Overview
Iceland is a landscape of cascading waterfalls and bubbling lava fields—and the best way to see it is from the air. Save hours of hiking by helicoptering directly on the remote Thórisjökull glacier and in the Hengill geothermal area. Soar over natural attractions including Glymur waterfall and Thingvellir National Park. Cover a huge expanse of land efficiently by helicopter and admire the scenery from the skies.

Exellent trip to mountain Esja - with 2 teenagers - they loved it and also the old couple - 75 and 76 years old. None of us ever in a helicopter before. The weather was beautiful and the pilot very helpful and showed us around. All service good and easy. Many thanks.

Amazing tour! From the moment I made the booking to the moment we made the tour the staff was so lovely and our pilot Jean Marie was really the best one! We enjoyed every single second of this tour and for sure next time we will be in Iceland we will fly again with Nordurflug!
