What to Expect
Make your own way to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport to begin your morning or afternoon tour. Meet your pilot and hop aboard your helicopter. Soar high over the Glymur waterfall and save hours of hiking as you admire the cascading torrent from the air. Land on the Thórisjökull glacier and explore the frozen landscape on foot. Here, enjoy views over the cracks and crevasses. Return to the skies and to Thingvellir National Park. Gaze out over the rugged countryside from the air, and see the continental rift of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Touch down for a second time in the Hengill geothermal area. Accessible only on foot or by helicopter, this remote valley is home to geothermal springs and bubbling mud pools. Afterward, return in comfort to your starting point at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport to conclude your tour.
