Description

On this stunning 30 minute air tour we explore the many outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. Among its dozens of glacier tongues are Skaftafellsjökull, Skeiðarárjökull and Svínafellsjökull to name but a few. 

Upon arrival at Skaftafell Terminal please check in at our reception. You will then meet with your pilot that will go over the flight route and perform a safety briefing before heading out to the helicopter.  

Our first destination is our namesake Skaftafellsjökull glacier, taking us into a narrow valley with vivid colors before we climb up the steep glacier edge to Mount Hrútsfjall (1800m). Don’t worry, it’s the aircraft which will be doing the climbing. Next up is Svínafellsjökull glacier, which looks so out of this world that it was fittingly used as the shooting location for an alien ice planet in the 2014 blockbuster Interstellar. From there we continue gliding, freely observing Virkisjökull, Falljökull, Korárjökull and Öræfajökull with a bird’s eye view (yes, “jökull” means “glacier” in case you hadn’t figured that out yet). 

On our way back to base we do a lower altitude flight over cliffs, canyons, and waterfalls to round out a truly breathtaking tour. Upon landing back at Skaftafell Terminal, we hope you got the chance to snap some nice photos and get a glimpse of the magical and diverse landscapes the area has to offer.
