Visit all of the most popular destinations of the Golden Circle via helicopter, flying over waterfalls, lava plateaus and geothermal hot springs. This private excursion is perfect for those wishing to experience Iceland's landscapes like never before. 

Your adventure begins with a pickup in Reykjavík City, where you will be brought to Reykjavík Domestic Airport, close to the city centre. You will then meet your experienced local guide and pilot for the day, who will run you through the flight route and show you the touchdowns on the map. 

You will also be introduced to your aircraft, but all the helicopters used are routinely checked and maintained and boast the most modern equipment, guarding your safety, enjoyment and comfort throughout your excursion. 

Most visitors to Iceland have at least heard of The Golden Circle, Iceland's most popular sightseeing route. The tour will usually consist of driving from Reykjavik to the continental rift valley Þingvellir National Park, taking a passing visit to the waterfall Gullfoss and finally, stopping at the geothermal hot spring area of Geysir. 

However, flying high above these incredible sights in a helicopter brings an entirely new angle to the tour, as you will be able to bypass the tour buses on the roads and gain a unique, aerial perspective of these celebrated attractions.

As an added extra to this already incredible tour, if conditions allow, there will be an added landing on top of Langjökull Glacier, a magnificent ice cap and part of the Icelandic Highlands. This stop will immediately justify itself in the sweeping panoramas all around you, as well as giving you the feeling of conquering a massive glacier with ease.

You can also add another landing at the geothermal areas of the volcano Hengill, where you will see the bubbling mud pools, red and yellow soil and steaming volcanic vents. Whatever you do, don't forget to bring your camera along for all the amazing photo opportunities.

Don't hesitate to book today and cement your place on this high-flying take on the popular Golden Circle route, to see the best of Iceland from above. Check availability by choosing a date.
