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. As you soar over this barren wilderness, you’ll soon find yourself at the recent eruption site.
As you soar over this barren wilderness, you can see where the earth opened up and marvel at the new black lava that's covering the area. Your pilot will take you on a journey around the recent eruption site in Meradalir valley, where you can see the solidified lava that surrounds the area. The lava is still hot and smoke is still coming off the lava in places.
After circling this awe-inspiring place several times, you can enjoy the Mordor-like landscapes from the air before heading back for a touchdown in Reykjavik. Grab your limited seat on this helicopter tour of Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
