Explore a valley hidden between three glaciers on this exhilarating Super Jeep tour to Þórsmörk. Discover this natural paradise that lies in the southern Icelandic Highlands on a custom 4x4 Super Jeep, built to handle the rough Icelandic terrain. This tour is for anyone wishing to travel in comfort to one of the most beautiful places in the country.
Þórmörk is a wide valley, named after the Viking god of thunder and fertility, Þór. This gorgeous nature reserve is a lush realm of forest and flowers, where the icy river Krossá winds between jagged mountains. Looming over the valley are three glaciers that shelter the valley from the region’s fierce weather.
Your journey begins in Reykjavík, where you will be picked up in the morning by a Super Jeep. This large and luxurious vehicle allows you to travel Iceland’s beautiful South Coast in comfort. You will also travel in a small group of no more than six, giving you a friendly experience unmatched by any other.
Your first stop is the unique Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This 62-metre cascade is one of the most popular attractions and natural wonders in Iceland. If the weather allows, you’ll be able to walk into a cave behind the curtain of water, giving you the opportunity to see this waterfall from all angles.
A short distance from Seljalandsfoss is the lesser known Gljúfrabúi waterfall. The reason for its unpopularity is certainly not its lack of beauty, but its isolation. This cascade is partially hidden by massive cliffs, making it a well-kept secret.
You’ll witness the power of the Super Jeep as it crosses rivers and harsh terrain to get to Gígjökull, an outlet glacier of Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano. There you will make a quick stop before you continue to the valley of Þórsmörk.
Mountains and glaciers dominate the horizon in Þórsmörk, and you will spend the rest of the day exploring this green oasis. You’ll hike up Valahnúkur mountain for a spectacular panoramic view of the untouched wilderness before you board the Super Jeep again and head back to the city.
