Description

Learn about the stops

Þórsmörk on your own

You can take the first bus into Þórsmörk valley and do a hike on your own and choose the bus from other locations in Þórsmörk for the return trip.

Getting to Þórsmörk in the Icelandic highlands is part of the adventure!

If you have a car parked at Skogar you could even reach the evening bus back to Skogar.

Þórsmörk

Þórsmörk valley is an incredibly beautiful mountain ridge in the heart of South Iceland, located between three glaciers; Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull, and Tindfjallajökull.

Þórsmörk – The valleys of Þórsmörk, Húsadalur, Langidalur, and Básar, are popular destinations for many travellers, not least among the local population.

Þórsmörk is also the start or finish of two of Iceland’s most popular hiking trails, Laugavegur (to Landmannalaugar) and Fimmvörðuháls (to Skógar). Laugavegur is a 3-4 day hike while Fimmvörðuháls is a day trip, 2 days if you want to take your time.
If you prefer shorter hikes in the untouched wilderness, Þórsmörk has serval marked trails that suit everyone.

Langidalur

Langidalur is the endpoint or the starting point of the popular Laugavegur trekking trail. Básar is to the south of Krossá – with the imposing Eyjafjalla- and Mýrdalsjökull glaciers in its back garden.

Básar

Básar gives access to the 1000-meter-tall Fimmvörðuháls trek over to hamlet Skógar to the south. Both areas count as wonderlands for hikers, with endless trails and routes.

Travelling conditions

Icelandic highland roads are often dirt tracks or gravel roads and can be quite tricky to navigate. The road to Þórsmörk is especially difficult due to the powerful glacial river that needs to be crossed and difficult road conditions and is not accessible to normal vehicles.

Southcoast Adventure operates specialized highland Super Jeeps with professional drivers that navigate these roads with ease and comfort. The Schedule transfer runs daily between Hvolsvöllur and Þórsmörk.

Difficulty Ratings

Easy, moderate, challenging …
What does this really mean? Below you can read the definitions we use for our ratings. We hope this will help you get an idea of the trip difficulty to make sure you choose a trip that suits you best.

Easy
Suitable for most people in fair condition. You have to be able to walk on uneven surfaces and hike for at least 2 – 3 hours at a slow pace, with breaks. Trails are generally of good quality and glaciers travel at a relatively low angle.

Moderate
Suitable for those in good condition who are able to walk for about 4 hours at a low or moderate pace. Trails are generally of good quality and glaciers travel at a relatively low angle.

Challenging
For someone in good hiking condition and with experience of hiking. Trails are generally in fair conditions but some parts of the tour might be off track. Glacier/snow travel can be on uneven ground with challenging sections. Increased distance. We recommend guests have the ability to cover 12 km a day on rugged trails and snow.

Demanding
Only a few of our trips are defined as Demanding. Hence most of our tours are rated Easy, moderate, or challenging.

Demanding tours are for someone in very good hiking and physical condition. Trails are generally in fair conditions but large sections of the tour might be off track. Glacier/snow travel on uneven ground with some challenging sections. Increased distance. We recommend guests have the ability to cover 20 km a day on uneven trails and snow. A significant increase in elevation and some technical difficulty should be expected.

Equipment list

Equipment needed can vary greatly from season to season as well as the length of your tour. The following list can be used as a guideline for our trekking, hiking, and longer Snowmobile tours in Iceland.

Try to pack as lightly as possible and take only essentials. Excess baggage can be a burden to you and to our support crew. Keep in mind that there are limits on how much your duffel bag can weigh because the weight restrictions on international and domestic flights are usually around 20 kg.

An extra bag clearly marked with your name can be kept at your Reykjavik accommodation.
Large duffel bag (60/80 liters) sturdy and water-resistant, not exceeding 15 kg

When layering, the innermost layer should be long underwear. The middle layer can be a synthetic turtleneck or wool shirt, and pants. The outermost layer should be a synthetic jacket, and/or a good quality Gore-Tex wind/rain parka and over-pants.

Fantastic experience

Glacier hike with Alberto Marini

"We had a private guided glacier walk for 3 active senior friends with Alberto Marini who is an Italian-born mountain/rock climber. Though cautious by nature, I felt completely comfortable with Alberto who apparently trained many of the other guides we encountered. He was knowledgeable about glaciers and the natural history of Iceland-verified by my geologist husband. Definitely worth doing especially if with Alberto."

Snowmobiling gone wild on a glacier

"We had a private tour with 2 couples to do snowmobiling on a glacier.
Magnus was a very skilled ATV driver taking us on an adventurous 1hour drive to get to the glacier to meet snowmobiles. We enjoyed the vantage point even on a cloudy windy day to ride around to see the surrounding volcanoes. Quite a fun 3 hour tour."

Private Tour to Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach

"We took a private tour from Hotel Ranga out to Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach. We rented a car but decided it was too far to drive on our own there and back in one day so we booked a tour with Southcoast.

Our driver, Stefan, was fantastic! It was a 10-hour journey (including a stop for lunch) so it was nice to have a guide that was a great conversationalist and very knowledgeable about Iceland. He answered all of our questions about Iceland and stopped at a few places we never would have found on our own.

We had a gorgeous day and the pictures we got on Diamond Beach were out of this world. Would highly recommend this company and this guide, especially if you're interested in a private tour."
