Explore Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, from an entirely fresh perspective, flying high above the city on this fantastic flight-seeing tour. Anyone looking for a unique experience in Iceland should book this affordable helicopter adventure now. 

Your journey will begin at Reykjavík Domestic Airport, where you will meet your pilot and 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 highly modern aircraft that you will be flying in.

Nothing can describe the sensation of buckling up in the chopper and 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 as you begin your flight, the dome of city landmark Perlan 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 about the city's history and culture, as well as pointing out to you all the iconic landmarks.

Prepare for a stunning view of Hallgrímskirkja Church, the monumental concert hall Harpa and the colourful corrugated rooftops of the city centre. Once you have reached city limits, you will gain a bird's eye view of the cone-shaped mountain Keilir, as well as Bláfjöll the blue mountain range.

After having circled the mountains that shield the capital, you will begin making your way back to Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Looking out from your chopper, 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 in a state-of-the-art helicopter. Check availability by choosing a date.
