Þórsmörk


As I have always wanted to visit Þórsmörk, we decided to take a private 4×4 super-jeep tour as this is the only way to enter Þórsmörk. The main problem is simply that the last river to cross is too deep and violent for anything else than one of these monsters.

On the way you come to the Eyjafjallajökull glacier outlet where the nightmare started

Here the last episode of „Game of Thrones“ was shot. No reason for us to go there – just mere coincidence…

It is a very lovely, yet still a bit scary place

like the entrance to a forbidden world

This is a small one – but the cars are massive

wonderful vistas

P0000829

craggy formations

and no-one (at least now)

Isn’t that beautiful?

P0000837

Old layers of eruptions

and the first shoots in spring

Spooky

Islands in the flow of water (we are in a riverbed actually…)

P0000869

Plenty of formations everywhere

P0000875

Old blast fragments

and the epic rock at the entrance where many of the Icelandic sagas took place. This one is the place of the last battle of a saga king
