About Heli Tour Into The Glacier

This tour is really a once in a life time unique experience! To fly free like a bird over the land of fire and ice, landing on the glacier and exploring it from the INSIDE is as magical as it sounds.

On the way from Reykjavik to Langjokull glacier the chopper lands in the beautiful hot spring area of Volcano Hengill, which is an important source of geothermal energy for the south of Iceland. We then fly over Thingvellir National Park and very clearly see the division between the two tectonic plates. Skjaldbreidur volcano, is also another impressive landmark of this tour, featuring a perfect conic shape and crater.

As we approach Langjokull glacier we start to notice deep crevasses and steep ice falls. It is an amazing opportunity to get to view the glacier from above, making us feel like having arrived back to Ice Age! We land on top of Langjokull by the ice tunnels and the glacier‘s raw and primitive forces take over. How small one can feel against mother nature. We go Into The Glacier and explore its interior and surreal beauty the glacier hides inside. If the weather doesn‘t allow landing on the glacier, specially modified glacier vehicles will take you safe and surely on the top of the glacier to the ice tunnels, the drive takes about half an hour and is guided with experienced English speaking guides.
