Description

Marvel at Iceland’s awe-inspiring landscape and fly over volcanoes, glaciers and geysers on this 2 hour helicopter flight from Reykjavik. Be amazed as you soar through the skies and enjoy bird’s-eye views of the city. Pass over the Thórsmörk mountain ridge and descend to a scenic spot to see the landscape up close, too. Climb to Eyjafjallajökull’s summit and peek inside its crater, before returning to Reykjavik by way of black sand beaches and the Blue Mountain range.

Make your own way to Reykjavik Domestic Airport, listen to a short safety briefing before following your professional pilot to your helicopter. Take a seat next to your pilot or in the row of seats to the rear, and feel the excitement build as you take off into the skies over Reykjavik.

Peer down at the capital’s sights and watch as the vibrant rooftops that typify Reykjavik give way to the rugged beauty of the ethereal Icelandic landscape. Head toward the Hengill geothermal area, one of the largest areas of its kind in Iceland, and take in bird’s-eye views of the steaming hot springs — known as geysers — and power plants.

Pass over the Thórsmörk mountain ridge. One of the area’s most scenic spots, Thórsmörk is surrounded by glaciers, mountains and rivers and bordered by the towering Mýrdalsjökull, Eyjafjallajökull and Tindfjallajökull glaciers. Marvel at the sweeping views and then begin your descent to a landing spot between Eyjafjallajökull and Katla volcano. Step out of your helicopter and stretch your legs as you wander around, taking in the inspiring views.

Hop back inside your helicopter and enjoy your scenic route back to the city. Soar over the black sand beaches on Iceland’s south coast before crossing the Blue Mountain range and taking in your final aerial views of Reykjavik. Your 2.5-hour tour concludes back at the original start point.
