Thorsmork is one of the brightest pearls in the string of beautiful areas of the country, surrounded by rugged and beautiful mountains, glaciers and glacial rivers, decorated with small birch woods and silver lined with humming brooks.

Many have attempted to describe the charm of this area. Icelanders appreciate Thorsmork very much and visit it frequently the whole year round.

Quite a few brooks and rivers have to be forded to get there and no-one should attempt the trip without the company of experienced people since the glacial rivers are unpredictable and the fords change constantly.
