Spend a week enjoying the south and west’s natural wonders and culinary delights on this self-drive tour
Duration: 7 days/6 nights
A winter tour to Thorsmork Nature Reserve including overnight stay at Volcano Huts and snowshoeing
The tour starts with scenic drive along the south coast of Iceland until it's time to turn of the main road and enter volcanic landscape of Thorsmork, where the famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier towers above the valley. Plowing through fields of snow and crossing icy rivers in a modified 4x4 vehicles is truly a thrilling experience, but also necessary as this is the only way to reach our base camp at the Volcano Huts.
Upon arrival at the Volcano Huts we start by having warm soup for lunch before heading out for a 1,5 - 2 hour guided hike, enjoying the best panoramic views of the Thorsmork and Eyjafjallajokull area. If you feel like walking a bit further or you would prefer to hike on your own, then we will give you a map and directions to follow the hiking trails in Thorsmork.
Returning to the Volcano Huts you will find the sauna, showers and a small outdoors pool waiting. If you would like to relax even further a massage can be booked.
After dinner, we'll gather around the campfire and hopefully enjoying clear skies to view the stars and if luck allows, perhaps witness the dancing Northern Lights.
Following a hearty breakfast you are free to wander out to explore more of Thorsmork before heading back to Reykjavik in the early afternoon.
This offer can be extended for more than one night upon request.
Transfer to/from Thorsmork is not included and needs to be added to the booking in the booking process.
