Tour description

Get ready for one of the most incredible experiences in Iceland! Our Heli Glacier Hike tour is packed with stunning natural beauty, glaciers, and mountain tops.

The adventure kicks off at Skaftafell Terminal, right next to Skaftafell National Park. From there, you’ll take a thrilling helicopter flight over one of Vatnajökull’s outlet glaciers. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of some of Iceland’s most spectacular scenery and marvel at the glacier as it winds down the carved valleys from its high mountain origins.

We’ll land right on the glacier itself, where we’ll gear up for a hike on 1,000-year-old ice. For about an hour, we’ll trek across the glacier, soaking in the incredible alpine atmosphere. It’s a truly unforgettable adventure in a pristine glacier wonderland!
