Glacier Express

Direct glacier touchdown


For those of you who just can’t wait to set foot on a glacier. This is the one for you!

Starting from Reykjavik airport we head straight to Glymur. Glymur is the highest waterfall here in Iceland. After that we head to the second largest glacier in Europe, Langjökull. There we will endeavor to land and experience the Icelandic glacier.. Langjökull is one of Iceland’s visible remains of the last Ice age. In summertime you will see cracks and crevices in the glacier formed by its crawling outwards from under its own weight. On the way back we will pass the 9000 year old volcano Skjaldbreiður that has the rare shape of a shield hardly seen elsewhere in the world. We will fly along the magnificent Continental rift and over Þingvellir national park where you will hear about its important part to play in Icelandic history.

Glacier landings are only made when deemed safe by our pilots and are determined by factors such as weather and glacier surface conditions. For your safety, HELO reserves the right to alter routes, flight plans and itineraries if needed.
