Beautiful Combination of Helicopter Sightseeing and Ice Cave Exploring
This is a great trip to be out of the crowds in some of the most stunning ice caves of Vatnajökull. Since the ice cave location we go to on this trip is quite far up in the mountains and would require many hours of hiking to reach we are usually alone up there while in the ice caves. And since the helicopter takes max 5 clients each time plus guide there will not be big crowd in the cave at any time.
For this trip we meet at the Skaftafell Terminal and the helicopter takes us up to a remote valley next to Skeiðarárjökull glacier. There we land close to the ice caves and spend an hour exploring them. The flight time is not long and the ice caves are just couple of hundreds of meters away from the landing spot so bigger part of the trip will be spent inside the ice caves.
If you are serious photographer and are looking for a longer stop at the ice caves there, you can check out the Helicopter Ice Cave Tour of FromCoastToMountains.
