From Reykjavik we fly east along the dramatic south coast of Iceland. En route to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon we follow the never ending stretches of black lava sand beaches, past the famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and tumbling waterfalls. Once we reach the glacier lagoon we stop for 30-45 minutes to give you time for a boat ride (not included), ice berg exploration and seal watching.
As we head back on a westerly heading, we fly over the countless Vatnajokull glacier tongues, past the highest mountain peak of Iceland and to the remote and rugged Fjallabak nature reserve. You’ll see parts of the island that are hidden to all but a few and get access to highland lakes, braided rivers, glacier hewn valleys, towering mountains and majestic and primeval volcanic scenery. We’ll explore the colorful mountain ranges around Landmannalaugar geothermal area and Hraftinnusker before we fly past Hekla volcano en route back to Reykjavik city.
During the whole tour we make three landings. One is at the glacier lagoon but the other two depend on your own interest. Usually we land on Fimmvorduhals by Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and at Hraftinnusker geothermal area.
Included in the tour is a packed lunch. Your pilot will choose a scenic location to stop for a picnic.
Perhaps you would rather witness the glacier lagoon from the ground? Or head north to Myvatn in the helicopter? Check these two tours out:

Good to know before the tour:
Infants under 2 years of age fly for free, unless they occupy a separate seat. If you wish to book a separate seat for your infant, please book it here.
Hotel transfer is not included in the Glacier lagoon helicopter tour and you must make your own way to the helipad. We are located at Reykjavik domestic airport; Nauthólsvegur 58D right next to Icelandair Hotel Natura.
This tour is dependent upon good flying conditions, and may be cancelled if conditions are unfavorable. We are concerned about your safety.
