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.
Each of our day hikes takes you into a particular area of Iceland’s myriad of entrancing and captivating places. Such places are not just visually wonderful but they also engender strong emotions that stir both the mind and the heart. By hiking in such areas, nature’s awesome grandeur can be fully appreciated and relished. Hiking also allows time to stand, to stare and to permit the rich surrounding nature to envelop you.
By combining each of our three most popular and contrasting hikes (Þórsmörk, Fimmvörðuháls, and Þríhyrningur), into a Combo Tour, the impact of experiencing such glorious landscapes is hugely memorable.
We have put together this 4-Day package that allows you to experience awe-inspiring landscapes along with fun and exciting activities. This is the perfect 4-day package for a winter vacation in Iceland. The itinerary has the flexibility needed for a winter tour in Iceland. We check weather and adjust the itinerary and thus make sure you get the most out of your winter vacation.
Discover the land of extreme contrast. This is your chance to experience 8 days of exceptional landscapes and geographical phenomena! Prepare to be impressed by the unearthly beauty of Landmannalaugar, Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls hiking trails and beautiful natural surroundings. The tour starts in Landmannalaugar, one of Iceland´s wonders and most geologically active areas with the active volcano Hekla close by. Hike towards the ill-named crater lake, Ljóti Pollur (Ugly Puddle), to Iceland's most colorful volcano called Brennisteinalda or Suðuhámur, liparite mountain where you can have a great view on the entire Landmannalaugar area. Relax in a natural hot pool, where both hot and cold water flow out from beneath Laugahraun Lava, while you enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding you.
Finally, embark on the adventure of Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls Trek, a truly great trail which demonstrates the diverse nature Iceland has to offer. Rambling lava fields, obsidian lands, multi-colored mountains, and black sands while viewing glaciers and hot springs along the way. Culminate your trip in Thorsmork as we hike up to the Fimmvörðuháls Pass- between Eyjafjallajökull and the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. On our journey, we reach the new craters named Magni and Móði after the Thunder God's sons, Thor, and formed in the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010. We end our adventure with a nice barbecue dinner on our last night in Thorsmork.
You’ll also enjoy the benefits of a relaxed traveling pace and minimal hotel changes through your stay, so there‘s more time to experience the true essence of Iceland‘s nature and culture.
Each day enjoys inspiring guided short hikes on trails in both world-famous areas as well as lesser-known but equally fantastic destinations. Some examples include majestic Asbyrgi Canyon, the beloved Thorsmork and Myvatn Nature Reserves and the colorful Landmannalaugar hot spring wilderness. Your expert guide will also share Icelandic stories and folktales connected to the areas where you hike. A highlight of the trip is a visit to charming Siglufjordur, a town becoming known for its excellent outdoor recreation.
At the end of the day, relax in comfortable countryside hotels with private bathroom facilities. Several hotels have outdoor geothermal hot tubs a perfect way to end a day on scenic trails!
This tour combines enjoyable short hikes with sightseeing in a small coach or tour van. Each hike generally ranges from 1- 5 hours, with the longest hiking done on Day 6. Hikes offered during the tour are a mixture of easy and moderate routes. Participants do not need to be expert hikers, but they should be in reasonable physical shape. The trip hiking is also designed to be flexible: each day’s hiking will be adjusted to your group’s general fitness level, weather and trail conditions.
A big appeal of hiking in Iceland is that it is an authentic, natural experience. This means most hiking paths in Iceland are not paved. Expect trails to have lava rocks, loose gravel, soft dirt and muddy areas. In some cases, trails follow narrow paths created from sheep trails. We highly recommend that you bring hiking poles/alpine walking sticks on this tour.
The guide has the right to change hiking routes in the itinerary based on weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Some of the days involve driving on unpaved wilderness tracks in the highlands. Be prepared to expect bumpy roads! It‘s all part of the authentic adventure and fun of exploring the highlands!
We will start this tour in Landmannalaugar, a geothermal wonderland, and make our way south through the Highlands. On the way, we will view fields of obsidian, red and yellow mountains, black sands and sparkling white glaciers. The Laugavegur trail ends in Thorsmörk, a green valley nestled at the foot of the famous glacier Eyjafjallajökull.
From Thorsmork we hike up to the newest craters at Fimmvörduháls named Magni and Móði, after the sons of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. The area is still warm since the eruption in 2010. On this 6 days trek, you experience some of the best Icelandic nature has to offer glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields, and geothermal colors and hot springs. The track is maintained and your guide will ensure you do not miss the best spots along the way, explain the scenery around you and geological history of Iceland.
Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trek was chosen one of "20 Best Hikes In The World" by National Geographic!
