This was by far the best part of our trip to Iceland. It was 1.5 hours each direction plus 30-45 minutes of circling the volcano. We saw lave flowing and erupting like a fast flowing river. The pilot was incredibly nice. The views along the trip to the volcano were incredible. It was one of the coolest experiences I've ever... More

Our family of five took a private Golden Experience tour today. We were snowed in yesterday and thought we might miss much of Iceland's treasures. On this trip, we saw everything we'd hoped for and more. This tour was value for money in every respect. Our pilot, Reyin, listen to our interests and built them into our your. Brilliant day!

We had a wonderful and amazing sightseeing flight with Helo. We took the 2-1/2 hour Golden Experience tour and it was truly delightful to see some of the most beautiful sights in Iceland from this vantage point. The pilot was skilled, knowledgeable and entertaining. He pointed out all of the sights as we flew over and made sure to allow... More

We could not be more delighted with our helicopter excursion. The beauty of Iceland is remarkable as is the kindness of its people. The captain and co pilot were knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. This trip was one of the greatest experiences of our lives! Don't hesitate, book your flight!

I recommend this helicopter tour to anyone who wants to see the true beauty of Iceland. Windows in the helicopter are very large, so you can see really everything, the guide is very wise and friendly. After landing I'm sure you will want to do it again :)

This is an experience too beautiful for words so I added a several photos! When we arrived they had hot chocolate, tea and coffee available. Flying over Reykjavik is gorgeous but once you get out over the ocean and fly along the coast it is breathtaking, especially with the giant glass doors the thier Bell helicopter. I was so stunned...

A helicopter ride around the Golden Circle was the best way to end our fantastic Iceland adventure and the biggest highlight of the entire trip. It was fantastic to see the country from the air after driving around the entire ring road. Gunnpor greeted us warmly and offered us coffee, hot chocolate and water before our departure. Our pilot, Eggert... More

I took a private trip with business colleagues out over Pingvellir and the Mid Atlantic Ridge to Hengill, a geothermal thermal area with hot springs and fumaroles. Helo's helicopter is a Bell, which meant nothing to me beforehand, but whose principle characteristic is completely glazed doors giving you the most amazing views. We touched down on top of the volcano,... More
