Þórsmörk - The Glacier Valley


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. 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 steam bath and hot pool "Þórslaug", to add to the delight of staying in Þórsmörk.
