Tour description

The Fire and Ice tour is one of our most unique offers. It combines a few of our most popular tours and includes two landings: one on a glacier and one on a volcano!

Your adventure starts at Reykjavik Domestic Airport, where we head straight to the Þórisjökull glacier for our first landing. On the way, we’ll fly over Iceland’s highest waterfall, Glymur—saving you hours of hiking and offering a spectacular view from the sky. Upon reaching the glacier, you’ll have the chance to walk on it, snap some unforgettable photos, throw a snowball, make snow angels, or simply take in the breathtaking scenery and fresh, crisp air.

After our glacier adventure, we’ll head to Þingvellir National Park, a highlight of Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. Here, you’ll see the historic site of Iceland’s ancient parliament and the country’s largest natural lake. But the real highlight is witnessing the continental drift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, a phenomenon best viewed from above.

Our second landing on this tour takes us to the Hengill geothermal area, named after the Hengill volcano. This remote valley, typically accessible only by a long hike or helicopter, is home to hot springs and bubbling mud pots that you can get up close to. It’s a truly magical place, stunning in every season. 

Highlights of the tour include Þórisjökull Glacier, Glymur Waterfall, Þingvellir National Park, and the Hengill Geothermal Area—a journey of fire and ice you won’t soon forget!

Please note: After submitting 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.
