We take off from Reykjavik Airport and watch the colorful houses of Reykjavik get smaller beneath us as we aim for the Hengill geothermal area. While flying out of Reykjavik, you might enjoy seeing some iconic sites of Reykjavik like Hallgrímskirkja Church and Harpa Concert Hall.
The Hengill geothermal area covers an area of about 100 km2, is one of the largest high-temperature geothermal zones in Iceland, and is connected to three volcanic systems. The last eruption in the area was over 2000 years ago, but the steaming fumaroles and many hot springs show that there is still lava close to the surface.
The area is an essential source of energy for the south of Iceland, with two power stations harnessing the energy at Hengill, Nesjavallavirkjun, and Hellisheiðisvirkjun power plants. The Hengill area consists of old lava fields, steaming hot springs and fumaroles, colorful mountains, geothermal power plants, and craters. We will land at a remote location to explore the raw and untamed area away from crowds. You will see boiling hot springs, enjoy the beautiful colors caused by the gases rising from the earth, and take some fantastic pictures to show your friends at home.
After enjoying the area, we hop onboard the helicopter again and take a striking return route, flying over mountains, valleys, and lava fields before landing at Reykjavik Airport.
