Thorsmörk Volcano Hike
Join us for a great hike to Fimmvörduhals volcano. We pick you up in Reykjavik and take you out of the city and to the south coast of Iceland. We drive in an easterly direction before we head inland. We will have a short break at the small town of Hvollsvollur where you can meet us if you have your own car. The valley of Thorsmork greets us with its birch bushes and rugged sandstone mountains.
We start our hike at Básar cabin and make our way all the way up to the new volcano craters, Magni and Modi, formed in the eruption of 2010. The hike itself is quite demanding but the reward hikes get in form of fabulous view is well worth every drop of sweat.
The elevation gain is between 700-800 meters and length approximately 16 km total. The Þórsmörk - Fimmvörðuháls hike should not be missed by any outdoors enthusiasts visiting Iceland.
