Day Trip to the Hidden Valley of Thor Thorsmork from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Seljalandsfoss, Hella Iceland

    The beautiful, 60 meters tall Seljalandsfoss is one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and it’s one of Iceland’s most photographed natural wonders.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Volcano Eyjafjallajokull, Selfoss Iceland

    Next, we will continue our way in the direction of Thorsmork and head all the way up to Gígjökull, one of the outlet glaciers of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. You can walk entirely to the icefall edge, touch and walk on the glacier. The many craters of this eruption was near to Gígjökull. This caused floodwater to surge from under the glacier’s tongue, flooding the Markarfljót river that flows from it.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Stakkholtsgja canyon, Iceland

    Stakkholtsgja is an up to 100 meters deep and 2 kilometers long canyon in South Iceland.

    The canyon is located near the entrance to Thorsmork. It has a narrow riverbed and ends in a beautiful waterfall.

    Stakkholtsgjá Canyon inside Þórsmörk was the filming location used for the famous Wight ambush scene of Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 6.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Þórsmörk, Iceland

    After our walk in Stakkholtsgjá canyon, we will follow our way to deep into Thorsmork, the scenic valley of Thor. This will be the best playground for your super jeep: crossing rivers and handling the rough terrain will be a great adventure. Thorsmork is a natural reserve in a remote area of the southern Icelandic Highlands, nestled between the Myrdalsjokull, Eyjafjallajokull and Tindfjallajokull glaciers, and one of the most favorite location for Icelanders and many travelers.

    The valley is a green oasis between the rivers Krossá, Þröngá and Markarfljót with wide vegetation of moss, birchwood, and other small shrubs. This lush green area contrasts dramatically against the black sand desert of the Markarfljót riverbed and the imposing glaciers around it. Locals swear that Thorsmork is one of the most beautiful destinations in Iceland. This is the reason that many Icelanders come here to hike, ride or just relax among the birch trees with their family.

    Once we are deep into the Thorsmork valley, you have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing landscape, have lunch and take nice short hikes around the area, and really drink in the beautiful unspoiled nature of Iceland.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Nauthusagil Waterfall, Hvolsvollur Iceland

    Nauthúsagil ravine is a true hidden gem of Iceland’s South Coast. Nauthúsagil’s famed characteristics are the rowan trees growing on the ridges, sometimes horizontally, creating a roof of leaves. We will walk through the narrow ravine and explore its unique, beautiful world. At the end of the ravine, there is an enchanting waterfall waiting for us.

    Duration: 1 hour

    The scenery on this tour is outstanding, crossing the rivers was no problem in the long jeep with massive tyres. Thanks to Magnus our guide.
