Glacier Lagoon Helicopter Expedition


They say that this is a tour that will change your life!

Starting in Reykjavik we fly East along the dramatic South Coast of Iceland. En route to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon we follow the never ending stretches of black lava sand beaches past the famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and tumbling waterfalls. Once we reach the glacier lagoon we stop for 45 minutes to give you time to gaze at the ice bergs and watch the seals.

As we head back on a westerly heading we fly over the countless Vatnajokull glacier tongues, past the highest peak of Iceland, and to the remote and rugged Fjallabak nature reserve. You'll see parts of the island that are hidden to all but a few and get access to highland lakes, braided rivers, glacial-hewn valleys, towering mountains and majestic and primeval volcanic scenery. We'll explore the colourful mountain ranges around Landmannalaugar geothermal area and Hraftinnusker before we fly past Hekla volcano en route back to Reykjavík city.

During the whole tour we make three landings. One is at the glacier lagoon but the other two depend on your own interest. Usually we land on Fimmvörðuháls by Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and at Hraftinnusker geothermal area. Included in the tour is a packed lunch. Your pilot will choose a scenic location to stop for a picnic.

This tour is bound to exceed even the highest expectations!
