Join this memorable helicopter tour of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the black sand beaches of the South and everything in between. This is the perfect tour for those who want to get a bird's eye view of the beautiful Icelandic nature.

The tour starts off in the capital city Reykjavík, where you will board your aircraft. Shortly after that, you'll be soaring through the air over the diverse dramatic landscape of the whole South Coast of Iceland. 

As you fly to the majestic glacier lagoon, you will pass the endless stretches of black lava sand beaches, river deltas, glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls and other jaw-dropping sights.

Along the way, the helicopter will land twice at scenic locations. The site of these locations differs each time and is based on your preferences and the pilot's expert recommendation. You will be able to have lunch, which is provided, at one of the stops. Your pilot knows all the best places for a wonderful picnic.

You will then land at the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you can see enormous icebergs that have broken off a nearby glacier tongue drift peacefully on the icy blue lagoon. 

As you head back from one of Europe‘s largest glaciers, Vatnajökull, and it‘s countless glacier tongues, you'll be taken into the barren highlands of Iceland. This is the geologist‘s paradise where Mother Nature shows off her fascinating formations. 

Majestic and primaeval volcanic scenery with towering mountains, canyons, lakes, valleys, waterfalls, and craters will greet you in the highlands. The contrast of the black volcanic sands, the geothermal colours and the glacier ice in the rugged, remote areas of the highlands will surely be a sight to remember. 

Once you've seen the whole South Coast as well as the highlands from above, it is time to head back to Reykjavík with a head full of memories and a heart filled with joy.
