For this excursion, you will first head to Reykjavik Domestic Airport, conveniently located just a five minutes drive from the city center. Here, you’ll meet your friendly pilot, who has a lot of experience embarking on such thrilling journeys; they will brief you on the route before guiding you to the helicopter.

Taking off from the runway is an unforgettable sight. From the windows, you’ll be awed as the city shrinks beneath you and a colorful patchwork of vivid tin roofs unfolds. From this height, you’ll be able to see features such as Hallgrimskirkja church and the Harpa Concert Hall as if they were toy miniatures.

Then you will set out across the volcanic landscapes of the Reykjanes peninsula.

Your pilot will take you on a journey around the volcano, so you can see where the earth opened up. You will also fly over Fagradalsfjall volcano, which erupted in 2022, and Litli-Hrutur volcano, which erupted during the summer of 2023. You'll see the site of the recent eruptions of Sundhnukagigar crater row in the distance!

After circling the site of this incredible site several times before heading back for a touchdown in Reykjavik. Grab your limited seat on this helicopter tour to see a real volcano in action. Check availability by choosing a date.
