Tour Details

Volcanic Super Jeep Adventure

Your Thorsmork Valley trek is singular experience. Accessible from Reykjavik is a stunningly beautiful mountain ridge between the Tindfjallajokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers. This Reykjavik tour is your opportunity to embark on a breathtaking journey.

In 2010, a massive volcanic eruption happened here. Seeing this newly created (touchable) lava, hiking its craters, and trekking through a vibrant valley surrounded by serene mountains is what makes this tour an explorer's dream.

First, an experienced driver will drive you in a modified 4x4 Super Jeep to the mighty, picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Because the Super Jeep seats only five to twelve guests, you're guaranteed a more intimate, small group experience. The Seljalandsfoss waterfall is known for the fact that, when conditions are good, you can walk behind it, enjoying views from both sides.

Then, you'll reach the Gigjokull glacier lagoon. Here you'll encounter Eyjafjallajokull's volcanic eruption. Take in the raw beauty and breathe in the fresh air before reaching the Basar rustic cabin. From here, you disembark from the Jeep to begin a dynamic six to eight hour hike (there and back) to the Fimmvorduhals volcanoes. Here you will see the two craters, Magni and Modi, formed in this infamous eruption. The new lava, large craters, glacier view along with the surrounding mountains, and vibrant colors make this hike truly outstanding. These pioneering trails through the mountainscape elevate 2,300 feet, covering nearly nine miles.

If pristine mountainscapes and large volcanoes stir your imagination, then this is the Icelandic adventure like none other. Book this Reykjavik tour now for an incredible jaw-dropping experience at a low price.
