Drive to the Þórsmörk Nature Reserve in a Super Jeep and hike through the stunning landscape with a local guide.

What to expect?

Explore the amazing Þórsmörk Mountain Reserve with a local expert. This tour includes four hours of hiking in a mind-blowing wilderness, as well as some adventurous sight seeing in a Super Jeep.

Þórsmörk Mountain Reserve is surrounded by the volcanic glaciers of Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull (which erupted in 2010).

We will, of course, stop by at some beautiful sites along the way too. Among them is Gígjökull, an outlet glacier from Eyjafjallajökull, and from where a major glacial flood burst during the 2010 eruption, resulting in dramatic changes in the surrounding landscapes.

We will drive between these sites in our specially adapted Super Jeeps which are capable of handling rough terrain and un-bridged rivers, thus experiencing the magnificent power and colours of nature, with canyons, hanging glaciers and glacial rivers all around, set amongst birch trees and vivid green moss clad rocks.
