This tour is perfect for adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts who want to explore Iceland's most iconic geological wonders.

Your journey begins at Reykjavik Domestic Airport, which sits right by the city center. You'll receive a briefing before your friendly pilot shows you onboard the helicopter for an exciting takeoff.

Once you're up in the air, watch the urban views of Reykjavik quickly give way to the breathtaking natural sights of Iceland. 

Marvel at the rough yet magical volcanic landscapes that make Iceland so famous. Each volcanic crater you pass over will leave you awestruck, with each one seemingly more impressive than the last. Take the chance to peek into a crater from your helicopter and witness its complete glory - an exceptional view you won't soon forget!

Continue your adventure as you fly over the rugged coastline of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Your pilot will expertly land the helicopter amidst a crater in the middle of a lava field, providing you with the perfect opportunity to capture some awe-inspiring photographs. Take a moment to soak in the fresh ocean air and savor the surreal surroundings.

The highlight of this tour is the landing at Eldvorp volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula in the southwest of the island. Eldvorp is a seven-mile (10-kilometer-long) crater row that showcases extensive geothermal activity, with steam rising from the earth. The combination of the rugged coastline and the billowing steam will make you feel like you've landed on another planet entirely!

Throughout the tour, you'll also catch glimpses of the Seltun geothermal area, the enchanting Blue Lagoon, and the mesmerizing Lake Kleifarvatn. 

Moreover, you'll witness the remarkable craters from the Fagradalsfjall volcanic eruption, which occurred in March 2021 and lasted for an astounding six months. It's an extraordinary display of the untamed power that has sculpted Iceland's rugged beauty.

This helicopter tour is a 55 to 75-minute excursion featuring a 40 to 60-minute guided helicopter flight with a 15-minute landing by a steaming crater. The tour is subject to variations depending on the type of helicopter and weather conditions.
