Þórsmörk is a magnificent nature spot on the southern side of the Icelandic highlands. It's surrounded by Eyjafjallajökull, Mýrdalsjökull, and Tindfjallajökull glaciers. Because of its location and stunning landscapes, Þórsmörk is among the greatest places to hike.

The tour's highlight is your way up to Gígjökull glacier, from which you'll see how Eyjafjallajökull looks after the 2010 eruption.
