Overview
Iceland seduces travelers with uncanny landscapes of geysers, volcanoes, and glaciers. Most travelers view these sights from the ground. With this tour, access a vantage point others won't. Fly to a mountaintop near Reykjavik for a bird’s-eye view of the dramatic scenery. Choose a morning or afternoon flight to suit your schedule. The helicopter ride lasts about 20 minutes, leaving plenty of time for taking photos on the summit.

The Reykjavík Summit Tour in an outstanding weather with my daughter was excellent. The welcoming receptionist, the nice chopper and the pilot who knew all the landscape around Reykjavík made an unforgettable experience. Thank you Jean Marie, Vera, Iris and the fellow companion.
