See the beautiful and recluse natural reserve and paradise for hikers, Thorsmork valley, on the Thorsmork Iceland Jeep Tour.
Thorsmork is a magical nature reserve set between three glaciers. The valley, wich takes it´s name from the Norse god Thor, is rich with geological wonders. With its many hiking trails, this is truly a hiker´s paradise. Poetic rivers and stately mountains.
Located on the south coast of Iceland, the region can be reached best by car or bus. As usual, a lot of the landmarks are only reached by hiking, so appropriate clothing is advised. Furthermore, the region with partly plain areas, partly hills and mountains is perfectly suited for an adventure: Driving off-road is a stunning experience you would not want to miss.
Thorsmork is one of the most popular hiking areas in Iceland. Named after the pagan god of thunder, Thor (Thorsmork translates, roughly, to “Thor’s forest”), the valley often brings to mind the cinematic landscapes of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The valley is sure to take your breath away.
