Your tour will begin with a rendezvous at Reykjavík Domestic Airport. There, you will make all the preparations for your trip, meet your experienced pilot, 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 duration of your incredible journey. 

When you are ready to begin your expedition to Hengill, you will rise high above Reykjavík, soaring over the colourful rooftops and city landmarks below you. You will then head east, passing over a vast plateau of dried lava and mountainscapes, all incredibly scenic given your 360-degree perspective of the surroundings.

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 with the two energy plants in the area.

When you are fully satisfied with your exploration, having taken numerous unforgettable photos, you will reboard the helicopter and head on back to the capital.
