ATV & Helicopter Ride Combo From Reykjavik

Combine two thrilling Icelandic tours without travelling far out of Iceland’s capital, with this exciting combination an ATV excursion and a helicopter trip. This experience should not be overlooked by any looking to pack as much as they can into half a day in Reykjavík. The tour begins when you are picked up from the predetermined meeting point on your voucher, either your hotel or the nearest bus stop, and are driven to the ATV base camp on the city’s outskirts. Here, your friendly, experienced guides will dress you in protective gear, before showing you to your quad bike. Only licensed drivers are permitted to take the controls, but the only prerequisite for passengers is to be six years old or older. Once your group is all ready and comfortable, you’ll set off on the rocky trails up to Lake Hafravatn, a serene but often overlooked feature. After shooting around its shores, you will begin a daring and exciting ascent up Mount Hafrafell. The views from its summit are spectacular in clear weather. You will stop once you reach it for an opportunity to take photographs of the colourful rooftops of Reykjavík, the sparkling waters of Faxaflói Bay, and the flat-topped Mount Esjan. If the weather is notably good, you’ll also be able to marvel the volcanoes of the Reykjanes Peninsula and the length of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, to its crowning glacier, Snæfellsjökull. Although it will initially seem that these views cannot be matched, you’ll soon see that they are in fact enhanced when seen from a helicopter. You’ll quadbike back down the mountain to the base camp, where you’ll give back your equipment and be escorted to Reykjavík’s Domestic Airport. Here, you’ll meet your pilot, who will brief you on your flight route, before letting you board their chopper. These modern, well-maintained vehicles are incredibly safe to journey on, but no one will blame you for clutching your armrests as you lift into the sky, and Iceland’s capital shrinks beneath you. Your fear will no doubt dissipate into excitement as you soar through the skies above Reykjavík. The sites of the city are beautiful from street level, even more so from the peak of Hafrafell, but simply without comparison from a helicopter. Your overall journey will take about an hour, but midway through, your pilot will make a mountaintop landing, and allow you twenty minutes to photograph the beautiful surrounding landscapes. The adventure will finish when you land back at the airport, with enough time to fully enjoy the rest of your day. Don’t miss this thrilling combination of driving an ATV and flying in a helicopter.

This tour is a must for those eager to make the absolute most of their travels under the Arctic Circle.

On day two, however, the adventure truly starts, as you head to one of Iceland’s three national parks: Snæfellsnes. This 90 kilometre stretch of peninsula is often called ‘Iceland in miniature’ due to the wealth of scenery you will experience here. You'll spend a full day exploring this diverse land, with an opportunity to go lava-caving.  Then, a full day will be spent seeing the most famous sites of Iceland, around the iconic Golden Circle. You will have the opportunity on this day to take a variety of adventures to finish your action-packed holiday with.

You will get to experience authentic Greenlandic culture, with the opportunity to admire the local architecture, visit a museum, and perhaps even see a traditional Inuit drum dance. You will return to Reykjavík by plane that evening, and spend the next two days touring the South Coast of Iceland. During this part of the tour, you will get to enjoy waterfalls, glaciers, beaches, and the iconic glacier lagoon. You will even have a chance to hike on Sólheimajökull glacier. You’ll return to spend a night in the capital. The day after will be dedicated to this vibrant and lively city, where you can explore landmarks and historical sites alike, and then spend your last night in Reykjavík.

ATV & Helicopter Ride Combo From Reykjavik

Combine two thrilling Icelandic tours without travelling far out of Iceland’s capital, with this exciting combination an ATV excursion and a helicopter trip. This experience should not be overlooked by any looking to pack as much as they can into half a day in Reykjavík. The tour begins when you are picked up from the predetermined meeting point on your voucher, either your hotel or the nearest bus stop, and are driven to the ATV base camp on the city’s outskirts. Here, your friendly, experienced guides will dress you in protective gear, before showing you to your quad bike. Only licensed drivers are permitted to take the controls, but the only prerequisite for passengers is to be six years old or older. Once your group is all ready and comfortable, you’ll set off on the rocky trails up to Lake Hafravatn, a serene but often overlooked feature. After shooting around its shores, you will begin a daring and exciting ascent up Mount Hafrafell. The views from its summit are spectacular in clear weather. You will stop once you reach it for an opportunity to take photographs of the colourful rooftops of Reykjavík, the sparkling waters of Faxaflói Bay, and the flat-topped Mount Esjan. If the weather is notably good, you’ll also be able to marvel the volcanoes of the Reykjanes Peninsula and the length of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, to its crowning glacier, Snæfellsjökull. Although it will initially seem that these views cannot be matched, you’ll soon see that they are in fact enhanced when seen from a helicopter. You’ll quadbike back down the mountain to the base camp, where you’ll give back your equipment and be escorted to Reykjavík’s Domestic Airport. Here, you’ll meet your pilot, who will brief you on your flight route, before letting you board their chopper. These modern, well-maintained vehicles are incredibly safe to journey on, but no one will blame you for clutching your armrests as you lift into the sky, and Iceland’s capital shrinks beneath you. Your fear will no doubt dissipate into excitement as you soar through the skies above Reykjavík. The sites of the city are beautiful from street level, even more so from the peak of Hafrafell, but simply without comparison from a helicopter. Your overall journey will take about an hour, but midway through, your pilot will make a mountaintop landing, and allow you twenty minutes to photograph the beautiful surrounding landscapes. The adventure will finish when you land back at the airport, with enough time to fully enjoy the rest of your day. Don’t miss this thrilling combination of driving an ATV and flying in a helicopter.

Helicopter Tour | The South Coast, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon & The Highlands

Join this memorable helicopter tour of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the black sand beaches of the South and everything in between. This is the perfect tour for those who want to get a bird's eye view of the beautiful Icelandic nature. The tour starts off in the capital city Reykjavík, where you will board your aircraft. Shortly after that, you'll be soaring through the air over the diverse dramatic landscape of the whole South Coast of Iceland.  As you fly to the majestic glacier lagoon, you will pass the endless stretches of black lava sand beaches, river deltas, glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls and other jaw-dropping sights. Along the way, the helicopter will land twice at scenic locations. The site of these locations differs each time and is based on your preferences and the pilot's expert recommendation. You will be able to have lunch, which is provided, at one of the stops. Your pilot knows all the best places for a wonderful picnic. You will then land at the beautiful Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where you can see enormous icebergs that have broken off a nearby glacier tongue drift peacefully on the icy blue lagoon.  As you head back from one of Europe‘s largest glaciers, Vatnajökull, and it‘s countless glacier tongues, you'll be taken into the barren highlands of Iceland. This is the geologist‘s paradise where Mother Nature shows off her fascinating formations.  Majestic and primaeval volcanic scenery with towering mountains, canyons, lakes, valleys, waterfalls, and craters will greet you in the highlands. The contrast of the black volcanic sands, the geothermal colours and the glacier ice in the rugged, remote areas of the highlands will surely be a sight to remember.  Once you've seen the whole South Coast as well as the highlands from above, it is time to head back to Reykjavík with a head full of memories and a heart filled with joy.
