What You Can Expect
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.
It was the highlight of our trip to Iceland - utterly fantastic. The staff were very cordial and most accommodating. Can't wait to go again.
Everything about this tour was wonderful. We went out in the morning, but the weather was bad so the company organised to take us out again in the afternoon. The staff were fantastic, especially the pilots, and the tour took us over the incredible landscape, with a view of volcanos and geothermal areas that you just cant get from the ground. Landing balanced on the crater's edge of a volcano was incredible!
This was quite good and interesting seeing the craters from the air. We had upgraded to this flight but really we thought it was overpriced for what we saw.
Awesome. However, it covers much of the landscape seen on the Golden Circle drive.
