Þórsmörk Nature Reserve
Walk on warm lava
This tour will take you to the eruption area from 2010, where the lava is still warm!
We start the day with a drive along the beautiful south coast to Seljalandsfoss waterfall, but it is also possible to join the tour from there. The journey proceeds to Skógafoss waterfall where we take an exciting drive in a mountain truck up the bridge over Skógá river. From there we hike (5-6 hours) between two glaciers, Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, to the new volcano where we explore the warm lava from 2010. In the afternoon we walk into Þórsmörk nature reserve where we are picked up. On the way out of Þórsmörk we drive across unbridged glacial rivers before returning to Reykjavík in the afternoon. This tour has it all, hiking, off road driving, glaciers and volcanoes.
