We’ll meet up at one of our helicopter bases and climb aboard the helicopter – climbing high into the air and making straight for Vatnajökull Glacier.

Vatnajokull Glacier

Vatnajokull is the largest glacier in Europe sprawling over a massive 8100 sq.km. It is especially impressive from the air thanks to its many outlet glaciers, which unfurl like icy carpets from the main body of the glacier. It overlooks Vatnajokull National Park – a stunningly beautiful and diverse landscape populated by glacier lagoons, snowy mountains, volcanic craters and much, much more.

Fjallsárlón and Jökulsárlón

The Fjallsarlon and Jokulsarlon are the most famous glacier lagoons in Iceland. Jokulsarlon sits in the shadow of the Breidamerkurjokull Glacier and is known for the glistening icebergs that float across it on their way to the Atlantic Ocean. We’ll also enjoy an aerial view of the aptly named Diamond Beach, where many of the icebergs lie like jewels in the dark volcanic sands.

Graenalon

The helicopter will land in Graenalon (the green lagoon) – a former glacier lake that has dramatically reduced in size. However, that has only enhanced its beauty with the electric blue pool of water offering a stark contrast to the dark volcanic landscape that surrounds it.  

Oraefajokull volcano and Mt. Hvannadalshnjukur

Our route home will take us over the Oraefajokull volcano, which houses Mt. Hvannadalshnjukur – Iceland’s tallest mountain, which rises 2110 meters above the volcano. The perfect way to end an exhilarating helicopter tour that will have given you an aerial view of the land of fire and ice.
