As part of Iceland’s largest helicopter service, your experienced pilot has excellent terrain knowledge and will be happy to point out the landmarks below. The company is well-known for its high operational standards and outstanding customer service.

For 30 to 45 minutes, you’ll enjoy a birdseye view of Reykjavik’s tiny houses, the picturesque mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean stretched below you. Your flight includes a summit landing on a nearby mountaintop where you can breathe in the fresh air, take photos, and enjoy panoramic views of the city.

After returning to Reykjavik airport, you can spend the day in the city as you wish. You could enjoy delicious food at one of the many vibrant city cafes or restaurants and relax at the Sundhollin public swimming baths. Check out the famous Hallgrimskirkja church or visit one of the many city museums if you wish.

When it gets dark, you’ll make your way to Reykjavik Harbor for the second part of your tour. Dress warmly for the boat trip, where you will have the chance to spot the aurora borealis lighting up the winter night sky.

Overalls are available on the boat to ensure you’re warm and cozy. You can rest assured knowing the boat features a cafe, souvenir shop, toilets, and complimentary Wi-Fi for a comfortable onboard experience.

You’ll sail away from the city lights for the best opportunity to see the starry sky light up in splashes of color. Seeing the northern lights is high on the bucket list for any traveler to Iceland during wintertime, so you will not want to miss this trip.

After a delightful excursion sailing across the water, you’ll return to Reykjavik harbor. Now it’s the end of the tour, and you can spend your evening at your leisure. Head home for an early night or have fun at your choice of restaurant, pub, or bar for the evening.
