Climb aboard this fantastic helicopter flight-seeing tour flying high over Iceland's gorgeous and diverse landscapes, with an added landing on top of Langjökull, the country's second largest glacier. This is the perfect tour opportunity for those visitors who can't wait to get their feet on a glacier, and are looking to skip over the physical challenge of hiking an ice cap.
Your day will begin with either being picked up from your accommodation in the city, or meeting us at Reykjavik Domestic Airport. From there, you will meet your highly experienced, friendly and knowledgeable pilot/guide who will proceed to brief you on the tour ahead. When everyone is ready, it's out onto the airstrip and onto the helicopter.
Nothing can describe that feeling of taking off for the first time. The colourful tin roofs of the city will appear like a patchwork quilt below you as you rise higher and higher, finally flying out of the city limits and over Iceland's rugged countryside. From your passenger seat in the helicopter, you will 360-degree panoramic views of the landscape around you; make sure not to forget your camera!
In no time, you will be landing on the frozen expanse of Langjökull glacier, a visible reminder of the last Ice Age, as well as a perfect example of just how isolated and tranquil Iceland can be. In the summertime, it is possible (from the air) to see how the glacier is cracking and heaving under its own weight, creating strange and captivating patterns on the ice sheet.
Following your time at the glacier, you will fly over the 9000-year-old volcano, Skjaldbreiður, as well as over the continental plates of Þingvellir National Park, Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site.
So don't delay any longer? Make sure to book your seat on this dazzling helicopter ride to Langjökull glacier, flying over a wealth of gorgeous Icelandic scenery. Check availability by choosing a date.
This tour is weather dependent. The weather changes quickly in Iceland, so don't be caught unawares. It is always better to bring a sweater or dress in layers which you can remove if you are too warm.
