Enjoy Iceland’s fascinating geothermal sights from the sky with this unique and exhilarating helicopter tour. If you are intrigued by Iceland’s mysterious subterranean forces, its spectacular nature, and if you love adventure, this excursion should not be missed.
You will meet your friendly, experienced pilot and guide by Reykjavík’s Domestic Airport, who will outline your itinerary when in the air; following that, you will be led to the helicopter, hop in, and prepare for take-off.
Watching the colourful tin roofs and iconic sites of Reykjavík shrink beneath you is a magical and awe-inspiring experience. You will enjoy the spectacular cityscapes with views of Hallgrímskirkja Church and Harpa Concert Hall before soaring off to the Hengill region, a place of raw lava fields, steaming hot springs and vents, beautifully coloured mountains, power plants and ominous craters.
At one of the many geothermal areas, you will make a landing and disembark; you can be guaranteed that there will be no other soul in sight, other than the people who joined you on the helicopter. Here, you can enjoy stunning vistas, witness the tumultuous forces at work beneath the surface of the earth, and take as many photos as your camera can hold.
Once you have soaked up the beauty of the area, you will hop back into the helicopter and take to the skies once more. Your pilot will make sure you take a spectacular return route, over the incredible mountains, valleys and lava fields of Iceland’s south-west, before heading back to the capital.
After a few more cityscape views, you will land back at the Domestic Airport. No doubt, the past hour will stand out as one of the highlights of your holiday to Iceland, and the memories you made and photos you took will last for life.
