Geothermal Helicopter Tour
Enjoy our most popular tour over geothermal hot springs, colourful mountain ranges, power plants, lava fields and craters! Above that, land far away from the busier tourist areas to witness the raw, primeval energy rising up from the earth beneath. Start your trip from Reykjavik Domestic Airport, just 5 minutes drive from the centre of the city. Be ready to begin your trip with a fantastic view of Reykjavik area and watch it slip away as you make your way to colorful mountain ranges with hot springs right next to them. Continue your journey to area that is known for its lava fields and craters. Use the chance to peek into a crater from a helicopter! Where else are you able to be just above it while sitting in warmth and comfort. Later on you will be able to see Icelands power plants that Icelanders are so proud of, let our wise pilot describe you more about how it works. After landing in a stunning spot near hot springs, use the chance to take some breath-taking photos for a memory of a lifetime! The flight concludes with a flyover of Reykjavik to give an aerial overview of the city while we return to the starting point, Reykjavik Domestic Airport.
The total duration of the tour is 50-60 minutes. 25-50 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing by a remote geothermal area on an old volcano. Depending on helicopter type and weather
What do I need to bring
We recommend that you wear good shoes, warm jacket, a hat and gloves. It does cold not get cold inside the helicopter (similar to sitting in a car) but it can get cold and windy on Icelandic mountain tops.
