The tour begins at the Reyjavik Domestic Airport, a convenient starting point for travelers staying in the capital. Once you sign the appropriate forms and after you get some safety tips and reminders from your pilot, you’ll get strapped into your helicopter and take off. 

You’ll land on a mountain during this trip, so wear proper attire, including closed-toe shoes and warm, layered clothing. 

Once you take off from the airport, you’ll get your first bird’s-eye view of Reykjavik and its surrounding nature as you fly over the city. The city looks incredible as it dwindles, and the view transitions into the Icelandic countryside. 

As you head toward the mountains, have your camera out and ready for some of the most magnificent sights. You’ll travel over the countryside, rugged mountain valleys, waterfalls, and the lava fields left by ancient Icelandic volcanoes. 

The first leg of the journey depends on where you are landing for your mountaintop experience. Your expert pilot will decide where you will land, so rest assured you’ll visit the best ones. They monitor the weather forecast and decide on the best place, determined to make your mountaintop landing breathtaking. 

Once you land at the chosen mountaintop, you’ll have enough time to explore the area and get fantastic pictures of your surroundings. If you are lucky, you might land atop one of Iceland’s glaciers.

Moreover, whichever kind of terrain your pilot chooses, you’re sure to get beautiful panoramas of the country’s skyline and the mountains around you. 

After a few minutes on the mountain, it’s time to head back to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport. However, your flightseeing journey isn’t done yet, as you’ll have the chance to see a different perspective of the beautiful views you saw at the top of the mountain. 

As you fly back, your pilot will tell you interesting facts and highlight details about the surrounding area. All pilots are also trained guides, so don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions. 

After your sky journey, you’ll land at the airport and be back on solid land. You’ll also have the chance to take a photo beside the helicopter and your pilot if you choose to, or you can head back to the hotel.  

Your helicopter tour will last around 60 minutes, including taking off and landing. Aside from your landing location, your pilot will also decide the final departure time the day before your booked tour, depending on the weather conditions. 

Take note that your pilot can cancel the tour if they deem the weather unsafe. In this case, your operator can offer a tour rescheduling or a full refund.
