What You Can Expect

Reykjavik Helicopter Flight: Reykjanes Peninsula and Volcanic Landscapes

See the incredible Icelandic landscape from the air on a scenic helicopter tour

Make your own way to Reykjavik Domestic Airport in time for your morning or afternoon flight, and then listen to a quick safety briefing before following your pilot into your helicopter. Take a seat either next to your pilot or in the row of four seats to the rear, and then take to the skies over Reykjavik.

As the hustle and bustle of the city slips from your view, the moon-like landscape of Reykjanes peninsula takes center stage. Jutting out into the sea off Iceland’s southwest coast, the dramatic stretch of headland is known for its vast lava fields, speckled with geological formations and craters, as well as its volcanic black-sand beaches. Gaze down at the geothermal field of Seltún, and swoon at its hot springs, mud pits and steaming solfataras (volcanic vents), before looping around the rugged coastline.

Besides the peninsula’s hot springs, your route takes in some impressive expanses of water. Admire the sight of Lake Grænavatn where bright green water (a combination of minerals and algae) fills a centuries-old crater. Before returning to Reykjavik, fly above Kleifarvatn, the peninsula’s largest lake, nestled at the foot of a steep mountain.

After an hour in the air, return to the start point at Reykjavik Domestic Airport where your helicopter flight finishes. If you have more time free, upgrade to a 1.5-hour flight and spend longer in the air, checking out all of the peninsula’s sights.
