Take an unforgettable journey into the realm of the Norse thunder god, Thor.
Almost a straight drive from Reykjavík to Hvolsvöllur except for a small veiwpoint in Kambar, Hellisheiði before you decend to Hveragerði. After a short stop in Hvolsvöllur we drive to Seljalandsfoss but also we explore Gljúfrabúi, it‘s hidden and not overcrowded like the one before it.
From there we find the gravel road, stop alongside the river Markarfljót and deflate the tires for a comfortable ride on the gravel or snow. After defeating a few small streams we have a peek at Gígjökull, a glacier which melted during the eruption of 2010 in Eyjafjallajökull After a nice walk around the area we continue our journey inland and cross the mighty Krossá over to Húsadalur, where the Volcano Huts is located.
From there we cross Krossá once again and head deeper into the valley.
There we‘ll find Básar, a prime example of Icelandic outdoor enthusiasts. The huts were built 30 or so years ago by the outdoors society so that everyone who‘d want can travel and stay in Þórsmörk. After our introduction with the area we head back to the car and make our way out of Þórsmörk
