Thorsmork Volcano Hike
Hike from Þórsmörk to Fimmvörðuháls with new lava and volcanic craters!
This hike will take you to the Thorsmork valley, named after the legendary Viking God Thor himself, an oasis of natural beauty, amongst dark lava fields and imposing glaciers. From there we will move on to Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull, mighty glaciers that host the capricious Katla, the notorious volcano, which caused havoc in 2010. Then we will move to the craters created by that eruption, named Magni and Móði, after sons of Þór. It is the complete hike, crammed with sensational scenery that will remain with you for the rest of your life!

The Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon
Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and the Secret Lagoon!
There are three parts to the iconic Golden Circle tour: the geothermal area known as Geysir, famous for its many hot springs, which fire torrents of bubbling water up to 25 meters into the air. The historic and geologically significant Thingvellir National Park, which bisects two continents and is home to Althingi, site of the oldest continuously running parliament, founded in 930 AD and the majestic Gullfoss (the golden waterfall), where a cascading stream of water, crashes over a chasm in an idyllic setting.
Then when we move onto the Secret Lagoon, an ancient geothermal bathing pool, known as the old pool, in Icelandic, which is situated in the idyllic area of Flúðir. It has warm, temperate waters and is set amidst stunning nature, making it a profound, relaxing and enjoyable experience.

It is a sensual feast, which will excite and delight in equal measure: a nature lover’s dream that is breathtakingly beautiful.
