Situated in south Iceland nestled between two massive glacier volcanoes the Þórsmörk nature reserve is a beautiful wilderness area flanked by impressive mountains and glacial rivers.
Characterised by dense birch wood that covers winding ridges and small valleys separated by steep slopes and cliffs Þórsmörk offers visitors endless opportunities for adventures and breathtaking experiences.
Vast network of trails that cover the spectrum of skill levels make Þórsmörk an ideal location for hikers and nature enthusiast. The most popular hiking trails include the „Laugavegur“ trail that leads hikers on a 55 km trek up to Landmannalaugar and „Fimmörðuháls“ trail that crosses the volcanic Fimmvörðuháls close to the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
Access to Þórsmörk is guarded by the trecherous fast flowing glacial river Krossá that has claimed the lives of many who have tried to cross on ill-equipped vehicles.
