Departing from Reykjavik Domestic Airport, this tour is a fantastic way to see the Capital Region from another angle. The Reykjavik Airport is not to be confused with the Keflavik International Airport, which is likely where you landed when you first arrived in Iceland, as the Reykjavik Airport is only a few minutes outside the downtown area.
After boarding the helicopter, donning your gear, and having a quick safety briefing, it is time to take off. Your pilot will choose your exact route, which depends heavily on the weather conditions that day, but you can expect fantastic aerial views of Iceland’s top attractions.
You can see expansive lava fields, rugged mountains, and remote villages as you fly. During this one-hour tour, your pilot will make a landing on one of the nearby mountaintops to give you a chance to take unbeatable photographs.
Your pilot will take you on the best route to see the most impressive sights. Be sure to look closely as you take off and land in Reykjavik, and you will see remarkable landmarks, such as the Hallgrimskirkja church.
Weather conditions are everything when it comes to helicopter tours in Iceland. Safely flying a helicopter requires calm weather with good visibility, and Iceland’s notoriety for unpredictable weather means your pilot will keep a close eye on conditions before takeoff.
If your tour is canceled due to weather, the operator will help you reschedule for another day or offer a full refund. To give yourself the best chance of experiencing the rush of a helicopter tour, book for a day early in your trip so that if it must be rescheduled, you have time to make the change.
It can be pretty chilly in the air and during your mountaintop landing, so dress in warm, waterproof layers. Wear comfortable closed-toe shoes, and don’t forget your gloves and camera!
