Glacier Landing

Start your adventure from the Reykjavik Domestic Airport and head onwards toward Þórisjökull glacier. The landing on this tour is on Þórisjökull glacier, next to Langjökull glacier, and we grant you the chance to set foot on it. Enjoy the almost unrealistic view and the magical feeling of walking on top of a glacier. The glacier itself is covered in snow all year round, so you can take a deep breath of the fresh alpine air, make snow angels, or throw snowballs as far as you possibly can. From the peak of the glacier you can see the distinctive features of the wild highlands of Iceland. We then head off to the shield volcano Skjaldbreiður and fly over its crater (sorry, it is an old volcano crater so no lava will be visible).

Waterfalls & Valleys

The Waterfalls & Valleys tour has three main attractions - the grand Glymur waterfall, the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Þingvellir National Park (both also known from the famous Golden Circle tour), and the Hengill geothermal area where we land. Setting off from the urban views of Reykjavik, we will catch a glimpse of Esja, the mountain just next to the city border. En route we'll see the highest waterfall in Iceland - Glymur. It is a popular hiking area but nothing beats the view you get from a helicopter! Next, the Þingvellir National Park, with its absolutely magical culture and nature. Besides being a sacred place for all Icelandic people, and an important part of the country's history - it is a once in a lifetime experience to see it from the sky. At ground level, it's hard to grasp the idea that two tectonic plates that drifted apart actually created Iceland... that's why we take flight!

Heli – Happy Hour

Have you ever wondered what it is like to fly in a helicopter, to the top of a mountain, to open up a bottle of sparkling wine? Well... this is your chance! This round trip to a nearby mountaintakes in breath-taking views of Reykjavik as you overfly the city. You will see colorful and charming dollhouse roofs, the neighboring towns and the surrounding countryside with extensive lava fields, reminding us of the true volcanic nature of Iceland. After a thrilling helicopter ride we land on one of the summits surrounding the city for the photo opportunity of a life-time.

Countless Craters

Catch a glimpse of the rough but magical beauty Iceland's volcanic landscape is known for. As you soar above the moonlike Reykjanes peninsula you will get to truly appreciate its grandeur - something only possible from air. You will see countless volcanic craters, the unforgiving ocean lining the coast, the Seltún geothermal area, the Blue Lagoon, Lake Kleifarvatn and Lake Grænavatn. Of course no tour would be complete without a landing and time to explore... on this tour we stop at Eldvörp on the Reykjanes Peninsula in the southwest of the island. It is a 10 km long crater row that contains extensive geothermal activity so you will always see steam rising from the earth. This combination of rugged coastline and rising steam will make it feel like you've landed on another planet entirely!

Geothermal Tour

When we fly over one of the most active volcanic areas in Iceland, the Hellisheiði plateau, you’ll see moss covered lava fields stretched out to the horizon, interspersed with colorful basalt mountains, steaming hot springs and the very geothermal power plants that supply Reykjavik it's renewable energy. On this sightseeing tour, we make sure to land off the beaten track and away from the crowds to witness the regions raw energy first-hand. In the landing place of Hengill geothermal area - named after the Hengill volcano - you can witness upfront the untouched Icelandic nature. We bring you close to hot springs and boiling mud pots, and you might even see some sheep wandering around the valley in the summer.

Reykjavik Summit

A short-and-sweet exploration of Reykjavik's vibrant cityscape and the mountains that surround the world’s northernmost capital. As we take off smoothly from the airport, you'll see how quickly the city gets smaller and smaller beneath us, with every turn of the helicopter's wings. Further into the tour we land on a nearby summit where you'll have the chance to capture a silent panorama of the vast blue ocean that hugs the city shore and catch sight of the small islands scattered in the distance.
