Harness the power of flight with this comprehensive helicopter tour across the stunning and eclectic landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula. If you want to see the rugged volcanic terrain of Iceland from above, this is the excursion for you. 

Your adventure begins at Reykjavík Domestic Airport. There, you will meet your highly trained and experienced pilot who will give you the rundown of the day's itinerary, showing you the proposed route on the map. They will also introduce you to the helicopter you will be flying, one of many in an expertly maintained, modern fleet of aircraft, where customer safety and comfort are of the highest concern.

You will first fly south towards the famous geothermal area of Krísuvík Bay. 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 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. It goes without saying that you will want your camera at hand for all the spectacular photo opportunities of your journey.

At the western edge of the Reykjanes Peninsula, if conditions allow, your pilot will make a touchdown by the famous Reykjanesviti lighthouse. This gem is a favourite amongst residents and visitors alike, given its proud and aesthetic position on the coastline. 

On your way back towards Reykjavík, you will pass over the Blue Lagoon and adjacent geothermal plant and be able to watch the hot steam rising into the air from the midst of a stunning lava field. You will then make your way back to the city and step of your helicopter, your veins no doubt still pumping with adrenaline and joy.
