What You Can Expect

Mountain Helicopter Tour with Summit Landing from Reykjavik

Land on the Esja Summit and enjoy stunning views on a helicopter tour!

Choose from a morning or afternoon helicopter tour and travel independently to Reykjavik domestic airport in advance of your flight.

Meet your experienced pilot, and listen to a short briefing. Then, settle into your seat beside the pilot or in the row of seats behind.

Feel the excitement as your helicopter takes to the skies and gaze down over Reykjavik below, surrounded by a backcloth of magnificent mountains and the waters of Faxafloi Bay. 

Take in the awesome views as you swoop around Mt Esja or another local mountain, and thrill as your helicopter soars upwards to the top before gently touching down on the flat summit. 

Next, step out of your helicopter and drink in the sweeping mountain-and-city panoramas around you. 
Pose for photos and identify the different points of interest with help from your knowledgeable pilot. Then, climb back aboard and ascend into the skies again.

Experience the adrenaline rush as you fly over the edge of the summit, revealing the steep drop below, and then fly back over Reykjavik’s churches, rooftops and harborfront.

After roughly 40 minutes in the air, land back at the airport. Your tour ends when you leave your helicopter and say goodbye to your pilot.

Please note: Landing on a mountain summit is weather-dependent. For this reason, the landing location of your tour will be decided on the day, according to localized weather conditions.

Was a great star to the day, pilot was very friendly and gave us many travel scenes to photograph along the way along with commentary . Even our travelling Aussie bear loved it. Pity that there was no snow when we went but this gave us the sights of the lava layers very clearly . Highly recommend

This trip was so much fun! The pilot was very personable and I could tell he enjoyed providing this experience and making people smile. The ride itself was very smooth and the views were amazing. I definitely got to see the city in a way I would not have been able to otherwise! I highly recommend this experience!

If I could give this tour 10 stars I would!! it is such an amazing experience and its how everyone visiting Reykjavik should see it. Our pilot Solveig not sure if that's the correct spelling but she was amazing, so informative and professional, and great fun to be around! such a lovely girl. Our experience was made even better when she popped open a bottle of champagne for us as we were celebrating my boyfriends 30th.

A-MAZ-ING from the check in to landing and everything in between.,could not be bettered. There were supposed to be 4 people on our tour, but the two other people did not show, so we had our own private tour. Our Pilot was so knowledgeable and landing on top of the mountain was awesome. Our photographs are brilliant and our pilot Pilu was an ambidextrous camera man , which impressed my daughter and I , immensely. A wonderful trip .
