A fabulous trip to the Geothermal mountain sides with our pilot Jon. We flew in an 8 man copter and there were great views from every seat (you sit in 2 x rows of 4 - ask if you can join the pilot in the front - another bloke on our trip did and flew half the second half of the trip in the front!)
This tour was incredible. The area that we landed in was very picturesque. During the trip I proposed to my girlfriend of nine years. Our pilot Eggert was very knowledgeable of the island and anything that we had questions about. I would definitely fly with Nordurflug again!
Very professional operation, expertly narrated and flown by very experienced pilot. Great way to see the sights from a unique perspective -- from above and then up close. First flight for my son, who loved it. I have a couple of thousand flight hours as an Army flight surgeon and I could tell these guys knew what they were doing. Great!
Booked geothermal tour but bad weather so had volcano tour instead. INCREDIBLE experience. FAB staff. AWESOME views. We were the only people on our flight and on the volcano we landed on. We loved having a snowball fight on top of the volcano and swooping over the sea. BEST TRIP EVER
Highlight of the trip! Our pilot, Gisli Gislason shared an incredible amount of knowledge that enhanced the visuals of the trip.
The helicopter tour was the highlight of the trip! The view over the city was phenomenal, and the pilot landed and gave us plenty of time to walk around and take pictures. Well worth the price!
Wow! Just wow! As if seeing Iceland's spectacular scenery wasn't enough, I've now done it from above in a helicopter flown by a pilot who just happened to have been flying when the aerial photography for films like Walter Mitty and Prometheus was done! And he was such a nice friendly man: happy to chat about whatever we asked him. We got to fly over a massive geothermal power plant (much more interesting than it sounds) and land beside a steaming, bubbling, boiling geothermal pool and dip our fingers in a pleasantly warm stream. And the moment when the pilot used the helicopter to generate clouds of steam from the pool was just sensational. Oh, and just as a bonus, because the weather was so good, he landed on a volcano! Top that!

Absolutely incredible tour - Iceland is a country that must be seen from the air! The tour included some of the most spectacular scenery I've ever seen, and included a stop at a hot spring high up in the mountains. Wonderful experience. The pilot was so professional - he made flying the helicopter look easy! Can highly recommend this to anyone that wants to see the real beauty of this magnificent country.
Amazing staff and great experience. Was my first time in a helicopter and I'm hooked. Trip followed the pipeline to the geothermal plant and beyond. Pilot was friendly, informative and made the trip the highlight of my visit. Highly recommend this company and this trip.
This was a fantastic tour. Our pilot, Jon, was really friendly and knowledgable. It was our first time in a helicopter which was great fun but the geo thermals were amazing!
It was our first helicopter flight and the experience was fantastic. Due to bad weather our flight was delayed by a day but the staff and pilot pulled out all the stops to get the flight re-arranged for the earliest opportunity. The scenery from the flight was amazing and would highly recommend this trip.
Excellent tour, pilot was very informative. We could not fly in the morning as initially planned due to the weather however the flight was rescheduled for later that day
Great flight with good company. Tour was changed to Rykjavick City due to unsafe windy condition and partial refund was promissed. Great view of the city from up above.
This was unfortunately not on due to fairly constant rain in early October
