Helo was a fantastic company to do a helicopter tour with.. We did the 5 hr Nature's Highlight Tour!! Nothing short of amazing.. They were also much more reasonable and responsive than the "Other Bigger Helicopter Group" in Reykjavik. It was worth every penny!!!!

Fabulous experience seeing the craters, steam vents and the coast line from the air. Simon, our pilot was full of information and we felt very safe and looked after! It was great to stop by a crater and have a walk around a place not accessible from the road. We would recommend this or any helicopter flight over Iceland as... More

We traveled the Golden Circle Experience a trip that took about 3 hours. Included was a stop on the glacier Langjökull and a stop in the geothermal area. The view from an exclusive Bell 407 with oversized windows was amazing and the pilot Gunnar was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable - the perfect pilot and guide ! Overall : A... More

A special mention to Kunar our pilot,very skilled and experienced...the lady at check in was great and we got an upgrade from a one hour thirty minute trip to 2 and a half for no... More

If you only do one thing in Iceland, make sure that treat yourself to a Helo helicopter tour. They have a smart new helicopter and the pilot was reassuringly in control. We had the most exhilarating and fabulously interesting morning of our lives on the golden circle tour. We experienced waterfalls, geysers, plate tectonic fault lines and fabulous views from...

I don't know how to compare this two hour ride because it was my first, BUT this was spectacular. Professional pilot in uniform. Clean modern jet helicopter and then an amazing flight including buzzing a nearby waterfall, landing on top of a glacier. And then land in a thermal area surrounded by hotspots, funerals and mud pots. Smooth and easy.... More

I scheduled this tour as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend. He had no idea what we were going to do. Gunnther was great in getting it scheduled and organized. Our pilot was skilled and professional, and it was clear he truly loved his job. We enjoyed hearing all about the sights we were seeing as we were flying over... More

For my daughter's birthday we took this helicopter flight to Thingvellir. Because of bad weather the route of the flight was slightly changed to the coastline, Seltun, a large lake, and the mountains, and we loved it! The pilot stopped for us at Seltun so we could walk around the area for 10 min and pointed out highlights. Very kind... More

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!
