We had a very smooth ride piloted by a very professional aviator. The views of the Reykjavik area stunning. The highlight was stopping on the summit and walking in the very thick moss - a unique experience

First time in a heli. Was a little nervous ahead of time but the flight was very smooth and the pilot confidence inspiring. We went on the geothermal tour. After a beautiful take off from the city airport we flew over the harbor and inland. Our one stop was by some gurgling, bubbling mud pots and small hot spring feed streams. After our stop we also flew over some interesting volcanic features such as craters, old lava flows, and a lava river bed. The tour is a bit pricey but was definitely one of the more interesting things I did while in Reykjavik.

Great tour, awesome pilot that was very knowledgeable and no rush in and out, we were allowed to take our time taking photos and looking around the landing area.

Out of this world views. The pilot was so nice and let my daughter sit at the front. Best money I have ever spent and one of the best experiences of my life. I would encourage anyone and everyone to do this.

Very friendly staff. Kept us informed about changes in date / time due to weather disturbance. Flight to nearby mountain was great, exciting, good dialogue from the pilot and we had a chance to land and walk around for 10 minutes.

Breathtaking flight up to Mount Esja, and the pilot explained a lot about the terrain we passed over. Stayed on the peak for a good while, and he took several brilliant pictures. Highly recommend doing flights with them, and they even give you free coffee that actually tastes good.

The weather was perfect. I wrote my name in the ice on top of a volcano. The pilot and I cannot remember his name unfortunately knew everything about the area and was very informative. The helicopter ride alone is phenomenal and luckily being so tall I was in the front. This was outstanding. Worth every penny. I am saving so that my next trip to Iceland will include the geothermal helicopter tour. This was brilliant. Cannot recommend it highly enough

We changed tours to the geothermal tour. Nordurflug who run these tours couldnt have been more helpful. Our pilot was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Breath taking views of the mountains. Arrange the tour for just after sunrise and you are in for a treat. Cant recommend this trip enough. Stunning!

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.

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!

Fantastic experience!

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.

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!
