Reykjavík is the most northerly cosmopolitan capital in the world, surrounded by natural energy.
Strong contrasts characterize the city. Small houses clad in corrugated iron stand next to futuristic glass buildings. State-of-the-art facilities are minutes from rugged volcanic terrain. International influences mix with Icelandic national traditions to create a unique culture.
In the days, explore the city itself, visit the Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral or head over to the Harpa concert hall which is home to the national opera and symphony. Or head to the bars which are filled with live music, friendly local’s and an amazing atmosphere.
Reykjavík has something to offer for everyone. Whether you're looking for the bubbling energy of a cosmopolitan city, the thundering geothermal energy in the ground beneath your feet, or the tranquil green energy of the countryside surrounding the city, Reykjavík promises a memorable visit.
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 with renewable energy. On this tour, we make sure to land off the beaten track and away from the crowds to witness the regions raw scenery first-hand. In the landing place of Hengill geothermal area - named after the Hengill volcano - you can witness 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. On our way back we fly over Reykjavik, to give you a unique view of Icelands capital. The total duration of the tour is 50-60 minutes. 25-35 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing by a remote geothermal area on an old volcano.
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. Enjoy the beautiful sight of the vast blue ocean that hugs the city shore and catch sight of the small islands scattered in the distance. From above you'll gaze over quaint and colourful settlements that sprawl out in the distance and into the vast Arctic and beyond.
This tour will leave you feeling more acquainted to Reykjavik and Iceland and it's majestic landscape. We fly over Reykjavik's vibrant city and the mountains that surround the world’s northernmost capital. 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. You'll see the crumbling mountains behind you that, with their grandeur, might simply take your breath away... as well as the steaming volcanic hillsides that give this “Smokey Bay” its nickname. From the top of the mountain you'll gaze over quaint and colourful settlements that sprawl out in the distance and into the vast Arctic and beyond. The total duration of the tour is 40-45 minutes. 15-20 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing on a nearby mountain.
On our most spectacular tour we overfly Þórsmörk Nature Reserve and land on Fimmvörðuháls's volcanic crater. We also fly above the infamous, and now dormant, Eyjafjallajökull Glacier Volcano whose eruption in 2010 became global news. From the top we head down its glacier tongue Gígjökull, that was split in half by hot melting lava. And if we're lucky we might even catch a glimpse of Iceland's most active volcano- Hekla, and the Westman Islands. En route back to Reykjavik we follow the black lava sand beach that stretches hundreds of kilometers along the South Coast of Iceland. The black sand beach is a vast expanse of volcanic material laid bare by the endless tides of the ocean. As we continue back to Reykjavík we soar over lava fields, explore craters, and fly over the Hengill geothermal area to get a better idea of how power plants harness geothermal heat to provide clean, sustainable energy. The total duration of the tour is 2-2,5 hours. 80-120 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing at a scenic location.
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 UNESCO World Heritage Site - 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. We continue our flight to the geothermal area of the old Hengill volcano. We land in a valley that has natural hot springs, mud pots, and is only accessible by a helicopter (or few hours hike of course!). In this remote area, you can feel the true essence of Icelandic nature - just how Mother Earth made it. The total duration of the tour is 65-85 minutes. 40-60 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing by a remote geothermal area on an old volcano.
