What You Can Expect

Reykjavik Helicopter Flight: Reykjanes Peninsula and Volcanic Landscapes

See the incredible Icelandic landscape from the air on a scenic helicopter tour

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 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, 1-hour flight, touch down back at the airport in Reykjavik and bid farewell to your pilot.

It was the highlight of our trip to Iceland - utterly fantastic. The staff were very cordial and most accommodating. Can't wait to go again.

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!

This was quite good and interesting seeing the craters from the air. We had upgraded to this flight but really we thought it was overpriced for what we saw.

Awesome. However, it covers much of the landscape seen on the Golden Circle drive.
