Thorsmork – Jeep day tour from Hotel Ranga

thorsmork-1

thorsmork-220Thorsmork is, from a natural perspective, one of Iceland´s highlights, and therefore a very popular hiking area. It’s not easy to get there due to hardly existing roads and unbridged rivers. Therefore, a four wheel drive vehicle is an absolute necessity.

stakkholtsgjaWe begin the day by driving to the waterfall Urridafoss. Urriðafoss is a waterfall located in the river Thjorsa in southwest Iceland and is the watermost waterfall in Iceland. In the early days of power companies, plans were to build a power plant in Urriðafoss and make a railway to Reykjavík from the waterfall. It did not happen but now Landsvirkjun Power is planning to build hydropower stations on the lower part of Þjórsár river, at Urriðafoss and Núpur.
gigjokull-2The proposed Urriðafoss Power Plant is expected to have a capacity of approximately 125 MW and a power-generating capacity of 930 GWh per year. The powerhouse will be underground and a tunnel leading from the powerhouse will open out into Þjórsá river below Urriðafoss waterfall. The waterfall is expected to disappear. From Urriðafoss we drive towards east throughout the historical area Rangarvallasysla, where the medieval saga Nalssaga took place. seljalandsfoss250We will stop at Hvolsvollur for a while and then drive to Seljalandsfoss, a beautiful, high waterfall we can walk behind. From there, we will be driving over small rivers and creeks towards our next destination, which is the glacier lagoon at Gigjokull. When we arrive at Thorsmork we can hike through the diverse landscape at the glaciers´ roots. From Thorsmork we head back the same road and stop at Stakkholtsgja for a short while. This is an exciting and unforgettable day tour, bringing you good memories of Iceland´s nature.
