Itinerary for Thorsmork Nature Reserve

It´s only about 160 km east of Reykjavik but the last 30 km is one of greatest strips of mountain track you encounter – with unbridged rivers and streams to cross in our strong and reliable Super Jeeps. It´s a great 4x4 track and a lot of fun.

We´ll take a photo stop by the glacier just below the crater of Eyjafjallajokull volcano. In Thorsmork we stop for a few hours to enjoy the fantastic landscape, have lunch and/ or take a short hike. On the way back you have the opportunity to take a short hike through small but magnificent canyons with a hidden waterfall at the end.

We will also stop at the clear free falling waterfall of Seljalandsfoss where we go a short walk behind the waterfall and feel the refreshing spray and drizzle from one of Iceland´s highest waterfalls. Once in Reykjavik we will drop you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.

 The track to Thorsmork of often impassable - but not for our Super-Jeeps
