Take to the skies with this exhilarating and breathtaking helicopter tour over Reykjavík and the nearby mountains. For anyone seeking city and nature sightseeing at its finest, this tour should not be missed.

You will begin by meeting at the departure spot at Reykjavík’s Domestic Airport; here, your pilot for the day will give you a briefing on your plans and destination, before you sidle into the helicopter. After buckling up and putting on your earphones, it’s time for lift off.

The adrenaline rush of taking to the sky, with Reykjavík and its patchwork quilt of colourful tin roofs unfolding beneath you, is a sensation that cannot be matched with any other excursion. With the propellers beating overhead, you will soar across the beautiful city, catching all of its iconic sites.

Hallgrímskirkja church, the Harpa Concert Hall, the Imagine Peace Tower on Viðey Island; all will be in sight as you climb higher and higher, circling over the world’s northernmost capital. After taking in the spectacular urban views, you will make your way towards one of the nearby mountain ranges.

Your experienced pilot will find a suitable tabletop mountain and make a smooth landing on its plateau. Here, you will disembark, breathe in the pure mountain air, and take in the otherworldly vistas. This is an incredible photo opportunity, as such a vantage point is inaccessible by any other means.

Once your pictures have been taken and you’ve soaked up your beautiful surroundings, you’ll return to your helicopter, and take off back the sky. After circling the mountains once more, you will head back to Reykjavík's Domestic Airport with memories that will last you a lifetime.

Do not miss this thrilling journey over Iceland’s capital and its surrounding nature by helicopter! Check availability by choosing a date.
