Afternoon:

  • On our way inside the valley, we will explore the surroundings of the volcano Eyjafjallajökull, the one that erupted in 2010. We stop by the outlet glacier Gígjökull where the eruption first presented itself.
  • When in Þórsmörk, we take on hikes depending on the group’s energy.

Evening:

  • Enjoy a delicious dinner at Midgard Base Camp Restaurant.
  • This night there is still a possibility of visiting the swimming pool or the Lava Centre. Another option is to go on a bike tour around the Hvolsvöllur area. 
  • Accommodation at Midgard Base Camp
 

DAY 4 – Surprise day / Departure

  • Option 1: Reykjanes peninsula tour and a hike to the recently erupted volcano in Geldingadalur.
  • Option 2: Hike to Reykjadalur, the natural geothermal area, for a warm bath. Make sure that you bring your swimsuit.
  • Don’t feel like dipping into the natural geothermal water? Or don’t you like hiking?- no problem, there are many unique hot springs and fantastic landscapes to see.

Afternoon:

  • At the end of the day, we will take you to Reykjavík. The expected arrival in Reykjavik is late afternoon.
  • If you decide to extend your stay, we are more than willing to help you book your accommodation in Reykjavík or help you extend your trip elsewhere.

What to expect?
