Helicopter Glacier Lagoon Expedition

All year Daily About 5-7 hours Nordurflug, close to Reykjavik Airport Very easy

Take a helicopter ride over the beautiful scenery in the South of Iceland and see fascinating landscape and extreme opposites and variety of Iceland´s unique landscape.

From Reykjavik we fly East along the dramatic South Coast of Iceland. En route to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon we follow the never ending stretches of black lava sand beaches past the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano and tumbling waterfalls. Once we reach the Glacier Lagoon we stop for 30-45 minutes to give you time for a boat ride (not included), ice bergs exploration and seal watching.

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 Reykjavik.

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.
