Captivating 8 Hour Private Super Jeep Tour to Thorsmork Valley from Hvolsvollur
Marvel over one of Iceland’s most spectacular corners without worrying about other travelers with this private trip to Thorsmork from Hvolsvollur. Those who wish to witness ice caps, highland peaks, glacier rivers, and birch forests in peace will find this excursion unforgettable.
This excursion begins when your guide picks you up in a jeep from the town of Hvolsvollur. Many travelers visit or stay in this settlement due to its proximity to the Golden Circle and South Coast sightseeing routes, so it is easy to access. From here, you’ll make your way to Thorsmork, traveling through spectacular landscapes that include a black-sand shore, countryside bliss, geothermal areas, and the wilderness of the Highlands.
The journey will start along smooth, paved roads, but it won’t be long until you realize the necessity of your super jeep. Soon, you’ll be bumping along gravel paths, evading fallen boulders, and even crossing fast-flowing rivers. This part of your adventure is as fun as exploring Thorsmork itself, proving that the journey can be just as incredible as the destination!
However, that does not imply that your time in Thorsmork will be lacking. There are few corners of the earth with more beauty, and it has more than earned its name ‘the Valley of Thor.’ It is surrounded by peaks, three of which are gleaming glaciers. Their meltwater fills the site with sparkling waterways and provides the opportunity for some unique flora to grow. Icelandic birch fills the area’s canyons, while green moss clothes the endless fields of lava rock.
As such, this area is a paradise for those who enjoy hiking, photography, or simply the majesty of nature. You will have plenty of time for exploring, and your guide will be happy to show you the best areas and tell you about the local wilderness. This tour is private, so you won’t be vying for their attention.
After about 90 minutes in this gorgeous place, you’ll return to the super jeep for another exciting journey back to Hvolsvollur. From here, you are free to continue your day, whether that means continuing along the Ring Road to the South Coast, visiting the Golden Circle, or heading back to Reykjavik.
