Take a helicopter tour in Iceland

Soar over the houses and iconic sights of Reykjavík. Witness glaciers, volcanoes, and lagoons beneath your feet. Then land on a snow-covered mountain.

On a helicopter tour of Iceland, you can do exactly that and more. With your captain and expert guide, you’ll be shown the most incredible parts of Iceland from above. It’s a thrilling ride with simply incomparable views.

What does a crater, glacier, or lagoon like from above? There’s only one way to find out. Only an Iceland helicopter tour can show you these mind-blowing views.

Most helicopter tours start from Reykjavík, Iceland’s capital. You’ll take off from the city’s domestic airport and fly above the most famous landmarks, including Hallgrímskirkja church and the Harpa concert hall. Enjoy the colourful houses and magnificent views over the fjord too.

As your helicopter leaves the city, the landscape unfolds beneath you. Witness rolling hills, fields, and lakes, before touching down on an isolated mountain summit. It goes without saying that you should make sure you pack your camera!

Alternatively, see Iceland’s volcanoes and craters on a helicopter tour of Reykjanes or the Golden Circle. It’s a unique way to see these volcanic landscapes.

Most helicopter tours last for about an hour, including the time you spend on the mountain. But start times are flexible and that will be confirmed closer to your tour, depending on vehicles and weather conditions.

Of course, you should be aware that all helicopter rides are weather dependent. While the air temperature doesn’t affect the flight—as there’s heating onboard—it will be affected by visibility and wind. So, if there’s heavy rain or snow, we may need to reschedule.
