Great tour and fantastic driver/guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and country. Topped off what was already a fantastic week. We were the only ones on the helicopter. So great to be a private helicopter ride. If your looking to go on a helicopter definitely go with this company.
loved it, was good to do something differnt, an the people that did the tour were sooo nice!
This was the coolest little trip. Our pilot was very gracious and made great efforts to make sure we were all secure and happy. There is nothing quite like an arial view. The ride very smooth!
All staff are extremely friendly and happy to answer questions. The cloud cover was quite bad on the day so we weren't able to get out to Mt Esja. The pilot instead elected to land on a close-by volcano which gave us plenty of photo opportunities.
Ah.Maze.Ing. This was soo cool and we are so glad that we did. Landing on the mountain you feel like the only people in the world. A great trip and I would highly recommend everyone who is visiting Iceland to do it.
Absolutely stunning views of the Reykjavik area and nearby mountains, even in cloudy/rainy conditions. The pilot was very friendly and was a great tour guide along the way. Unforgettable part of the trip without a doubt. Worth every penny!
My tour has been upgraded from Mt Esja Summit tour to the Geothermal Activity tour. I was contacted by the company in due time. The tour was absolutely amazing!!! It was my first time on a helicopter and, after the first quick introduction, off we went! The chance to see the amazing landscapes and nature of Iceland from the air was one of a kind experience. We have landed on a field where the guide has shown us different types of sources and where you could literally see hot steam shooting out of the ground. The guide has given us a lot of background informations about the geological structure of Iceland and the way the geothermal activity is used to produce energy. I would definitely do the tour again and would recommend it to everyone!
Very friendly staffs, amazing experience, our pilot Mr.Giblis was very frindly.. Took us with some amazing twists and turns.. Good fun, would definitely recommend.
This was the highlight of the trip. Was a great time we had on the helicopter tour. I took my 16 and 6 year old on this tour, they loved it! The views were breath taking. If you go to Reykjavik go on this tour.
After being rescheduled 3 times we finally did our tour on our last day in Reykjavik. It was short but still highly enjoyable - our pilot was friendly and knowledgable and being on the summit without the hike as fun :)
I sat in the front and had a great view. Landed on a large hill, don't think it was actually the summit of Mt. Esja but the weather was cold, cloudy, and luckily the rain stopped so the flight wasn't canceled. Hovered over cool volcanoes and rifts in the Earth. Then zipped around the city nice and low and got great photos.
Whilst the trip was re-arranged and they had tried but couldn't contact us, we arrived at the correct time to find out it had been postponed to 2 hours later; however they very kindly gave us a voucher for complimentary use of the spa in the hotel at the airport, to save us walking back into town. We were also promised a complimentary upgrade to the champagne trip. It sounds really ungrateful to say we didn't get the champagne - which really didn't bother us, but don’t offer something if you can't deliver it! I would also question if we went to Mt Esja - the blurb states a 40 min helicopter flight from Reykjavik, which we certainly didn’t get! I think because the flight was delayed by 2 hours there wasn't the day light to complete the trip we paid for; but there was no explanation! So we didn’t get what we paid for. All that being said the flight was great, the pilot very knowledgeable and very kind as I was very nervous. I would recommend the trip - but I think they need to be a little better at communication!
It was an amazing experience however the weather was quite bad so we couldnt actually fly to mount Esja. This would have been fine but the helicopter company failed to tell us this. We only knew because the place we went to was only a 10 minute journey and was a small extinct volcano.
