Admire some of Iceland’s most dramatic volcanic landscapes

Choose from a morning or afternoon helicopter flight
The vast, remote landscape surrounding Reykjavik is difficult to access and truly appreciate from the ground. Take to the skies for an unforgettable perspective of the volcanic terrain. Choose from a morning or afternoon flight, and make your way to Reykjavik Domestic Airport. Meet your experienced pilot and receive a brief safety training before climbing aboard a helicopter. You can even sit right next to the pilot for a front-row view if you like.
Soar up and over the Reykjanes Peninsula, a dramatic stretch of land featuring black-sand beaches and rugged lava fields. Learn about the geologic history of the peninsula from your pilot as you sweep over the steaming volcanic vents and dormant craters of Seltún. See Iceland’s famous mud pits filled with mineral-rich volcanic soil and geothermal hot springs of a minty green hue.
Fly above several lakes that dot the region, including massive, mountainside Lake Kleifarvatn and Lake Grænavatn, which owes its brilliant emerald shade to mineral and algae deposits. Experience the thrill of hovering above these geologic wonders and the unmatched access that a nimble helicopter provides.
After your exhilarating helicopter flight, touch down back at the airport in Reykjavik and bid farewell to your pilot.

Helicopter tour was the highlight of...
, Nov 2016
Helicopter tour was the highlight of our trip. We did the volcano tour and landed near a volcano that we were able to climb for pictures. The views were great and the pilot was very nice. This country is so beautiful and it's a unique way to see it.
Our pilot was friendly, knowledgeable and informative. He showed us Icelandic landscape features as we could never have seen them from the ground. We have already recommended this tour to a fellow traveler.
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!
