::Itinerary


We begin this tour by driving over the mountain heath Hellisheiši towards Selfoss town and then along the south shore to Seljalandsfoss waterfall.

From Seljalandsfoss we journey towards our main attraction, Thórsmörk (i.e. Thor’s Woodland), a nature reserve shielded on three sides by glaciers and high mountains. The glacial melt-off of the glaciers, forms rivers that have to be crossed on the way, the rivers can, on a warm day, grow in a matter of hours from an innocent small stream into a thunderous torrent. Some days the crossing is quite challenging or even impossible but our skilled drivers are very experienced in these kinds of driving conditions and will take you safely across the rivers.

Once at Thorsmörk, we make stops to enjoy the breathtaking scenery with its multitude of small gullies and valleys, with low birch-trees that create eye pleasing scenery for the nature lover. Various hiking routes are found in Thorsmörk and everyone can find a suitable one. There is enough time to take about a one hour hike and enjoy your lunch which you can either bring with you or buy at our stop in Hvolsvöllur.

On our way back we will stop at the rugged gorge of Stakkholtsgjį for a one hour hike to the end of the gorge. A small river needs to be crossed on the way by stepping from one stone to another, - or alternatively, wading barefoot across the small streams. At the end of the gorge we are rewarded by a pretty waterfall, which can be reached by climbing up some large rocks. This tour is truly an unforgettable adventure for nature lovers and adventurous people.
