TREK Iceland – Volcano Hike from Thorsmork
What better way to explore the land of ice and fire—that is, of glaciers and volcanoes—than by going on a volcano hike in Iceland? TREK Iceland, one of the foremost hiking tour companies, offers a range of Iceland volcano hikes, such as the Thorsmork volcano hike. Thorsmork, a nature preserve in Iceland, is a destination that draws outdoors enthusiasts from all over the world. Hiking in Thorsmork is sure to be a memorable and exhilarating experience to highlight your adventures in Iceland.
Thorsmork Nature Preserve is located in South Iceland at the foot of the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted in 2010, and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. The landscape is made up of majestic valleys, rivers, and mountains, geological features that reveal the awesome power of Icelandic nature over thousands of years. Hikers will begin their trip with a drive along the southern coast of Iceland, with expansive views of the sea to the right and mountains and farms to the left. Once in Thorsmork, the terrain becomes rugged and a 4X4 jeep, driven by one of TREK’s experienced and knowledgeable guides, is necessary to safely ford the glacial rivers.
The volcano hike takes off from the base camp of Básar cabin and leads trekkers into the foothills of Eyjafjallajökull and the Fimmvörðuháls volcanoes. The duration of the hike is between 6-8 hours and the ascent is up to 800 meters. The trail length is approximately 16 kilometers through Iceland’s magical and breathtaking wilderness.
The experienced guides at TREK Iceland make it their priority to provide a safe environment for hikers, while at the same time sharing their knowledge about the history and geology of the land. Pick-up and drop-off for the Thorsmork Volcano hike are provided and a check-list for what to bring may be found on TREK Iceland’s website.
