Reykjavik City Helicopter Tour

Explore Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, from an entirely fresh perspective, flying high above the city on this fantastic flight-seeing tour!

Your trip will begin at the tour office, Hangar 6. This is found just south of Reykjavík Domestic Airport. This is where you will meet your pilot/guide for the day, a highly trained and experienced professional with an incredible, in-depth knowledge of the city of Reykjavík. They will show you the flight path on a map and talk a little about the modern helicopter that you will be flying in.

Nothing can describe the sensation of waiting on the runway as the rotors' begin to spin overhead. The exhilaration and the sense of freedom that comes with suddenly taking off can barely be described. The airport will disappear below you, the dome of the Perlan restaurant rushing past the window.

Soon, you'll have a full view of the city, the dried lava plateaus that surround it and the tabletop mountains that serve as Reykjavík's ever present backdrop. Your pilot will teach you along the way about the city's history and culture, as well as pointing out some iconic landmarks. You will see the Hallgrímskirkja church, the modern concert hall, Harpa and the colourful corrugated rooftops of Old Town. On the outside of the city, you will see the landmark cone-shaped mountain, Keilir and Bláfjöll, the Blue Moutain range.

At added cost, guests can also choose to land on the omnipresent Mount Esja. Landing here truly provides some stunning vistas of the surrounding area. Looking out from the mountain's tabletop summit, it's a strange feeling knowing the small city below holds two-thirds of the entire country's population. 

Grab your opportunity to see the worlds' northern-most capital from this unique aerial perspective, flying all over the city on this amazing helicopter tour! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
