This tour is your extreme Iceland experience. Bringing you closer to glacier, waterfalls and volcanoes around Iceland.

Starting from Reykjavik airport we head towards the mountains and fly over Whale bay, getting it name in the old days as whales used this fjord to scare fish in and lock them in so they could enjoy their buffet in peace and quiet.

In the bottom of that fjord sits Iceland's tallest waterfall, Glymur where we can easily see how the waterfall is hidden in the canyon. This is a popular hiking trail as the waterfall has amazing attraction.

As we make our way towards Langjokul, who happens to be the 2nd largest glacier in Iceland we can withness the remains of the last Ice Age.  

In summertime you will see cracks and crevices in the glacier formed by its crawling outwards from under its own weight and on our way back, we fly past Skjaldbreidur, a shield mountain volcano that is over 9.000 year old. It has a rare shape of a shield found nowhere else in Europe. Thingvellir has been named one of the Golden Circle trivia and has played a great role in Iceland for ages. As we fly above we can witness the Continental rift. 

Our second landing in this tour is at the very active and powerful Hengil volcano geothermal area. Bubbling mud pools and hissing vents make this place magical !

Colorful moss and dramatic mountains like seen nowhere else. This tour should be #1 on your bucket list as it is so amazing and only accessible by helicopter.

Make sure your Icelandic Experience is perfected by visiting this place.
