Join an exciting Super Jeep tour to Þórsmörk Nature Reserve, a place so beautiful that its name means 'the Valley of Thor'. This family-friendly tour runs throughout the year and should not be missed by anyone looking to bask in the natural beauty of Iceland.

Þórsmörk is an incredibly scenic valley in the heart of South Iceland, surrounded by majestic mountain ridges and filled with contrasting forests and lava fields. It is also nestled amongst three awe-inspiring glaciers: Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull.

To reach this secluded valley, your guide will drive you down rough Highland F-roads and cross several un-bridged and gushing glacial rivers, making getting to Þórsmörk as much of an adventure as being there.

Thankfully, the 4x4 Super Jeeps are fully equipped for such challenges.

On your way to Þórsmörk, you stop by at the roots of Gígjökull outlet glacier to observe the effects of the terrible 2010 eruption from Eyjafjallajökull. This eruption stopped the air traffic around the whole of Europe and threatened surrounding farms with floods and ash.

Your guides are locals with a burning passion for the Icelandic nature and absolutely love their job. They will make sure you are enjoying your day from pick-up to drop-off and provide you with fun stories and interesting facts from the area.

Þórsmörk has a unique and special vibe that you will note as soon as you arrive; the surroundings look much like they have been pulled straight from the pages of Tolkien.

As well as enjoying the amazing views from the car window, you make stops to snap photos and hike shorter trails. The longest hike on this tour is about 30 minutes, but note that there is the option of skipping it and, instead, driving a gorgeous trail from Langidalur valley over to Húsadalur valley. You follow a trail deep down into the magical valley. 

You then meet another guide at the Volcano Huts, located in Húsadalur. From this location, which boasts beautiful views, you will enjoy a lovely meal, included in the price.

Make your Iceland adventure an unforgettable experience! Check availability by choosing a date.

The best part of our trip by far! We loved every minute of this tour. Ronar gave us lots of interesting information about Iceland, the "light meal" was a wonderful assortment/buffet of delicious foods, the hike was a nice change of pace from being in the jeep for five hours, but the best part is taking the jeep off road over rocks and through rushing rivers! Once in a lifetime experience.
