Although Iceland is relatively compact, some of its finest sights can be difficult to reach by car or foot, with a comprehensive tour tough to do in anything less than a few days. However, when travelling by helicopter, many of those hurdles instantly disappear. So as well as enjoying fantastic scenery from above, you’ll be skipping out most of the time consuming travel.
This helicopter tour includes trips to many of Iceland’s famous landmarks, including the historically and geographically significant Þingvellir National park, the mighty Geysir, epic waterfalls like Gullfoss and Háifoss, as well as Landmannalaugar, þórsmörk, Fimmvörðuháls, and the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
Over the course of the day we will spend hours admiring Iceland’s beauty from the air, and make several stops in places that would otherwise be impossible to reach. This offers keen photographers the chance to capture dramatic spectacles from a up high along with close ups from ground level.
The tour also includes an English-speaking guide and a stop at a countryside hotel for refreshments and/or a gourmet meal.
