Description

Start your adventure from the Reykjavik Domestic Airport and head onwards toward Þórisjökull glacier. The landing on this tour is on Langjökull glacier, Iceland‘s second biggest glacier, and we grant you the chance to set foot on it.

Enjoy the almost unrealistic view and the magical feeling of being on top of a glacier.

The glacier itself is covered in snow all year round, so you can take a deep breath of the fresh alpine air, make snow angels, or throw snowballs as far as you possibly can.

From the peak of the glacier you can see the distinctive features of the wild highlands of Iceland.

We then head off to the shield volcano Skjaldbreiður and fly over its crater (sorry, it is an old volcano crater so no lava will be visible).

On our way back we overfly Þingvellir National Park, a beautiful valley where the historic parliament site is located and where Iceland‘s largest natural lake is. Right there you will gaze at one of nature‘s wonders – the continental drift of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates.

There is no better way of seeing the mid-Atlantic ridge than from a helicopter, and for a moment you will geologically be in what we call “no mans land” since you will be between Europe and North America!
