Hop aboard for a spectacular journey through the sky, from Reykjavík to one of Iceland’s incredible glaciers. This helicopter tour should not be missed by any seeking adrenaline and awe-inspiring views of this country’s nature.

You will find your helicopter and experienced pilot by Reykjavík’s Domestic Airport; after a quick briefing on your plans, you’ll jump into the chopper, put your earphones on, and take to the skies.

The feeling of liberation and excitement as Reykjavík shrinks beneath you is unmatched. Seeing the classic sites of the city, as well as its many parks and colourful tin roofs, from such a height is spectacular, to say nothing of the surrounding nature of sparkling seascapes and tabletop mountains.

You will not linger too long over the city, however; your destination for the day is the incredible and little visited Þórisjökull glacier. Once you reach this majestic place, the helicopter will make a smooth landing on its surface, and you can disembark.

The ice cap boasts spectacular snowscapes, with plunging crevasses and steep icefalls, as well as unmatched vistas of the surrounding nature. You can use your time here to enjoy the pristine alpine air, fill your camera’s memory card with unforgettable photographs, and to play around in the ice and snow.

After making the most of your time on the glacier, you will return to the helicopter and take to the skies once more. Your journey is far from over, however. You will head in the direction of Þingvellir National Park, where you can see the continental rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. You will also dip over the shield volcano Skjaldbreið to see within its crater.

You will follow the rift valley back along Iceland’s beautiful south until returning to Reykjavík. After an incredible, adrenaline pumping sightseeing trip, you will land back at the Domestic Airport.

So what's the delay? Lift off on this thrilling helicopter tour and visit one of Iceland’s incredible glaciers in a truly unique way. Check availability by choosing a date.
