Mountain Helicopter Tour with Summit Landing from Reykjavik

Iceland seduces travelers with uncanny landscapes of geysers, volcanoes, and glaciers. Most travelers view these sights from the ground. With this tour, access a vantage point others won't. Fly to a mountaintop near Reykjavik for a bird’s-eye view of the dramatic scenery. Choose a morning or afternoon flight to suit your schedule. The helicopter ride lasts about 20 minutes, leaving plenty of time for taking photos on the summit.

Came to Iceland with a primary goal of seeing the new Volcano. Signed up with Nordurflug as a result of the reviews. Visited the volcano on June7th, flying out of downtown. About a 15 minutes from downtown, around the volcano, watching it from the air. Bonus! We landed on a hill very very close to the volcano and stayed to watch it erupt about 4 times…Wow! A lifetime highlight! David was the pilot and did a great job! A story and memory for a lifetime!

When they say that they deeply care that all their customers walk out of their office with a smile, they really mean it. As soon as I learned that Iceland was lifting restrictions for vaccinated traveler I booked a 24h stopover in Reykjavik, with the main purpose to go see the volcanic eruption. I called to book a flight and they did the best they could to squeeze me in at the time I requested while several other companies I talked to simply said they were sold out. On the day of the flight, the rest of the people that were supposed to be on the same flight canceled last minute, leaving me as the only passenger. Unfortunately my schedule was quite tight and joining a flight at a different time that day was not possible. Vera took the matter to heart and did everything she could to get approval to operate the flight even if it was with only me onboard. Operational costs of a turbine helicopter are quite high and I doubt that the flight broke even. This is particularly remarkable, especially after one year and a half of hardship due to the pandemic. I learned when I came back that finding me a spot in the first place at the only date and time that I was available required quite some work due to the very long waiting list. Needless to say, the flight was spectacular and I definitely left with a smile! I really wish them the best, now that tourism is reopening!

It was the first time we (family of 3 including a 2 year old) flew in helicopter. Absolutely loved it :) Great experience! The pilot (Jean Marie) was great and explained a bit how to land a helicopter during a wind. Totally recommend this or other longer helicopter "rides" with Norðurflug.

My husband and I took a Reykjavik Summit tour on a beautiful sunny August day (on our wedding anniversary), and what a perfect tour it was! Reykjavik by air was amazing, and the views from the landing site at Stóri Bolli were spectacular! This was my first helicopter tour, and I was a bit stressed before taking off, but that stress evaporated fast, and the ride was smooth and enjoyable! I recommend to the fullest a tour with Nordic Helicopter Tours!
