Super Jeep to the Sólheimajökull Glacier for a glacial hike, then explore the secret valleys, waterfalls, and caves of Thorsmork.
More about this tour:
We will pick you up in our Super Jeep and begin our expedition to the Solheimajokull glacier for an hour long glacial hike where we will teach you how to walk on the ice and do a short ice climbing demonstration. From there we head inland towards Thorsmork along the mighty glacial river Markarfljót. This river accumulates water from the 3 glacier-topped volcanoes surrounding the Thorsmork Valley-including the great Eyjafjallajokull, which became infamous after its eruption in 2010.
We will cross the rivers and streams flowing down into the valley to explore the deep gorges and caves that have been carved out from the glacial rivers. Some of the openings are only a few meters wide and rarely accessed. We will navigate through the shallow rivers in our waders with helmets and headlamps to venture into the hidden ravines and encounter secret waterfalls.
We will then drive back towards the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and venture behind the falls before heading back towards civilisation after an exhilarating expedition through some of the most inspiring landscapes of Iceland.
Departure time: 10:00 AM
