We have taken over a dozen helicopter tours, in various cities and countries. This tour was the best by far! The booking and communication with the company before arrival was easy and the company quick and responsive. Pick up at the cruise port was easy, and right on time. The views are spectacular! The volcano crater and landing on the glacier just awesome. We landed and had time to view the Geysir. The waterfall from the air is breathtaking. Seeing the country and terrian from the air is the best. Our pilot, Reynir, was informative, friendly, funny, and helped make the experience great! Thanks Reynir! This is the best way to see Reykjavik and fantastic trip to enjoy. Treat yourself, the value for this tour, makes in worth every dollar! or Euro, or Kroner

I can't say enough great things about this company. We took the geothermal helicopter tour. Truly an amazing experience. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. our pilot Reynir was a true professional and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend taking a tour with them.

When we booked our Geothermal Adventure at the tourist information centre, Reykjavik Helicopters was the last company Nicole rang, as the others were fully booked. I'm so glad they were, because we got the same tour for less money AND we were picked up and dropped off at the cruise ship for FREE. We would have had to make our own way to the airport and back if we had booked with one of the other 2 companies. On top of this, the pilot and owner were very friendly and knowledgeable, offering interesting information throughout the trip. We had an hours flight with a stop off at the geysers, where we were given plenty of time to explore and take pictures. The pilot flew us close to the ground for fun and hovered over volcanoes whilst we took pictures. This was the highlight of my holiday and I couldn't recommend these guys enough!

Reykjavik Helicopters provided a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Everything went very smoothly from the time of the booking to the time we got dropped off at our hotel after the flight.
Karl, our pilot was very knowledgeable, experienced, kind, very professional. The flight was extremely smooth and the vistas are unforgettable.
Will book again in a heartbeat.

My wife and two kids (9,11) went on our first helicopter ride with Fridgear and his crew and loved it. Helicopter rides are not cheap so for us it was a once in a life time event and well worth it. You cannot appreciate the landscape of Iceland without getting into the air. The whole operation is very professionally run with a very well maintained helicopter a very experienced safe conscious pilot. Fridgear himself is a gentleman and delivered what he said he would deliver - one great experience!!!! I wish him well and recommend you don't leave Iceland without going on a helicopter ride with him.
