'The Hour of Power' Helicopter Tour

Harness the power of flight with this comprehensive helicopter tour across the stunning and eclectic Reykjanes Peninsula!

The tour will begin at Hangar 6, the tour office just beside Reykjavík Domestic Airport. There, you will meet your highly trained and experienced pilot who will give you the rundown on the upcoming day. They will run through the tour itinerary and show you the proposed route on the map. They will also discuss the helicopter you will be flying, one of many in an expertly maintained, modern fleet of aircraft. Customer safety and comfort are of the highest concern.

You will first fly south towards the famous geothermal area, Krísuvík. Being here is very much like being on the moon, given the truly alien terrain. Hot springs and bubbling mud pools in the area both contribute to the green, red and yellow soil, while steam rising amongst the hills creates a truly dramatic panorama.

Following on from your stop at Krísuvík, you will fly along the southern coastline in the direction of the fishing town Grindavík, passing majestic cliff faces and mountains on one side, and the rolling blue of the North Atlantic ocean on the other. Not a bad commute!

At the western edge of the Reykjanes Peninsula, your pilot will land (weather permitting) close to the famous Reykjanesviti lighthouse. This is a favourite amongst residents and visitors alike, given its proud and aesthetic position on the coastline. Don't forget your camera!

On your way back toward Reykjavík, you will pass over the Blue Lagoon and adjacent geothermal plant and be able to watch the hot steam rising into the air around it. You will then make your way back to the city. Overall, the journey lasts approximately an hour.
