Iceland's dramatic terrain is all the more visible from above when participating in a helicopter tour.
The Almannagjá Fissure is where the meeting of the two tectonic plates is clearly visible in the earth's surface, in Þingvellir National Park in Iceland.
When flying above South Iceland in a helicopter, one can feel like they're the only person in the world.

Experience the Golden Circle from a whole new angle, where you'll fly on a helicopter to each destination, with added landings at Langjökull glacier and Mount Hengill. This tour is ideal for those wishing to experience the landscapes of Iceland from the best possible perspectives.

Your journey begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City and brought to Reykjavík Domestic Airport on the edge of downtown. Once there, you will meet your experienced local pilot guide, who will introduce you and the rest of your small group to the aircraft, the day's itinerary and flight-seeing route on the map.

The Golden Circle route is Iceland's most famous and popular sightseeing excursion, consisting of a round trip that encompasses the mighty waterfall Gullfoss, the geothermal hot springs of Geysir and the stunning Þingvellir National Park.

In a helicopter, however, you can marvel over these beloved attractions from a bird's eye point of view, a unique privilege not experienced by many. See with your own eyes how the continental rift is pulling the earth apart when flying over the great Almannagjá Gorge. 

Get ready to bypass the tour buses on the roads below and access each touchdown with total ease. Then, if weather conditions allow, you will have an added touchdown on top of the magnificent glacier Langjökull, as well as visiting the geothermal hot pools at Hengill Volcano. 

You will be overcome with the sense of freedom a helicopter flight brings, viewing each destination as an extensive panorama. You will definitely want to bring your camera for this trip, for all the incredible photo opportunities of your journey through the skies.
