Fire & Ice Helicopter Tour

Iceland is called the land of fire and ice – experience its nature’s extreme contrast by flying across the volcanic landscape to land atop a glacier! The journey to the glacier takes us over lava fields, craters, and colorful mountain ridges.

Ice

Once the lave fields are behind us, we enter the highlands with all their colors and glaciers. We land on Langjökull at an exclusive location, only accessible by helicopter. You can take a moment to breathe in the fresh mountain air, experience the complete silence, enjoy the magnificent view, and even make snow angels.You will see deep crevasses and steep ice falls that make an adventurous setting. There are no special effects like in a movie; this surreal setting is all real.

Fire

We peek into the crater of the majestic shield volcano Skjaldbreiður and fly over the tectonic rift separating America and Europe in the historic Thingvellir National Park.

We fly over geothermal hot springs and the largest geothermal power plant in the world. We land at a remote area to witness, smell, and feel the geothermal energy with bubbling mud pits and steaming hot surfaces.

Finally, our flight path concludes with a flight over Reykjavik to give us an aerial overview of the city.

Important informations

The total duration of the tour is 110-140 minutes, approx. 60-80 minute guided helicopter flight, a 15-minute landing on a glacier, and a 15-minute landing by a remote geothermal area on an old volcano.

After you complete the booking, we will inform you about the exact starting time for the tour. We will ask for additional information; if you can, kindly provide us your phone number, email, and approx. weight on each passenger.

Please note that this tour is weather dependent, and if the weather forecast is not promising at the time of your booked tour, we always try to:

A) change the time on the same day (e.g., go in the afternoon instead of the morning)

B) offer to go on a different date (e.g., the day before or the day after)

C) if we are fully booked and can not offer options A and B, we always give a full refund!

We recommend wearing good shoes, warm jackets, hats, and gloves. It does not get cold inside the helicopter (similar to sitting in a car), but it can get cold and windy on Icelandic mountaintops.
