Experience the Thorsmork Hiking Adventure!

Based on 5 traveller reviews

Grab your vacation experience by the horns with this independent bus and hiking tour into the scenic Þórsmörk nature reserve!

Þórsmörk is one of the most popular visitor attractions in Iceland, a must see for all nature and photography enthusiasts, as well as those who are seeking a day of peace and natural spectacle. This gorgeous area is a favourite among hikers, offering endless hiking trails through a diverse and beautiful volcanic landscape. From Þórsmörk it is easy to see three of Iceland’s most instantly recognisable glaciers, the always sublime Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull.

You will begin your tour by bus from Reykjavik. You will be issued an audio guide throughout your trip, meaning you are free to indulge your curiosities and learn more about the incredible environment around you. Part of the way through your journey to the nature reserve, you will transfer across to a specially designed mountain vehicle, a ‘monster truck’ that is more than capable of crossing tricky terrain, including rough back country roads and glacial rivers.

Once you arrive in Þórsmörk, the bus will come to a halt at the Volcano Huts situated at Húsadalur. There, you will find a restaurant to eat some lunch and information boards that enlighten you further about the area’s history and geological make-up, as well as what the best hiking trails are! From the Volcano Huts, you are free to choose the trails that best suit you. When you’re ready, it’s for a day of hiking the Icelandic wilderness!

If you would rather hang back and take it easy on the tour, there is still plenty to be done and seen around the bus stop at Húsadalur. There are incredible panoramas of the surrounding area, and a small pool and sauna in which to relax.

Join this exciting tour to Þórsmörk today and you too can experience the dramatic scenery that makes this area so special! Check booking availability by choosing a date.
