Description

Discover Iceland’s famous film locations with this awe-inspiring helicopter flight, including two landings. Cinema buffs keen to marvel at spectacular landscapes from their favorite films should book this unbeatable tour now.

Your exciting adventure begins at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport, just a short distance from the city center. Here, you’ll greet your expert pilot-guide before embarking on an unforgettable flight.

This comprehensive excursion lasts between 3.5 and 4 hours. It includes a two-hour guided flight and two 15-minute landings. The focus is on breathtaking landscapes featured in films like The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and television series like Game of Thrones.

First, you’ll depart Reykjavik and enjoy an excellent view of the city and its coastline. Ensure your camera is ready to capture shots of today’s unique vistas for lasting memories.

The helicopter company has participated in several film projects. As you fly, your guide will share fascinating insights about their aerial shooting projects, giving you a behind-the-scenes look at these renowned locations.

Follow The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to the Hellisheidi plateau and the Hengill geothermal area. The latter is also featured in the Game of Thrones series, for example, during the fight between Brienne of Tarth and the Hound.

Next, you’ll fly over Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of three Golden Circle attractions. From above, witness the separating North American and Eurasian tectonic plates and see if you can spot the Bloody Gate from Game of Thrones.

Your pilot will continue to the Jarlhettur mountain peak, passing stunning waterfalls. Jarlhettur is your first landing, where you can enjoy panoramic volcanic views and fantastic photo opportunities.

Then, you’ll fly over the other two Golden Circle attractions, the Geysir geothermal area and the Gullfoss waterfall. Your overhead perspective offers vistas inaccessible to most travelers, so enjoy every minute of flying above these incredible natural wonders.

The flight continues towards the Icelandic Highlands, first heading over the magnificent Laxargljufur canyon, where John Snow flies with the dragons. 

You’ll also see the Domadalur valley in the Southern Icelandic Highlands. This otherworldly landscape has been featured in several films, including Prometheus, Oblivion, and Noah, so you can let your imagination run wild as you remember scenes from these movies.

Next, you’ll visit the Thorsmork nature reserve, the location for today’s second landing. This gorgeous reserve features in Star Wars. It’s home to lush greenery and winding rivers surrounded by jagged green and black mountain peaks, a setting that feels like a fairytale.

For the tour’s final stretch, you’ll fly along the breathtaking South Coast, checking out its trademark waterfalls and black-sand beaches before flying over the lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula. Here, you’ll see landscapes from Flags of our Fathers and Noah.

Afterward, you’ll fly back to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport, where the tour finishes.
