Private Jeep Tour | Summer Thorsmork & Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Adventure
Go on an adventure with us and get closer to the Icelandic Highlands. On this private day tour by comfortable 4x4 jeep, you will visit beautiful waterfalls and green canyons, cross rivers, enjoy amazing views of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier-volcano, admire glaciers covered in volcanic ash from past eruptions, and much more.
In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel. You will go along the famous Icelandic Ring Road, from where you will have great views of the Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes. Hekla was known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell,” and it's still one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland.
Our first stop will be the breathtaking Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Make sure to bring your raincoat with you, as you will have the chance to take a path behind the curtain of water, and you are most certain to get a nice shower in the process.
We will then drive to Þórsmörk, the 'valley of Thor,' surrounded by mountains and glaciers. There you will see the Gígjökull glacier tongue. You will also have time to hike close to the edge of Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier-volcano that erupted in 2010, stopping air traffic all over Europe and making Iceland world famous in the process.
Our next stop will be Stakkholtsgjá canyon, with its astounding 100-meter-high cliffs towering above everything. Stakkholtsgjá canyon was one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones—if you're a fan, you can't miss this.
We will then be crossing rivers in our jeep to drive further into the Þórsmörk valley. We will stop at a campsite (with toilet facilities and a small cafe) from where you will have the chance to go on short hikes, enjoying spectacular views of glacial river beds as well as the surrounding mountains and glaciers.
Weather and time permitting, we will make some extra stops, such as the beautiful Nauthúsagil ravine that ends with a waterfall, and Gluggafoss, the window waterfall.

What to bring
Good to know
The weather in Iceland can be quite unpredictable. Occasionally, especially during winter, the tour itinerary might be altered if weather and road conditions are unfavorable.
In the winter (November to February), due to limited daylight hours in Iceland, much driving will be done in the dark. While we do our best to make sure you have a great experience at the main attractions, some sites might be visited in dusk or darkness, or even skipped.
