Iceland’s unique landscape of glaciers, steamy hot springs and towering volcanic peaks could have been lifted from the pages of a fantasy novel. There are few places in the world with such a mesmerizing variety of scenery, and whether you choose to hike through the hills, gallop cross-country on an Icelandic horse or take a dip in the natural geothermic pools, this is a land ripe for exploring. But if it’s the ultimate view you’re after, why not take to the skies?

There are a number of options for helicopter tours from Reykjavik and you’re sure to be blown away by any one of them for the striking bird’s-eye views as you soar overhead. Fly to the summit of Mt Esja on a 40-minute helicopter tour and touch down on the 914-meter peak just north of the capital, or head east from Reykjavik for a 40-minute flight over the spectacular geothermal landscapes, which include the Seltún lava fields and famous Blue Lagoon. Alternatively, choose a one-hour or 90-minute flight over the Reykjanes peninsula and the geothermal fields, hot springs and black-sand beaches of Iceland’s southwestern coast, including the Grænavatn and Kleifarvatn lakes. 

Not sure which to choose? Opt for the ultimate flight with a tour that covers the best of South Iceland and spend a whole day taking in the sights from the air on a personalized itinerary. You’ll get a matchless aerial view of Vatnajökull National Park and the Hekla volcano; soar over highlights of the Golden Circle, such as Thingvellir National Park, Geysir and Gulfoss waterfall; and make three stops to explore sights like the glacial lagoon of Jökulsárlón, the multi-hued mountains of Landmannalaugar and the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
