Tour Description

icy wilderness

Flying over the icy wilderness

We depart from Reykjavik Domestic Airport where we head straight to the glacier of Thorisjokull, where we will make our first landing. On our way there, we will make a scenic flight over Iceland’s highest waterfall, the beautiful Glymur, saving you the trouble of hiking there and offering you a view from our comfortable helicopter instead! Once we reach the Thorisjokull, you can exit the helicopter and traverse the glacier a bit to take some photos, throw a snow ball, make snow angels, or simply enjoy the amazing views and take a deep breath of that fresh, crisp mountain air.

Hengill geothermal area

We continue our flight onwards to Þingvellir National Park, where the historic parliament site is located. There we will also get a great view of Þingvallavatn, Iceland‘s largest natural lake. Right there, you'll get to see the continental drift of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates that's only fully visible from above.

The second landing of this tour is in the Hengill geothermal area. It is located in a remote valley accessible only by hiking for a few hours, or by a helicopter. This valley has hot springs and boiling mud pots that you can walk right up to and explore. It is a magical place that is beautiful in any season, summer or winter.
