Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach from Reykjavik or Akureyri

Reykjavík departures

In this tour we offer our guests to choose from 2 different departure points for their added comfort.

Departure from Reykjavik Base: 

This full day expedition of Iceland’s South coast is an adventure of a lifetime! On the way to the Glacier lagoons we head off the beaten track and into the southern highlands. We will take you over incredible landscapes, ferocious volcanoes, glaciers, glacial rivers and beautiful waterfalls that only a lucky
few get to see. Our pilot will guide you through the wilderness and tell you all about how Iceland has been shaped in this unique way by both fire and ice. 

Departure from Akureyri Base 

On the way to the Glacier lagoon we head towards the highlands and manage to view parts of Iceland rarely seen from air and ground
as well. We´ll explore Bárðarbunga and Lakagigar, Iceland´s most ferocious volcanoes, that have truly shaped our history and will continue to mettle
our little island as the years come and go. We fly over craters, some more active than other and explore and learn about the power that lies beneath. 

Before we get to the lagoons we fly on the edge of Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. As we approach the Glacier lagoon we can touch down, so you can explore the area and get a closer look at the floating clear blue icebergs that have broken off the glaciers edge. Here you get the chance to see the Diamond Beach!

It is a short walk down to the beach but worth it. 

The beach is filled with large icebergs that floated away and were stranded at land due to the strong currents around this area. After the Glacier lagoon visit, we make a stop where it is possible to enjoy some refreshments while we refuel the helicopter. On our way back to base we fly a different route to explore even more adventurous landscape and complete our day completely in awe of Icelandic nature such as Landmannalaugar, Thorsmork, Eyjafjallajokull and Haifoss to name a few.
