Tour description

This stunning helicopter tour will take you on a journey of exploration over some of Iceland’s most impressive glaciers – offering a fascinating insight into one of the most sublime natural phenomena that our world has to offer. We will be flying over Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, which spans an impressive 8100 km and has numerous outlet glaciers that unfurl like tongues from the main body of the glacier. We will also see some mesmerizing glacial lagoons like Fjallsárlón and Jökulsárlón. The latter is famed for the shimmering hunks of ice that glide across its crystalline surface and come to rest like glimmering jewels on the dark volcanic sands of the iconic Diamond Beach.

We will land at Grænalón (the green lagoon), where you can explore the vast area, which was once a glacial lake – surrounded by mighty glacial walls and a plethora of other amazing sights. We will also see the vast Öræfajökull volcano, which plays host to Iceland’s largest peak, Mt. Hvannadalshnjúkur – a sublime place that really epitomizes the land of fire and ice. Your friendly pilot will tell you all about the amazing things that you are seeing, making it the perfect way to see some of Iceland’s most majestic sights. If you want a different perspective on some of the most magical places that the land of fire and ice has to offer, then this is the ideal trip for you.

Please note – we highly recommend wearing warm and waterproof clothing during the trip as Iceland can be surprisingly cold.
