After dinner take a relaxing dip in the outdoor hot pools, and with some luck, maybe you can experience  the spectacle of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.


From Reykjavík over the mountain range of Hellisheiði to Hveragerði. Traverse the wide plains of Southern Iceland to Thjórsár valley at the root Mt. Hekla. Visit Hjálparfoss waterfall, then on to the old Viking farm of Stöng, dating back to the first settlers. Climb as far as possible with our jeep to enjoy a fantastic view over countless lava fields from numerous eruptions before continuing down south in the afternoon to our accommodation.

Today we head for Thorsmörk, a picturesque site hidden between the three glaciers Mýrdalsjökull, Eyjafjallajökull and Tindfjallajökull. Thorsmörk is comprised of a series of small valleys cut with several deep gorges and canyons, dominated by the celebrated volcano Hekla. Thorsmörk is an ideal area for several short and easy hikes.
