Tour description


Enjoy our most popular tour that takes you over geothermal hot springs, colorful mountain ranges, power plants, lava fields, and craters! Even better, you’ll land far from the busy tourist spots to witness the raw, primeval energy rising from the earth.

Your adventure starts at Reykjavik Domestic Airport, just a 5-minute drive from the city center. Begin with a fantastic view of the Reykjavik area, then watch as it slips away and you make your way to the vibrant mountain ranges with hot springs nearby.

Continue your journey over areas known for their lava fields and craters. You’ll even get the chance to peek into a crater from the comfort of your helicopter seat—where else can you do that? Next, you’ll see Iceland’s impressive power plants and hear from our knowledgeable pilot about how they work.

After landing in a stunning spot near hot springs, take some breathtaking photos to capture this unforgettable experience. The tour wraps up with a flyover of Reykjavik, giving you an aerial overview of the city as we return to Reykjavik Domestic Airport.
