Go further with this exceptional helicopter tour exploring the other-worldly peninsula of Snæfellsnes from above. This private flight-seeing tour is an excellent choice for visitors looking for a more personalised excursion across the region of West Iceland. 

Your journey to the skies begins at Reykjavík Domestic airport, where you will meet up with your pilot for the day, a highly trained and experienced professional. They will introduce themselves and the aircraft in question, a modern and routinely maintained helicopter. After having acquainted yourself with the trip itinerary and the flight-route on a map, you will get in, buckle up and take off.

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is dotted with dramatic cliffs, snow-capped mountains and vast blue lakes. The area is often dubbed Iceland in miniature since its sweeping landscapes count for the very embodiment of the land of ice and fire, and there is arguably no better way to experience them than from above.

The jewel in the peninsula's crown is the mighty Snæfellsjökull glacier volcano, the setting for Jules Verne's classic science-fiction novel, "Journey to the Centre of the Earth'. This stunning ice-cap acts as the entrance to the strange underground world of the novel's namesake and seeing its ethereal allure, one can immediately understand why.

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 myriad of small islands and quaint coastal villages.

Depending on the conditions, your pilot will make several touchdowns for you to get off and enjoy the fantastical landscapes at hand, with plenty of time to take stunning photographs of what you see. There will also be a lunch stop en route.

On your flight back to Reykjavík, you will pass a wealth of landscapes, including dried lava plateaus, volcanic craters and lush farm fields.  

So don't delay, grab your chance now to explore the air above the magical  Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and you too can experience the unique beauty of some of Iceland's best-kept secrets. Check availability by choosing a date.
