The Silver Circle Private Helicopter Tour

Discover the silver lining of every cloud with this incredible private helicopter tour around some of the most stunning destinations found in West Iceland.

Your tour will begin at Hangar 6, the tour offices located just beside Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Here, you will meet your highly trained, experienced and personable pilot who will go about running through the tour itinerary, showing the proposed route on a map and talking a little about the helicopter you'll be flying in. The entire fleet of aircraft is expertly maintained and boasts some of the modern helicopters in Iceland, ensuring both comfort and safety for all visitors ready for some flight-seeing. 

After take-off, you will head north from the capital, soon reaching Hvalfjörður ("Whale fjord"). Your pilot will fly you the full length of the fjord, before flying over the tallest waterfall in the whole of Iceland, Glymur. This is truly a magnificent sight, with the water cascading approximately 200 metres down a rocky, picturesque canyon. 

From there, you will next head to the always stunning, Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage sight. Famous for its long political history, uniquely active geology and aesthetically beautiful landscapes, this is one of the most incredible places in the whole of Iceland. To see it in all of its majesty from the air is a truly unique, life-affirming experience.

Your next and final stop will be at Mount Hengill, an area renowned for its red and yellow soil, geothermal pools and cloudy steam vents, pouring out into the open air. You will also be able to spot the nearby geothermal power plant, providing heat for the region. 

Weather permitting, there will be one stop during the tour, presenting an opportunity to get out of the helicopter and explore your surroundings. Exactly where you land will be up to the pilot's discretion.
