Description

Take to the sky by helicopter and explore Europe's largest glacier from above.
Vatnajökull glacier is a vast ice cap enveloping approximately 12 % of Iceland's land mass, and it has a vast amount of outlet glaciers. We'll take you on a helicopter tour over the glacier to show you some of these incredible glacier tongues.

We will take off from our very own airfield at Skaftafell Terminal - Tour Center, and just a few moments after takeoff we'll have already seen the fearsome Öræfajökull glacier rise ahead of us. Our journey heads through Vatnajökull National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there we head on to our neighbouring Skaftafellsjökull glacier, soaring over its steep cliffs and surrounding gorgeous valleys. Skeidarárjökull glacier is next on our agenda, as we marvel over its abstract icy patterns. Our journey continues over such glaciers as Kotárjökull, Virkisjökull and Falljökull. The crevasses, ridges and peaks of the glaciers make the landscape come alive, a wonderland of cliffs, canyons and even some waterfalls.

Join us on this unforgettable scenic helicopter tour.

Examples of possible sights: Skaftafellsjökull, Hrútsfjall, Svínafellsjökull, Virkisjökull, Falljökull, Kotárjökull, Öræfajökull, Kvíarjökull.
