Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of taking a helicopter tour, compared to taking a normal sightseeing tour?

The view from a helicopter is unlike any other. You are much closer to the ground than you would be on an airplane tour, meaning you have an unparalleled stretching landscape view. Helicopter tours also give you access to areas and views that would be unattainable from the ground, such as erupting volcanoes or the most desolate parts of the Highlands.

Do the helicopter companies offer pick-ups?

Some tour operators do provide minibus transfers, while others do not. Please contact our team on info@guidetoiceland.is for further information. 

What happens if the helicopter tour is cancelled?

In the unfortunate event that your helicopter tour is cancelled, you will have two options. You can either move your tour to another date and time or get a full refund.

Do the helicopter tours depart from Keflavik Airport or Reykjavik Airport?

The tours will depart from a hangar near Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Please check the departure location on the tour page.
