Volcanoes & Glaciers by Helicopter

All year Daily About 2-2,5 hours Nordurflug, close to Reykjavik Airport Very easy

On our spectacular volcano and glaciers helicopter tour we fly over Thórsmörk Nature Reserve and land on a volcanic crater on Fimmvorduháls. We also fly above the infamous and now dormant Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano, whose eruption in 2010 became global news.

From the top we head down its glacier tongue Gigjokull that was split in half by hot melting lava. If we’re lucky we might even catch a glimpse of Iceland’s most active volcano, Hekla, and the Westman Islands. En route we will fly over the Hengill geothermal area and get a good look at power plants where geothermal heat is being harnessed to provide clean, sustainable energy.
