DifficultyVery Easy

Spectacular helicopter tour that takes you over the infamous volcano Eyjafjallajökull and the surrounding volcanic lava fields and glaciers.

What to expect?

On our spectacular volcano tour we overfly Þórsmörk Nature Reserve and land on a volcanic crater on Fimmvörðuháls. We also fly above the infamous and now dormant Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano, whose eruption in 2010 became global news. From the top we head down its glacier tongue Gígjökull that was split in half by hot melting lava. If we're lucky we might even catch a glimpse of Iceland's most active volcano, Hekla, and the Westmann Islands. En route we will fly over the Hengill geothermal area and get a good look at power plants where geothermal heat is being harnessed to provide clean, sustainable energy.

What is included?

Guided helicopter tour which has a total time is about 2-2,5 hours with a landing on Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

What do I need to bring?

We recommend that you wear good shoes, warm jacket, a hat and gloves. It does cold not get cold inside the helicopter (similar to sitting in a car) but it can get cold and windy on Icelandic mountain tops.
