Thórsmörk 2 Day Exploration from Hvolsvöllur


On this 2-Day Þórsmörk overnight tour you will explore the valley of mighty Thor, the Thunder God. You will enjoy the wilderness of outstanding panoramic views whilst breathing fresh mountain air.

On day 1 departing Hvolsvöllur, we head into Þórsmörk, driving towards Eyjafjallajokull, the famous 2010 erupting volcano. Super jeep driving is through extreme conditions, reaching the famous outlet glacier of Gígjökull where the landscape changed so dramatically during the eruption.

Crossing unbridged, glacial outflow rivers, we reach Þórsmork, after a hugely exciting travel adventure.

Húsadalur is our overnight accommodation, either in a tent or in a mountain hut (upgrade). For dinner, we will have delicious traditional lamb. We will spend the night sharing stories and enjoying the remoteness, beauty and tranquility of Þórsmörk.

Day 2, after a nice breakfast, we continue exploring the Þórsmörk valley. We drive around the area, taking a look and exploring some of the magical, water-cut canyons on the lower slopes of Eyjafjallajokull volcano.

Exiting Þórsmörk, Seljalandsfoss waterfall will be experienced (and walked behind if you dare!) before traveling out to the Atlantic coast and roaming across its extensive black sand beaches.

The itinerary is quite flexible, depending on conditions and group wishes.

You are then returned to your hote.

We had an enjoyable experience with our Midgard guide for an overnight super jeep tour to Thorsmork. His experience and skill in handling the super jeep through the rivers was much appreciated and allowed us to relax and enjoy the ride. There are different methods for getting to Thorsmork; backpack in, a super bus tour, try it yourself jeep (not recommended for the inexperienced), or a super jeep guided tour. We decided the super jeep guided tour was what we wanted and Midgard was recommeded. Midgard is an excellent company and their guide did make a difference in the experience we had; knowing the area and the key features while letting us relax and not be concerned with food, gear, transportation, and most importantly - safety. We elected to tent camp as we are familiar with tent camping and enjoy doing so occasionally and our guide set us up in a beautiful spot across the valley from the infamous Eyjafjallajokull with its glacial capped summit-that was priceless. So, with most Trip Advisor ratings for Midgard at 5, I need to explain my 4. For the price, we were disappointed in the meals. Also, some of the equipment had not been checked out properly before being given to the guide. Those minor items are merely opportunities for improvement. We would use Midgard guide services again, and I hope to do so in the future. Their website states the company mission is to make the customers experience truly memorable (paraphrased) and our overnight to Thorsmork was an incredible memory to be cherished.

As a local, this is one of my favorite places to visit. The two day tour to Thorsmork gives you an change to really enjoy the beautiful nature it has to offer as well as spending good time with knowledgeable locals that know the weather and the nature like back of their hands. I highly recommend this tour for people looking to spend time in nature and are ok to step out of the comfort zone for one night in a tent or (in the winter) in a hut.
