'The Wonders of Snæfellsnes' Private Helicopter Tour

Go further with this exceptional helicopter tour exploring the other-worldly peninsula of Snæfellsnes! This is the alternative private option to 'the Wonders of Snæfellsnes' helicopter tour, an excellent choice for visitors looking for a more personalised tour across the region. 

Snæfellsnes is the setting for Jules Verne's classic science-fiction novel, "Journey to the Centre of the Earth', with the mighty Snæfellsjökull glacier acting as the entrance to the strange underground world of the novel's namesake. Above ground, the landscape is just as fantastical ("reality is stranger than fiction"), with its dramatic cliff-faces, snow-wreathed mountains and wide blue lakes. In many respects, the Snæfellsnes peninsula is the very embodiment of Iceland.

The tour office is where your flight-seeing adventure will begin, at Hangar 6 just by Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Your pilot for the day, a highly trained and experienced professional, will introduce himself and the aircraft, a modern and routinely maintained helicopter. They will also discuss the trip itinerary, show you the flight path on a map and tell you the proposed landing sights along the way.

The domineering landmark of Snæfellsnes is, undoubtedly, Snæfellsjökull glacier, an icecap that stretches all the way down to the coastline. Flying high over Snæfellsjökull's summit, you will have incredible views of the Reykjanes peninsula to the south and the beautiful Westfjords to the north. The bay of Breiðafjörður is also in clear view with its thousands of small islands and quaint coastal villages. On your flight back to Reykjavík, you will pass a wealth of landscapes, including dried lava plateaus, volcanic craters and lush farming fields. Your journey will last for approximately four hours, with occasional landings and a meal stop along the way. 

So don't delay! Grab your chance to explore the magical  Snæfellsnes peninsula, and you too can experience the unique beauty of one of Iceland's best-kept secrets! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
