You begin by making your way to Reykjavík Domestic Airport, conveniently located close to the city centre. There, you will be introduced to your pilot and guide, both of whom are highly experienced, trained and deeply knowledgeable about Iceland. 

Together, they will run through the tour itinerary and introduce you to the day's aircraft, just one in a fleet of expertly maintained modern helicopters. They will also show the proposed route on a map, given you a fantastic insight into the breadth of experience yet to come.

When the group is ready, you'll hit the runway, board the helicopter and take a few, anticipatory breaths, for nothing can beat the exhilaration of hearing the rotors begin to roar to life, except perhaps taking off into the wide open sky. As you depart for your adventure, make sure to check out the Reykjavík skyline from above.

Outside of the city borders, you will travel miles by air to some of the most highly praised natural wonders in Iceland. The geothermal area of Geysir, the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall, the colourful hills of Landmannalaugar, and the infamous volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull are just a handful of stops from the day's action-packed itinerary.

Make sure not to forget your camera, for views such as these only come about once in a lifetime; soaring over mountain ranges, glacier rivers, volcanoes and ice caps, enjoying a bird's eye perspective of the volcanic island below. 

Then, at a quintessential countryside retreat on the South Coast, you will make just one of many stops to enjoy a delicious gourmet meal made with local ingredients, before making your way back to the capital in the comfort of your chopper. 

Hurry now so as not to miss your chance to explore a full range of Iceland's most popular destinations, all from the luxurious position of helicopter travel. Check availability by choosing a date.
