Taking a private helicopter tour over Iceland is the optimal way to witness its landscapes.

Take a power trip with this spectacular helicopter tour exploring some of southwest Iceland's most popular attractions. This fully private tour is the perfect choice for those looking for a personalised flight-seeing trip around Reykjanes Geopark and its stunning geothermal areas and lava fields. 

Your adventure begins in the vicinity of Reykjavík Domestic Airport close to the city centre. There, you will be introduced to your highly experienced pilot, who will take the time to go over the day's plan, showing you the proposed flight path on a map. You will then be introduced to your chopper, a dazzling and modern aircraft, before buckling up and taking off.

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

From Krísuvík, you will fly down the southern coastline toward the fishing town of Grindavík, framed by jagged mountain peaks, dramatic cliff faces and the roaring Atlantic Ocean. As you soar 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, should take note of this unique and charming subject. 

On your way back to the capital, you will fly over the steamy hot springs of the world-famous Blue Lagoon and its adjacent geothermal plant. See the mystic blue waters of the lagoon in sharp contrast to the pitch dark lava field that surrounds it, before making your way back to the city, flying across the sweeping cityscapes of Reykjavík. 

Reserve your place on this adrenaline packed flight-seeing tour now, and maximise your holiday experience by gaining a bird's eye view of Iceland's other-worldly volcanic sceneries. Check availability by choosing a date.
