Very friendly, staff, professional. They struggled with the weather for our flight, being delayed on 3 occasions but they came through and what a great flight! The topography was awesome, flying over the active volcano was the best. An experience of a lifetime. Would we do it again with them, yes, at the drop of a hat we would be back to do it again.

Fabulous! This experience was worth every penny, so don't hesitate. The opportunity to see an erupting volcano from the air was beyond compare. Everyone at Atlantsflug was very professional and friendly, and we felt we were in good hands at all times.

We did a combo flight. First, we did the active Volcano, what an incredible sight!! This is a MUST DO, it is hard to hike and get to the crater as we realized on our first day when we did the 2mile hike. You get the lava flow, but because the lava has pushed out from the volcano’s crater so far it has cut off the easier trails and those with the best abilities can get a somewhat of a “decent view”. To get the real view and the best shots, this is the WAY TO SEE THE LAVA! Best views without mega camera shots/angles. Note: this was our first time in the helicopter! Gudjon (our pilot) was incredible, he has a ton of experience and definitely made everyone feel safe. Second flight - series we did the glacier / continental rift divide! Gudjon even took us to the glacier for a landing, this was great to be able to walk on the glacier & drink water without the hike. Plus, we landed on a glacier further out where no traffic goes, so it was very peaceful & truly magnificent. Flying over the National park was also incredible to see the continental divide/rift from the air. He explained everything and we saw how extensive the rift really is… much more appreciative from the air than the ground. I highly recommend using this group! We will definitely be back in the future and hope to do some more touring with them! Thanks from USA

CJ and Athor were fantastic! My family of five were treated to a great tour. Athor drove the boat, it was fast, fun, and played great music while the boat was moving. CJ showed us the different islands, rock formations and what local history and folklore were. They provided warm protective clothing which made the ride enjoyable. I would highly recommend a ribsafari if you visit the Vestmannaeyjar Island.

We had a wonderful experience on the Blue Dragon Ice Cave Tour with Atlantsflug. First, leading up to the tour Atlantsflug was very responsive to all of my emails. The tour itself was really great, a beautiful helicopter ride over the glacier and a 1hr tour through two amazing ice caves. One huge benefit of this tour is that the ice cave is not easy to access by foot or car so you don't have large crowds, in our experience we were the only people there. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun and unique experience.

Thank you for the positive review, we are thrilled you enjoyed the ice cave. Fun fact: The Blue Dragon ice cave is fact inaccessible by car and a pretty long hike if someone wanted to go by foot.
