Þórsmörk, or as it is often written in English: “Thorsmörk” is a mountain ridge in the center of Iceland. It is located between the glaciers Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull, the famous volcano which in 2010 stopped air traffic over Europe.
It is a one of Iceland´s most popular hiking areas. If you have a lot of stamina and like long hikes you can do the Laugavegur trail which takes you all the way to Landmannalaugar and usually takes about 4-5 days. Except you are in really good shape, then you can join the annual Laugavegur marathon for which the record is just under four hours for the 55 kilometers.
If you do not have the time or endurance there are also many shorter hikes which are possible. For example the canyon Stakkholtsgjá is very inviting for a shorter hike towards a waterfall located in it. You can also do short hike from one of the many huts you find in the area. The day trips usually take the entire day and are operated in a superjeep or otherwise modified vehicle since you will cross quite a few rivers once you have left the main road.
No matter how long you spend in Þórsmörk you are sure to see and experience unusual landscapes and feel adventurous all along.
