The Volcano Huts are located in Húsadalur Valley in the THórsmörk Nature Reserve in Iceland, right next to the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano & Glacier. The unique nature of the THórsmörk area make this an ideal place for hiking and nature exploring. We offer rustic mountain hut accommodation, local food, tours and activities for groups and individuals. Volcano Huts offer simple accommodation in small cottages, shared cabin-dorms, small private bedrooms and camping grounds. Our accommodations are quite rustic and in keeping with other mountain huts in Iceland but offer the option of small private cottages and rooms with made up beds. THórsmörk Nature Reserve, has one of Iceland's most dynamic and beautiful landscapes, where active volcanoes and towering glaciers rise above the lush valleys below. The THórsmörk area has endless hiking trails and is connected to the Landmannalaugar Nature Reserve via the Laugavegur hiking trail and Skógar via the Fimmvorduhals trail. The LavaGrill Restaurant & bar offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks, homemade cakes and coffee. We can also send you off with a packed lunch to take with you on your hike. The bar offers a selection of local beers and other drinks. How to get here - IMPORTANT! Please note that you will have to take a special mountain bus to get here as you will have to cross big rivers on the way. You can take the bus all the way from Reykjavik or leave your car and hop onboard the bus at various stops along the way.

One of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Iceland was our brief stay at the Volcano Huts. We opted to drive our 4x4 to the main river and hike the rest of the way in. The crossing bridge may be further up the canyon than you think, so be prepared for this. And you need to hike over the mountain ridge to get to Volcano huts. Once there, we found the Rustic tent camping to be AMAZING and fun!! The food quality was quite good and we enjoyed our meals. Take the hike straight up from the huts to the mountain above, all the way up. This was the most amazing vista we had the entire 2 weeks of our trip. If we come back to Iceland again, we will be staying several nights at the Volcano Huts. VERY highly recommended

We stayed for one night in a Glamping tent with breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. I was a little nervous about the whole experience based on old reviews but we didn't want to hike heavy and needed food provided for the fimms. hike. I needn't have worried at all! What a marvelous experience. The tent was well equipped and very comfortable with a large bed, comfortable mattress and nice cozy linens. We used the provided heater and it was more than adequate to heat the space and keep it at a very comfortable temperature. The bathrooms were just a few steps away and we had access to the same as were used by the restaurant. There were 5 showers which had curtains and hooks and lots of hot water (in contrast to previous reviews). The restaurant provided a good hiking meal (buffet style) for breakfast and dinner. Yes, it's expensive but comparable to any European hiking hut. This is the only destination that we did not drive to in our rental car (yes we did the river crossing to Landmannlauger) and we were very glad that we didn't when we saw the size and depth of the river crossings. I would recommend this to other hikers who are not hiking heavy and are looking for a comfortable experience in a spectacular location.

We arrived to Thorsmork with morning bus, did 15km hike on the first and 5km on the second day after which we left with the afternoon bus. The kitchen was handy, but we missed salt and some basic spices as well as dish soap. We cooked our own dinner there the first day, the second day we ate lunch at the restaurant in the hut. Delicious lamb soup! We stayed in private room 21 with the wiew on the mountains, bed was really comfortable, there was electric heater (which we didn't need due to really beautiful weather) and very clean shared toilets. Close to the hut there is a small sauna and a natural pool, which is shallow and not so hot as some others, but still very cosy after a long hike on a sunny day. We liked the experience here!

The private room was basic but fine, though the bloc really needed more WCs. Showers were in a separate block, again under-provided for the numbers using them. The block was detached from the main restaurant and kitchen. The kitchen, in it's own building was used by a large number of self caterers was totally inadequate - hardly any equipment and what was there was old, grubby and faulty. A total rip off at the end of a memorable hiking and sightseeing holiday in amazing Iceland..

Response from Bjarni F, CEO / Partner at Volcano Huts Thorsmork
Responded Jan 6, 2020
Dear Marshall C, thank you for visiting and for sharing your views. As we note on our website we do not offer the traditional camp kitchen as our cantine and restaurant is just next door. However, we do offer campers a place to sit inside where they can make their own meals and we recommend everyone to bring their own utensils, pots, pans, plates etc. We have a couple of heating plates which can be used to heat water but that is really it. The alternative is to dine at our restaurant next door where we serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks at the bar. I wish you had taken the time to write a bit about your experience of Þórsmörk Nature Reserve, which I hope you enjoyed. We feel very fortunate to be located here right at the doorstep of some of the most beautiful trails in the world. I am very happy to see you liked your stay in amazing Iceland. Best regards Bjarni Freyr
