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

First time helicopter flight for both of us and what a place to do it! We only decided the day before to book a flight with helo.is (Helicopter Service of Iceland) knowing the weather forecast was good and seeing the choppers flying past our window occasionally from the Natura Hotel next to Reykjavik Airport we did a little bit of...

We took a helicopter ride from HELO in their Bell 407 with Johann as our pilot and it was unforgettable and amazing. The modified windows on the aircraft really make a difference in viewing. They picked us up at our hotel so we didn't have to drive back to Reykjavik. We saw the waterfall in Glymur. We flew to the... More

Such a bunch of time wasters! We had booked in to use them for our trip, and each time unfortunately the weather had forced cancellations, which isn't a problem. But it would have been good to have some kind of communication from them to tell us this information. We wasted hours waiting to hear from them after being told they... More
