Join us on an unforgettable adventure which is the Fimmvörðuháls Volcano Hike.
The Fimmvörðuháls pass from Skógar to Thorsmork is one of Iceland’s most popular hiking routes. The trail takes us up from Skógar, along Skógá River and past its many waterfalls. The Fimmvörðuháls Volcano Hike is definitely a tour you can’t miss when in Iceland.
We continue up between the two glaciers, Eyjafjallajokull and Mýrdalsjökull, to the recently formed lava and the new craters, Magni and Móði. Here the fresh lava is still steaming under the surface and the heat of the lava can still be felt.
Heading down from the craters to the magnificent Thorsmork glacier valley, we continue to enjoy more geological features as well as some amazing views over the highlands of Iceland and the surrounding glaciers. Given that we have time in Thorsmork we enjoy our dinner in the fairy tale landscape that surrounds the valley before we head back to Reykjavik on the bus.
This tour is demanding and some effort and certain endurance is required. Good health and some hiking experience is required. The Fimmvörðuháls Volcano Hike Tour involves carrying your own gear.
Once in a lifetime experience for all hikers and nature enthusiasts! This are offers some pretty amazing landscape and contrast in nature. Many have walked this pass and some do it over and over again, because of it’s beauty and challenge.
