The combination of volcano landscapes, ice, and hot springs creates the magic of this tour. It starts with a stunning view of the Askja caldera, followed by a direct journey to Kverkfjöll, the highest point of Vatnajökull in the north. Kverkfjöll is a hidden pearl of the highlands, boasting abundant activity, contrasts, and colors that should not be left unseen during a visit to Iceland. Along this route, the powerful forces of nature in Vatnajökull meet hot and cold in perfect harmony.
The helicopter flies over Hveradalur valley, one of Iceland’s most powerful geothermal areas, nestled amidst glacial ice at an altitude of 1800 meters. Under favorable conditions, the helicopter can venture through the gap of Kverkfjöll, allowing an up-close encounter with the Kverkjökull glacier tongue and its countless cracks. Not to be overlooked is the awe-inspiring sight of the glacial river flowing over the black sand far below. Before returning to the farm, a stopover is made at the remote Arnardalsfoss waterfall—a serene and refreshing spot. Finally, the tour concludes with a flight over the artistic Kettle holes of Möðrudalur.
