Take an exhilarating scenic helicopter ride over Europe’s biggest glacier and get spellbound by the sparkling crystal blue colors of our secret glacier ice cave.
On arrival at Skaftafell Terminal we’ll be ready to greet you at our reception, your pilot and professional glacier guide will then go over the flight route and perform a safety briefing before we head out to the helicopter.
We then embark on an exhilarating scenic helicopter ride from our airfield over the sprawling glacier, so you can get to know it from above before seeing it from the inside. No need for a grueling hike to reach the glacier, simply sit back in comfort and take in the stunning views as the helicopter does the work. Our destination is Skeiðarárjökull glacier, part of Europe’s biggest glacier Vatnajökull. Upon landing, we will deboard and take a short walk from our landing spot to the mouth of our secret glacier ice cave.
The cave opening leads us into the glacier tunnel, where we can easily stand upright as your guide takes you further along the frozen corridor. The sparkling crystalline colors of sapphire blue are embossed with vivid shapes and patterns which look like icy scales. The serenity and sense of wonder while being inside the glacier is something hard to describe in words, although we’re trying our best. Once the ice cave expedition is over, the helicopter will bring you back to Skaftafell Terminal.
