So you’re planning a trip to Iceland. First up, great choice! But have you considered one simple way of taking your adventure to the next level? Why not organise your own helicopter tour and see the best sites from a bold, breathtaking perspective?
We get it. A helicopter tour might, at first, sound a bit over the top. But the sad truth is that there is so much spectacular scenery in Iceland that many visitors come and go having barely scratched the surface. This isn’t necessarily because it’s a huge place. In fact, Iceland probably has more natural wonders per square mile than anywhere else in the world.
A helicopter tour might, at first, sound a bit over the top. But the sad truth is that there is so much spectacular scenery in Iceland that many visitors come and go having barely scratched the surface. This isn’t necessarily because it’s a huge place. In fact, Iceland probably has more natural wonders per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Having said that, it’s not always easy to reach all the best locations, especially during what for many is too short a trip. A helicopter offers a safe and speedy way of getting around, and the views aren’t too bad either!
So that’s the logical argument for organising a helicopter tour with us. But it’s perhaps the romantic argument that makes the most sense. Let’s face it, Iceland is an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime destination. Why wouldn’t you want to make your trip all the more magical with a helicopter tour? From active volcanoes to ethereal glaciers, outrageous views of Iceland’s most exclusive locations are just moments away.
Form the mystical northern lights to the ancient fault line through the Þingvellir National Park, much of Iceland’s best sights are at your fingertips as soon as you arrive. However, there’s no doubt that some parts of Iceland are best appreciated from the air. Remember Eyjafjallajökull, the cheeky volcano that brought European air traffic to a standstill a while back? Have you heard of the desolate, mountainous landscapes of the Snæfellsnes peninsula? How about the world famous glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón? Well, all can be enjoyed from above.
Iceland is a place for unforgettable memories, and photography is a big part of each and every helicopter tour. As well as having the country’s incredible geology and landscapes whizzing past beneath you, our pilots can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go and are unparalleled when it comes to finding the perfect views of each landmark.
So pack your camera, get ready to shoot some unbelievable footage, and enjoy the ride of a lifetime!
All of the below helicopter tours are established routes that we run around Iceland. However, we are more than happy to work out a private trip for you that meets your personal needs and ticks all of the scenic boxes you can think of.
Luxury tours are our speciality, so we often provide clients with transport for helicopter trips combined with skiing, photography, hiking and fishing.

You get the idea. Whatever you can think of, we’re always happy to work something out and make your helicopter trip in Iceland as memorable as possible.
