General Information

Get ready for one of the most incredible experiences in Iceland! Our Helicopter glacier hike tour is full of natural beauty, glaciers and mountain tops.

The tour starts at Skaftafell Terminal next to Skaftafell national park. The helicopter will take you on a fly over one of Vatnajökull´s outlet glaciers: Enjoy a bird's eye view of one of the most spectacular sceneries Iceland has to offer and marvel at the glacier as it winds slowly down the carved valleys from its origin in the mountains high above you.

We will land on the glacier itself and prepare for a hike on the 1.000 year old ice. Equipped with glacier gear, we hike on the glacier for about 1 hour, soaking up the incredible alpine atmosphere. A truly unforgettable adventure in an untouched glacier wonderland!
