The Fimmvörðuháls pass from Skógar to Þórsmörk is one of Iceland’s most popular hiking routes.
The trail takes us up from Skógar, along Skógá River and its many waterfalls. We head 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 Þórsmörk glacier valley, we continue to enjoy more geological features as well as some amazing views over the highlands of Iceland and the surrounding glaciers. After a great but demanding day we leave the fairytale landscape of Þórsmörk and head back to Skógar on the bus.
Once in a lifetime experience for all hikers and nature enthusiasts!
