Soar for up to an hour above the active volcano at Fagradalsfjall in Iceland with this jaw-dropping helicopter tour! Anyone staying in or passing through Reykjavik right now should grab this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
For this excursion, you will first head to Reykjavik’s Domestic Airport, conveniently located just half an hour’s walk (or five minutes’ drive) from the center. Here, you’ll meet your friendly pilot, who has plenty 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 before you set out across the volcanic landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula.
As you soar over this barren wilderness, you’ll find yourself getting ever closer to the column of black smoke rising before you. In just minutes, you’ll find yourself at its source, marveling over the breathtaking forces of an Icelandic eruption.
The earth opens in vivid fissures and rivers of molten rock; fire bursts from craters, flinging out lava bombs and an abundance of volcanic fumes; the vast field of new earth surrounding it glows a haunting red as it slowly cools from its violent emergence from the earth.
While After circling this awe-inspiring place several times you can enjoy the Morder-like landscapes from the air before heading back for a touchdown in Reykjavik. Volcanic eruptions are not constant in Iceland, so the chance to see one so easily from the capital is a true privilege.
