Description

Iceland, land of fire and ice and the the great forces that sculpture the island are in focus in this spectacular 2-hour trip. Experience the extreme contrast Icelandic nature has to offer by flying across Iceland’s volcanic landscape to land on top of a glacier. The journey to the glacier travels over lava fields, craters and colorful mountain ridge. This is one of the most unique helicopter tours, offering and including 2 landings.

The adventure starts in morning or afternoon at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport where you head straight to the Þórisjökull glacier for your first landing. Before reaching the glacier, fly over the highest waterfall in Iceland, Glymur. Save hours of hiking and look at it from your comfortable seat in the sky. Upon reaching the glacier, you'll get the chance to step foot on it, take memorable photos, throw a snow ball, make snow angels, or simply enjoy the view and take a deep breath of the fresh, crisp air.

Continue to Thingvellir National Park where the historic parliament site is located and where Iceland‘s largest natural lake is. Right there, you'll witness the continental rift of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates that are only fully visible from above. The second landing of this tour is in the Hengill geothermal area, in a remote valley accessible only by a few hours hike or by a helicopter. This valley has hot springs and boiling mud pots that you can walk right up to. It is a magical place that is beautiful throughout the whole year.
