Reykjavik City Helicopter Tour with Mountain Top Landing

Break out of the city limits with this thrilling helicopter sightseeing tour over the northern-most capital in the world, Reykjavík!

Your trip will begin just beside Reykjavík Domestic Airport, at the tour offices, Hangar 6. You will meet your highly experienced and trained pilot, a professional with an enormous knowledge of the city. He will introduce you to the modern helicopter you will be flying in, regularly maintained to ensure your enjoyment, comfort and security throughout the duration of your flight. Your pilot will also show you on a map the proposed route and landing stop at Mount Esja.

Flying high over the urban landscape, you will be able to get a real insight into the character and culture of both Reykjavík and the people who call it home. The red, blue and green rooftops of Old Town create a kaleidoscopic effect against the wide open backdrop of the drive lava plateaus surrounding the city. The mountains, both the tabletop summit of Mount Esja and, to the east, Bláfjöll ("The Blue Mountains"), stand tall, proud and strikingly beautiful from the window of a helicopter. 

Your pilot will be eager to share with you all of his knowledge about the city and surrounding areas. He will point out the easily recognisable Hallgrímskirkja church, the dome-shaped rooftop of Perlan, the glassy and modern concert hall, Harpa. This is the perfect opportunity to grab some unique photographs of these landmarks. 

Finally, you will begin the short journey to Mount Esja. When you reach the summit, the pilot will effortlessly land the helicopter and allow everyone to get out and enjoy the magnificent views. You will be able to see the Reykjanes coastline, the wide Atlantic ocean and the close mountain range extending onward to the horizon.

This is the only way to really see the city! Hurry now and grab your chance to see all of the charm and beauty of Reykjavík from high up in the air! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
