All about the trip
This 20-minute helicopter trip begins by ascending high above the beautiful Icelandic capital of Reykjavik. Below you a patchwork-quilt of colourful houses slowly-stretches out into the distance, along with the clear, blue waters of Faxaflói Bay (nicknamed ‘The Smokey Bay’). If you’re lucky, it is even possible to see orcas and humpback whales breaching the surface of the sea below.
Of course, it is also impossible to miss the unique architecture of the Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral as we float high-up into the clouds. Just as impossible to miss are the panoramic views of Iceland’s many mountain ranges, and further into the tour, this is where we will land briefly so that you can have a chance to take some awesome photos from a lesser-known spot.
Crumbly, snow-capped mountains, glaciers and steamy volcanic ridges are of course what give the Icelandic landscape its distinct look, and you will be able to see them for as far as the eye can see. From above Reykjavik you will easily be able to see the Esjan, the Keilir (shaped like a cone), the Akrafjall, and a local favourite, the Snæfellsjökull.
With so much to see in all directions, please do remember to charge your camera batteries and bring an extra memory card with you. We know from first-hand experience that you will want to take more photos than you originally intended! Also, don’t forget to bring some sunglasses too, as it can get quite bright when flying over Reykjavik on summer days.
Remember to arrive 30 mins earlier than the flight time as there will be a briefing on helicopter safety from your pilot, and due to Iceland’s eclectic weather conditions, please be advised that for safety reasons, weather conditions could delay or postpone your flight. As with all helicopter flights, safety is priority number one.
