My recent helicopter tour with Atlantsflug from Skaftafell, Iceland, was an absolute thrill that left me awe-inspired. From start to finish, it was a seamless experience that exceeded all my expectations. The moment we took off, I knew I was in for a treat. The stunning landscapes of Iceland unfolded beneath us like a mesmerizing tapestry of ice-capped peaks, sweeping glaciers, and lush valleys. The sheer beauty of Skaftafell from above is an unparalleled sight that words fail to describe adequately. The skilled and knowledgeable pilot from Atlantsflug added an extra layer of excitement to the journey. Their expert commentary provided fascinating insights into the region's geological wonders, creating a richer and more immersive experience. As we soared over Vatnajökull National Park, the feeling of freedom and exhilaration was unmatched. The unique vantage point from the helicopter allowed us to witness natural wonders that can only be accessed by air, making it an exclusive adventure. Every moment of the tour was captured by the attentive staff, ensuring I could relive those remarkable moments even after the flight. The entire team's passion for their work and dedication to safety made me feel at ease throughout the journey.

You'll be left in awe of the breathtaking beauty and grandeur that Skaftafell has to offer from the skies.


We do recommend to book the Ultimate Skaftafell Airplane Tour with the company Atlantsflug. It was one of the best experience in our lives!!! It is impossible to describe how amazing and beautiful Iceland is from the airplane. During 1,5 hour we saw a big area including glaciers, lakes, mountains etc. Our pilot was very friendly and he shared a lot of interesting information with us during the trip. If we have a chance to repeat this activity, we will definitely do it! It is worth it!


Excellent Experience would recommend to anyone. No Pictures can ever show you how amazing the views are from above such a beautiful country. Our kids said this is the highlight of their trip! And there were a lot of amazing places The staff and pilot were excellent and very accommodating and would highly recommend using them if you want to see Skaftafell and the Largest glacier in Iceland


Great flight for first time fliers. Good explanation of the terrain we were flying over. Friendly and hospitable,well worth the cost.


This was an incredible way to see more of the landscape than what most people are able to see. We flew over Glaciers, Volcanoes, Glacial lagoons and so much more. The pilot was very good and knowledgeable about the areas we were flying over.


You need to be a little flexible with respect to time, as they may need to adjust for weather/people. We booked a 10:30 in Skaftafell but we were asked if we could move later to 12:30 so there would be a full flight. We were happy to oblige, since we were driving out from Reykjavik (4 hour drive). There is a lot to do on the way - beaches and numerous waterfalls. There were some clouds over Landmannalaugar, so our pilot asked for our approval of a slightly different flight plan and we flew over some other areas (Jokulsarlon). Flight time was also extended 15 min as an extra treat. The flight was extremely smooth and our pilot was experienced, knowledgeable and conscientious. I am an anxious flyer and he would let us know when we were going to get a little turbulence and I was able to mentally prepare. The views are gorgeous. I never thought we would see so many different types of terrain. Some of it looked alien! It was the best sightseeing tour I've ever taken, and we have so many fantastic photos.

Our wonderful pilot, Kai, and nimble helicopter maximized this magical experience! One of many highlights.


It was amazing. You don't get to see these kind of views from the ground.. The flight took us over the Vatnajokull and to Landmanalaugar. I won't forget this wonderful trip. Tank you! Highly recommended


Sublime (of such excellence, grandeur, or beauty as to inspire great admiration or awe). I haven't used that word to describe anything in my life and this experience deserves the title. I took this flight on my fifth trip to Iceland and it brought an entirely new dimension to the island and all of it's raw rugged beauty. The staff was fantastic and the flight itself was life-changing. The experience was magnificent in every way and I recommend it very highly.


We wanted to see Highland in wintertime, and took two flights in different days with Stefan Arnason. The views we saw and the flights were fantastic! Thank you Stefan! Andrey Fiord
