U-Drive Valley of Thor

Thorsmörk glacier valley & Glacier hike.
Self drive super jeep tour with glacial hiking with optional ice climbing on Sólheimajökull.
Trip difficulty ranges from 2 – 3 out of 5 possible.

The lovely but rugged nature of this valley offers a unique composition of glaciers, rocks and wood, not to forget the glacial rivers you will have to cross with a modified 4×4 vehicle to get there. On the way to Thorsmörk we drive through the districts where the Icelandic Sagas took place, visit the picturesque waterfall Seljalandsfoss and stop at the spectacular gorge Stakkholtsgjá. Driving over gravel roads and fording various rivers you drive into the glacier valley Thorsmörk where we go on a hike and eat a packed lunch in its breathtaking surroundings.

Before we head back to Reykjavik we stop at the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull. There we will explore the glacier. And I mean really, really explore a glacier! This trip takes you to the frozen glacial tongue that is Sólheimajökull. It is an otherworldly scene, rugged and raw ever changing hub of ancient frozen water. We will take a walk on the glacier and observe the spectacular surroundings. We will provide you with all the tools you need: ice axes, crampons and safety lines. As we drive back to Reykjavik we will stop at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall.

On this trip you get to see and do what most of the population will only dream about and very few ever try.
