Þórsmörk is a beautiful Nature Reserve and a “must see” during your stay in Iceland. It is a favorite among hikers as it offers good access to endless hiking trails in some beautiful volcanic landscape, with views over the three glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull and Tindfjallajökull.
Getting here is an adventure in itself and part of the way is driven in a specially equipped mountain bus that takes you into the rugged wilderness, safely crossing rough roads and glacial rivers. Arriving in Þórsmörk, the bus stops at the Volcano Huts in Húsadalur, where there is a restaurant and you can get information about the best hiking trails in the area. From there you can easily access the hiking trails and spend the day walking along marked trails in the beautiful volcanic landscape of Þórsmörk. Those who would rather relax stop in Þórsmörk will find plenty of sights close to the bus stop in Húsadalur and can even head for the sauna and small pool. Join us on this tour to Þórsmörk and experience beautiful scenery, mountain roads and river crossings, hiking and nature discovery in one of the most beautiful places in Iceland.
