Tour description

Get ready to witness the rugged and magical beauty of Iceland’s volcanic landscape like never before. As you soar above the moon-like Reykjanes peninsula, you’ll be awestruck by its sheer grandeur—a sight best appreciated from the air.

During the flight, you’ll see countless volcanic craters dotting the landscape, the relentless ocean stretching along the coast, the Seltún geothermal area with its steaming vents, the iconic Blue Lagoon, and the serene Lake Kleifarvatn and Lake Grænavatn. And no tour would be complete without a landing and time to explore—we’ll stop at Eldvörp on the Reykjanes Peninsula in the southwest. This 10 km long crater row boasts extensive geothermal activity, so you’ll witness steam rising from the earth, creating a surreal atmosphere that feels like landing on another planet entirely!

Last but certainly not least, you’ll catch glimpses of the majestic mountain Keilir and the remarkable craters from the Fagradalsfjall volcanic eruption, which lasted an impressive 6 months starting in March 2021. This tour showcases the untamed power that has sculpted Iceland into its rugged and breathtaking beauty.

Highlights of the tour include the Seltún Geothermal Area, Blue Lagoon, Lake Kleifarvatn, Lake Grænavatn, Eldvörp Crater, and the Geldingadalur eruption site—an experience that will leave you in awe of nature’s raw forces.

What's Included

  • 40-60 minute guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing by a steaming crater. Depending on helicopter type and weather.

Good to Know

  • We recommend that you wear good shoes, warm jacket, a hat and gloves. It does cold not get cold inside the helicopter (similar to sitting in a car) but it can get cold and windy on Icelandic mountain tops.
  • As with all helicopter tours, it is highly dependent on the weather, we may need to reschedule (full refunds/rebooking inluded)
