About the tour

Fimmvörðuháls Trek

Hiking from Skógar to Þórsmörk & Þórsmörk Valley

One of Iceland’s most beautiful trails. The vista is otherworldly as we make our way across the famous Fimmvörðuháls trail from Skógar to Þórsmörk. The journey starts at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall as we make our way up the right side of the waterfall and follow the stream giving us a view of about twenty other stunning waterfalls. The first part of the trail is the steepest when we are reaching high up to the highlands, only to be greeted by glacier and volcano views. We are hiking in the foothills of Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the landscape surrounding it is just magical, snowy fields, lava terrain and moss.

Quickly, we will start to see the magical new lava field, Goðahraun, formed in the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010. When making our way across the Morinsheiði heath we will see endless marks from the eruption, the highlight being the two new volcanic craters Magni and Móði which are still to this day warm if you only dig a little into the ash.

The day is filled with constants adventures and endless 360°mountain, glacier and volcano views. The terrain is never the same the exciting mountain ridges Kattarhryggir and Heljarkambur, which add a lot to the experience.

The Fimmvörðuháls trail takes you to the fertile Þórsmörk Valley where we will stay the night in a cozy mountain hut. There we will enjoy a local feast of Icelandic lamb BBQ. The next morning we have Þórsmörk as our playfields. This green oasis is known as a hiker's paradise and our options are endless. The surrounding mountains, Valahnúkur, Útigönguhöfði, the canyon Strákagil and the Elf church are amongst the options we have for this venture day ahead and we will make the most of it before heading back to Reykjavík in the afternoon.
