Own your surroundings with this fantastic private helicopter flight over the charming city of Reykjavik, with an added landing on its skyline tower Mount Esja. If you wish to see Reykjavík from above on a personalised flight-seeing adventure, this is the tour for you.

You begin by making your way to Reykjavík Domestic Airport, located only a short distance from the city centre. Here, you will meet your highly trained, experienced and friendly pilot, who will take the time to run through the tour itinerary and show you the route on a map.

Your pilot guide will also give a rundown on the helicopter, one of many in a well maintained and extremely modern fleet, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the tour. Once these procedures are done, and you are feeling ready and excited,  you will board the aircraft and take off over the northern-most capital in the world!

You will be able to pick out such local landmarks as the modern Harpa concert hall, the iconic Hallgrímskirkja Church and even the glass dome of Perlan. You'll quickly realise this is the only way to really appreciate the undeniable charm of Reykjavik. Your guide knows the city like the back of their hand and will happily inform you of the history and culture you are witnessing.

Soon, though, you will be flying beyond the city borders, across a plateau of dried lava fields and jagged rock formations, to make your way to every citizen's favourite mountain, Mount Esja. Your pilot will be sure to point out interesting highlights along the way, teaching you about the local geology and history of the region.

When you reach the mountain summit, your pilot will land the helicopter with ease, allowing you to take some brilliant photographs of the city below and the beautiful surrounding area. You'll feel on top of the world, breathing that fresh mountain air, enjoying the solitude and openness of Reykjavík's closest mountain, which you just conquered so effortlessly. 

Finally, your pilot will fly you back to the city, where you can enjoy the kaleidoscopic rooftop view once more before making the landing at Reykjavík Domestic Airport.
