Hop on board for a thrilling flight over West Iceland. This tour combines two once-in-a-lifetime experiences; the opportunity to soar above this beautiful land, and the opportunity to explore the inside of a glacier.

You meet up with your pilot guide and depart from the domestic airport in Reykjavík. The 60-minute flight component of this tour will take you over a whole host of different landscapes, each of which will blow you away.

See where the North American and Eurasian continental plates are pulling apart in Þingvellir National Park; watch columns of steam rising from hot springs in the Hengill geothermal area; spot Iceland's tallest waterfall, Glymur, cascading down a cliff; and soar over Þórisjökull and Langjökull glaciers.

All of these places are marvellous to visit, but to get to see them from an aerial perspective is truly spectacular, and an experience few get to have. 

The pilot will eventually land in the picturesque Húsafell, where you will start the second component of the tour. From here, you will travel up to Langjökull glacier, and explore its insides with an expert glacier guide.

This experience is nothing short of incredible; you will walk down channels carved into millennia-old ice, where you can marvel over its beautiful blue colour and the fantastic natural sculptures it forms.

As you look and listen, you will learn the secrets of the glaciers, and the forces that have shaped Iceland into the magnificent country that it is. This is the only place in the world you can enter a glacier in this manner without being a scientist, and it is not an adventure that should be missed.

Following the Langjökull tour, you will hop back into the plane for a sightseeing return journey back to Reykjavik Domestic Airport. The location of this airport could not be more convenient; it is just a five-minute drive from the city centre.
