Geothermal Adventure Helicopter Tour

Turn up the heat with this short, yet incredible geothermal adventure, flying to the beautiful Mount Hengill by helicopter!

You will begin this one-hour tour by arriving at the staff offices at Hangar 6 by Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Here, you will be introduced to your friendly and highly experienced pilot, who in turn will run through the tour itinerary and show you Mount Hengill's destination on the map. The highest concern on this tour is guest safety and comfort, ensuring that you be flying in a perfectly maintained, modern helicopter. 

When everyone is ready, it's time to step out onto the tarmac and begin your expedition! Nothing can quite describe that feeling of adrenaline as the helicopter's rotors begin to stir overhead, and you will feel an enormous sense of freedom as your pilot lifts off into the open sky.

Mount Hengill is only a few miles east from Reykjavík, making the trip the geothermal area nice and short! On the way, you will experience a unique aerial perspective of the surrounding landscapes; table-top mountains, lava plateaus, the glimmering Atlantic. Your pilot will be sure to point out areas of interest throughout your flight. 

Finally, you will arrive at Mount Hengill and have your first chance to spot the powerful geothermal activity currently underway in the region. This is the one stop on this trip where the helicopter will land and you can explore the surrounding area on foot. Boiling hot pools permeate the landscape, and hot steam vents pour from the open ground. Your pilot will teach you about how Icelanders have harvested this incredible geothermal energy, pointing out the nearby geothermal plants. When the exploration is over, it will be time for a supremely peaceful flight back to Reykjavík.

So don't delay, and book today this brilliant helicopter tour to one of the most geothermally active mountains in the whole of Iceland! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
