This tour takes you to the east of Iceland, where we come to the black sand shore south of the famous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano. The recent eruptions have altered the appearance of the landscape but at the same time created a unique opportunity to witness the power of Mother Nature.
We head to the glacier valley of Thorsmörk, a natural paradise, named after the Thor the Norse God of Thunder. This is a beautiful rugged and uninhabited area, nestled between three glaciers and isolated by glacial rivers. To reach Thorsmörk we will have to drive on a rough track and cross rivers that have no bridges so this will be a great adventure! On our way we will pass right by the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that recently erupted, blowing ash high into the sky and over the closest area. Even if in some places ash has altered the appearance of the landscape, Thórsmörk is always a magical place to visit. It is a valley, full of geological wonders and unique vistas that Icelandic nature lovers have enjoyed for centuries.
Towards the afternoon we leave this lovely environment of untouched nature to move back into the capital Reykjavik. On the way back we stop at the beautiful Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, where it is actually possible to walk behind the plummeting waterfall.
This is a tour into a unique area recently touched by the powers of Mother Nature.
