'The Hour of Power' Private Helicopter Tour

Take a power trip with this spectacular helicopter tour exploring some of west Iceland's most popular attractions! This is the private alternative to 'the hour of power' helicopter tour, the perfect choice for those looking for a short and personalised flight-seeing trip around Reykjanes geopark and the geothermal areas in the lava fields. 

You will arrive at the tour office, Hangar 6, located very close to Reykjavík Domestic Airport. There, you will be introduced to your highly experienced pilot, who will take the time to go over the day's plan. They will also show you the proposed flight path on a map and introduce you to the helicopter, just one out of an expertly maintained, modern fleet.

Your tour will take you south from Reykjavík towards the surreal landscapes of Krísuvík. Many have said the terrain of Krísuvík looks more like that of another planet than Earth, and it's very easy to see why!  Red soil, gurgling mud pools and cloudy steam vents all make this area an incredibly unique sight and provides real insight into Iceland's active geological makeup.

From Krísuvík, you will fly down the southern coastlines toward the fishing town of Grindavík, framed by jagged mountain peaks, dramatic cliff faces and the rolling Atlantic ocean. As you swoop along the peninsula, you will stop at its most western point, by the picturesque lighthouse of Reykjanesviti. This is the oldest lighthouse in Iceland and is a favourite visiting spot for locals and guests alike. Photographers, in particular, will feel blessed at the opportunity to snap some epic pictures of Reykjanesviti!

On your way back to the capital, you will fly over the steamy and popular Blue Lagoon resort and its adjacent geothermal plant. The tour will last for approximately one hour. 

Reserve your place on this adrenaline packed flight-seeing tour and maximise your holiday experience seeing the best west Iceland has on display! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
