Thorsmork, or Thor’s Woods in Icelandic, and the adjacent Godaland—Land of the Gods—are considered by many Icelanders to be the most beautiful places in all of Iceland. This fertile valley is sheltered from the brutal Arctic winds by several brooding glaciers, creating an ethereal floodplain of volcanic stone and chilly rivers. Iceland’s most famous multi-day hike, the 49-mile Laugavegurinn Trail, traditionally ends in Thorsmork—and a bowl of hot soup with bread from the Volcano Huts are a welcome reward after completing Iceland's longest hike.
