This wasn't just the highlight of my Iceland trip, it was the highlight of my year! Everyone was so friendly when we arrived and they even give you free beverages like coffee, soda and hot chocolate while you wait in the very comfortable before we left. I went on the Golden Circle Tour flying over Reykjavik, waterfalls, mountains.. it was... More

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

We were in Iceland for two weeks on a Home Exchange through "Intervac" and we must say that the Helo Helicopter ride was the highlight of our trip!! We were able to see so much from a different perspective and land on a glacier! The helicopter was new and "Top of the Line"!! We had a fabulous experience. We would... More

Treated the kids to the volcanic adventure trip. Great staff made sure we were well looked after the whole time. The helicopter took us up to where the volcano erupted not long ago. Very exciting being so close to it. Amazing views. We stopped close by and got the chance to feel the warmth of the ground even now. Kids... More

The owner was wonderful to work with in booking this excursion of a lifetime! The pilot was fantastic. Words and pictures could not do the morning justice. I would highly recommend this company.

We booked with Helo to celebrate two birthdays in the group, and it was such an amazing experience. It was a surprise for the two birthday girls, and the Helo guys played right along, pretending to be bus drivers, scuba instructors, etc. until the helicopter landed at the airport and everyone figured it out. I'd absolutely do this again, but... More

We had to walk 30' to the airport from the hostel in the centre of Reykjavik as they don't offer pick up service. You'd think for the amount of money you're paying they would at least offer that. The tour itself was great, but I think they could have squeezed in a bit more. That said, we opted for the... More

I've actually taken more than one tours with this company and it never seizes to amaze! The pilots and the entire crew behind the operation are professional and extremely polite. I will definitely be doing more business with them and I really look forward to it
