Flightseeing and a Visit into the Glacier

Flightseeing in South Iceland with the Ice Tunnel
A modified monster of a jeep is required to climb the steep slopes of Langjökull glacier in South Iceland.
The Ice Tunnel in Langjökull glacier is the only place to see the insides of an ice cap any time of the year in the world.
Aerial views of Iceland's snowscapes and glaciers are breathtaking in their scale and gleaming brightness.
The ice formations on Langjökull glacier in South Iceland's highlands are stunning.
Flightseeing will let you see the iconic sites of south Iceland in winter such as Þingvellir National Park from the most beautiful angle.
The tunnel into the southern glacier of Langjökull is a great place to bring kids, for entertaining education.

Take to the sky on this flightseeing tour over volcanos, waterfalls, and geothermal hotspots on your way to see the Ice Tunnel in Langjökull glacier. See some of the most amazing attractions in Iceland from high above, and on the ground as you go down the tunnel leading into Langjökull glacier. This tour is for anyone wanting to experience a once-in-lifetime adventure in Iceland.

You will meet your pilots at Reykjavík Domestic Airport, at a hangar behind the Hótel Natura. They will lead you to your plane and prepare you for your flight, which will take you high over the city and the surrounding mountains.

The hour long flight will take you over the western parts of Iceland, over the magnificent Glymur Waterfall located high in the Icelandic mountains, and the glaciers Langjökull and Þórisjökull. You’ll fly over columns of steam from the geothermal area of Hengill and over Þingvellir National Park, where two tectonic plates are tearing the landscape apart.  

After the scenic flight, you will land at Húsafell service centre in Borgarfjörður, a valley known for its luscious greenery, geothermal hot spots and gorgeous waterfalls. From there the second part of your journey will begin; you'll trade wings for wheels and ride in an eight-wheel monster truck to the Langjökull glacier.

High up on the glacier, you will find a man-made tunnel that leads deep into the crystal-blue ice. This unique construction will give you the chance to see incredible patterns in the glacier that have formed throughout the ages. A guide will take you through the hallways and halls, giving you plenty of opportunities to take in the sights in this strange fortress. 

Then it's time to return to the Húsafell centre and head home, once more taking to the sky for a sightseeing return to the city.

Make the most of your holiday and explore the ever changing land from above and below with a scenic flight and a visit to the glaciers. Check availability by choosing a date.
