I'd highly recommend anyone looking...
Chris Y, Mar 2017
I'd highly recommend anyone looking for an out of the ordinary tour to do this. Our pilot, Mattius was knowledgeable and put the 3 of us at ease throughout. Landing in view of several hot springs, a waterfall and the backdrop of the atlantic ocean was just breathtaking and made better by a glass of bubbly :-

Absolutely amazing!!! The views were out of this world! My favorite part was seeing Thingvellir National Park from above and then visiting it on a subsequent tour. I would recommend this to anyone!

We never had the chance to do this tour because the weather was bad but they very accommodating, they tried to get us in and tried to work with our schedule but we were very booked, the only other day we could have done it was another bad weather day. Still really appreciated them trying as much as they did. They made sure to keep in contact with us and didn't waste our time by letting us go out there. We are planning to go back to Iceland and will defiantly be booking with them again!
