Hiking the valley of mighty Thor, the Thunder God, explores a wilderness of outstanding panoramic views whilst breathing fresh mountain air.


Surrounded by Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull, icecaps sitting atop volcanoes, this is a day to refresh the soul and greatly enhance your wellness.

We also stop off at some beautiful sceneries along the way into/out of Þórsmörk, including Gígjökull, an Eyjafjallajökull outlet glacier from where a major glacial flood grandly cascaded during the 2010 eruption.

The hike is around 8-10 km, or 3-4 hours. The path is uneven at times and the route takes you uphill and downhill.
