Reykjavik City Helicopter Tour with Mountain Top Landing

Own your surroundings with this fantastic private helicopter tour over the charming city of Reykjavik, with an added landing on the beautiful Mount Esja!

Your one-hour tour will begin at Hangar 6, the tour office at Reykjavík Domestic Airport. 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. He will also give a run down on the helicopter, one of many in a well maintained and extremely modern fleet, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the tour.

When everyone in the group is ready and excited, you will board the aircraft and take off over the northern-most capital in the world! You will be able to easily pick out such local landmarks as the Harpa concert hall, the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church and even the dome of Perlan Restaurant. You'll quickly realise this is the only way to really appreciate the city of Reykjavik. Soon, though, you will be flying beyond the city borders, across a plateau of dried lava fields and jagged rock formations, on your way to the famous Mount Esja. Your pilot will be sure to point out interest 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, allowing everyone on tour to take some brilliant photographs of the city below and the exquisite 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. Finally, when everyone is ready, your pilot will fly back to the city.
