What is the best way to get to Thorsmork?

I'm in touch with a travel agent about my trip to Iceland, and I'm having a bit of trouble with the Thorsmork section fo the trip. The travel agend doesn't think it would be a good idea to drive a Suzuki Jimmy to Thorsmork at that time of year (we don't want to drive an even larger SUV). Fair enough - he is suggesting that we stay at Hvolsvollur and drive to the car park an hour's walk from the park, or drive back to Reykjavik and take a super jeep tour to the park. I was wondering what others here have done. Are there other ways to get to Thorsmork from Hvolsvollur? Thanks in advance!

You will have to do some river crossing which is not a good idea this time of year.

You might though try contacting some of the 4x4 adventure companies that advertise trips into Mordor (the middle of Iceland). They might well be crazy enough to go for it.

Thanks! We have actually decided to do a super jeep tour. Unfortunately we won't get to see the interior this time, but maybe another trip...
