Fire and Ice Helicopter Tour from Reykjavik
From US$1,059.34
Low Price Guarantee
Iceland is a landscape of cascading waterfalls and bubbling lava fields—and the best way to see it is from the air. Save hours of hiking by helicoptering directly on the remote Thórisjökull glacier and in the Hengill geothermal area. Soar over natural attractions including Glymur waterfall and Thingvellir National Park. Cover a huge expanse of land efficiently by helicopter and admire the scenery from the skies.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport to begin your morning or afternoon tour. Meet your pilot and hop aboard your helicopter. Soar high over the Glymur waterfall and save hours of hiking as you admire the cascading torrent from the air.
Land on the Thórisjökull glacier and explore the frozen landscape on foot. Here, enjoy views over the cracks and crevasses.
Return to the skies and to Thingvellir National Park. Gaze out over the rugged countryside from the air, and see the continental rift of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
Touch down for a second time in the Hengill geothermal area. Accessible only on foot or by helicopter, this remote valley is home to geothermal springs and bubbling mud pools.
Afterward, return in comfort to your starting point at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport to conclude your tour.

I wanted to thank all the teams and the pilot Sam for making me dream that day. An extraordinary moment.. it's their slogan "if you do one thing in iceland - do this” it's true and really perfect. I recommend her on trust
