A day tour without a guide to Þórsmörk, an oasis of natural birch woods. The landscapes of this charming destination is a series of deep valleys, crisscrossed by numerous fast flowing rivers, fantastic hiking trails and glaciers on three sides.
You can step on the bus on three bus stops in Reykjavik; in Aðalstræti 2 at 7:30, at Reykjavik campsite Laugardalur at 7:45 and Reykjavik Miklabraut at 8:00. You can also embark the bus in Selfoss (N1 gas station) at 8:50 and Hella at 9:25. The bus will take along the south shore through the fertile green countryside into the remoteness of the Highlands. On the way to Þórsmörk the bus has to stop in villages and towns to pick up passengers. The last stop on the main road is at the food stand at Seljalandsfoss where you can buy lunch packages. After that we head on to rougher roads where the bus has to cross several unbridged rivers.
There are two stops in Þórsmörk: BÁSAR and LANGIDALUR so you must decide which one you chose to visit. We are scheduled to arrive at 12:00 and depart again at 14:30 from Langidalur and 14:45 from Básar. In both places you can choose from various short hikes.
