Geothermal Adventure Helicopter Tour (Private)

Discover for yourself the hottest tour in Iceland - helicopter flight-seeing over the volcanic mountain, Hengill, and the geothermal area that surrounds it! This is the private alternative to the Geothermal Adventure helicopter tour and is the perfect choice for those looking for a more personalised and individual experience. 

Your tour will begin at the rendezvous point, Hangar 6. This is the tour office, found just beside Reykjavík Domestic Airport.  This is where you will make all the preparations for your trip; you will meet your group and experienced pilot/guide, discover your route on the map and learn a little something about the helicopter you will be flying in.

The entire fleet of helicopters are modern models and routinely maintained, guaranteeing safety, comfort and adventure throughout the tour's duration. 

When you are ready to begin your expedition to Hengill, you will rise high above the city of Reykjavík, leaving the coloured rooftops and landmarks below you. You will fly east, passing over a large plateau of dried lava and mountain scapes, all immensely enjoyable given your 360-degree perspective of the surroundings. Whatever you do, don't forget your camera!

When you arrive at Mount Hengill, your pilot will land the helicopter, giving you the opportunity to explore the surrounding area on foot. You will immediately be struck by the red, yellow and green soil, the bubbling mud pools and the steaming volcanic vents. Here, you will learn about how Icelanders have harvested this geothermal power by building two energy plants in the area.

When you are fully satisfied with your exploration, you will reboard the helicopter for your easy journey back to Reykjavík. Overall, the tour will last for approximately 1 hour.

Don't be left out in the cold! Book now so you too can experience the geothermal wonder of Mount Hengill, and make holiday memories to last! Check availability by choosing a date.
