally fascinating attraction hidden behind a rock.

Soon after, your small group will slowly enter the Highlands region, away from the busy tourist crowds. You’ll cross a diverse terrain intersected by cold glacial rivers that will make your experience more thrilling. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a view like no other, with towering mountains and glaciers surrounding you.

The highlight of your trip is the world-famous Thorsmork Nature Reserve, the heart of the Highlands. A breathtaking view of the valley welcomes you as soon as you arrive here. Thorsmork is teeming with rich greenery, from birch forests to ferns, mosses, and other plant species.

As you marvel at its impressive vegetation, you’ll also witness the valley’s mountain ridges and canyons that go as far as the eyes can see. On a clear day, you can see three mighty ice caps on the horizon, particularly the Eyjafjallajokull, Myrdalsjokull, and Tindfjallajokull glaciers. During the trip, you’ll get closest to one of Eyjafjallajokull’s outlet glaciers, Gigjokull.

While having an excellent sightseeing experience, you’ll hear trivia and stories from the guide about Thorsmork and its neighboring attractions. One interesting fact to discover is that the valley was named after the Norse god of thunder, Thor.

After hours in the Highlands wilderness, you’ll return to Reykjavik with a complimentary drop-off at your hotel.
