Þórsmörk and Goðaland are popular destinations for travellers for nature loving travellers. Þórsmörk is north of the great Krossá river, and Langidalur in Þórsmörk is the end of the very popular Laugavegur trekking trail. Goðaland is south of Krossá and has the imposing Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull galciers in its back garden. From Goðaland you can hike across the 1000 meter tall Fimmvörðuháls over to Skógar village.
Both areas are any hikers‘ dream, with endless trails and routes across small valleys and gorges, with delicate birch woods, glacial rivers, crystal-clear brooks and splendid mountain scenery. The sheltered location frequently enables the sun to shine through, even if it is raining on the other side of the glaciers.
Þórsmörk and Goðaland is ideal for one day tour or an extended stay. At Básar on Goðaland and in Slyppugil in Þórsmörk there are camping facilities and mountain cabins.
