About Thorsmork

Thorsmork is one of the brightest pearls on the string of beautiful areas of the country, surrounded by rugged and majestic mountains, glaciers and glacial rivers, decorated with small birch woods and silver lined with humming streams. It is rather difficult to describe the charm of this area. It has been tried in the already existing literature with various results. The Icelanders appreciate Thorsmork (The Forrest of Thor, the thunder god) very much and visit it frequently the whole year round. Quite a few streams and rivers have to be forded to get there and no-one should attempt that without the company of experienced people. The glacial rivers are unpredictable and the fords change constantly. A new added feature of attraction, is a hot pool “Thorslaug”, to add to the delight of staying in Þórsmörk. Be sure to bring your swimwear with you!

Just north of Thorsmork and east of River Markarfljot are the barren summer pastures of County Western Eyjafjoll. Still further north are the summer pastures of County Fljotshlid. Hikers on the trail between Thorsmork and Landmannalaugar pass through those areas. This extremely popular hiking trail starts or ends here. A hiking trail from Thorsmork to Skogar crosses Pass Fimmvorduhals.
