Practical tour information

Hop on our mountain bus to “Þórsmörk”, the valley that is hidden between glaciers. We depart for a day in Þórmörk early in the morning and stop briefly in four villages on the South coast to pick up passengers and at Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk in to a cave behind the waterfall. In Þórsmörk you will find many short and long hiking trails that are very popular amongst the native hikers. You can buy a hiking map on the bus.  We stop at three destinations in Þórsmörk: “Stakkholtsgjá” canyon, “Básar” and at the Volcano huts and restaurant in “Húsadalur”. You will have roughly six hours in Þórsmörk to explore – on your own. We recommend that you bring a lunch pack with you. The road to Þórsmörk is an F-marked road so you need a 4×4 vehicle and special driving skills to pass unbridged rivers. Option to embark the bus in “Selfoss”, “Hella” or Hvolsvöllur where it is ideal to park rental cars for free.
