THORSMORK SUPER JEEP TOUR

Get off the beaten track in this 4×4 Super Jeep day tour into Thorsmork (Þórsmörk), a lushly vegetated mountain valley named after Thor, the Viking God of Thunder. On this tour, you will travel in a highly modified off-road Super Jeep that can cross deep glacial rivers and handle nearly any terrain. Traveling by one of these vehicles is an adventure on its own, and should be on every traveler’s bucket list! We will start our day at your selected pick up location in Reykjavík, but it’s also possible to be picked up on the way to Seljalandsfoss (Hveragerdi, Selfoss, Hella, and Hvolsvöllur). We will drive towards southeast through the mountain pass of Hellisheiði Plateau towards the south coast of Iceland and make a short stop for a coffee at Hvolsvöllur. Please note, that this is the only stop where you can buy lunch and snacks for the day. Now we’ll turn off the ring road in the direction of Thorsmork and make a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The breathtakingly beautiful, 60 meters tall Seljalandsfoss is one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and it’s on the list of Iceland’s 10 most photographed natural wonders. You can walk behind the waterfall on a walking trail for a unique viewing angle. Bringing either a raincoat or a waterproof coat along is highly recommended if you want to walk behind the waterfall as you will get soaking wet from the pouring water. On a bright and sunny day, there is a chance to see a rainbow in front of the waterfall. 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. You can get an idea of the forces that were at play during the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull that not only destroyed the agricultural region around it but stopped air traffic in Europe. Powerful glacial bursts emerged from Gigjokull during the eruption, sending meltwater gushing down and flooding the surrounding landscape. You’ll witness that the impact of the eruption is still very visible in the area. Next stop will explore a breathtaking canyon, which is just out of this world and one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. Stakkholtsgjá canyon is a beautiful natural wonder, a 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) long canyon surrounded by 100 meters (330 ft ) high moss-covered cliffs. Walking to the end of the canyon is one of the most rewarding short hikes in Iceland. This dramatic, towering canyon was the filming location of a scene in Game of Thrones season 7 when Jon Snow leads the team to ambush a pack of wights.
