Thorsmork Valley and the Ash Cloud Volcano, Iceland
Board your 4 x 4 coach and head for Thorsmork, a beautiful nature reserve situated between three glaciers including Eyjafjallajökull whose same-named volcano beneath erupted in 2010 and produced the Ash cloud that brought Europe to a stand-still. To get there you drive on rough mountain tracks and cross unbridged glacial rivers, unpassable by ordinary vehicles. You will be able to see remnants of the 2010 eruption, and even some of the ash from the 2011 Grimsvotn eruptions.
Thorsmork is like an oasis in the midst of the barren landscape – trees, shrubs, heather, flowers and other plants along with abundant moss and lichen. The final viewpoint is Hrunagil canyon– where the lava flow from Eyjafjallajokull threatened the whole valley. A fantastic day in a really special location allowing consideration of glaciation and volcanic activity.
