Thorsmork volcano hike & safari

Iceland holidays adventurous 4×4 safari & volcano hike

This Iceland holidays adventurous 4×4 safari and volcano hiking tour is a driver guided super jeep tour to Thorsmork valley. The hiking takes places in the foothills of Eyjafjallajokull and Fimmvörðuháls volcanoes.

Thorsmork valley with its rugged nature, cornered in by glaciers and rivers, canyons and steep foothills of Eyjafjallajökull glacier is a breathtaking sight that you will not forget. An experienced guide will pick you up at your hotel/hostel in Reykjavik in one of your 4×4 modified super jeeps. On the way to Thorsmork we will visit the pictureque waterfall Seljalandsfoss and pass the Gígjökull glacier lagoon where we will see first hand the results of the destructive power of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. In 2010 a massive flood of melt water and small ice burghs from the volcanic crater ripped the glacier to shreds and flooded the area completely. Our next destination is Básar, in Thorsmork, where we will start our 6-8 hike up and down the Fimmvörðuháls volcanoes. The ascend is between 700-800 meters. We will hike about 20 km in total. During the hike you will be able to touch the new lava from the two volcanic eruptions in 2010, see the brand new craters, mountains and the now cooling lava falls as well as enjoy views of one of the most beautiful highland nature in all of Iceland.

If you are a fan of wild places, tunning and challenging hikes, and volcanoes, this tour is certainly for you. Our super jeep seats 5-12 persons so this safari is a small group experience.
