If you have researched visiting Iceland and all the tours available, you must have come across the Golden Circle tour. Well, instead of travelling by minibus, car or hiking, this essential Iceland helicopter tour will not only save you time but present the best Iceland has on offer, from an alternative perspective.
You will spend half a day flying between Iceland’s main attractions, with two landings as part of the trip. Your helicopter sets off from the city’s main local airport, where you will receive a safety briefing before taking off.
The tour has been specially crafted to provide a bird’s eye view of the stunning landscape that is Iceland. Every turn of your seat in the sky reveals even more breathtaking and fascinating sights to behold, from glaciers to volcanoes and hot springs to waterfalls.
This tour is concise and straight to the point. It takes you to the culturally and historically important places in Iceland, without having to hike miles to access the remote glaciers and waterfalls. The initial stages of the tour involve an aerial appreciation of the birthplace of modern Iceland, Þingvellir and takes you on a journey of discovery to Geysir. Here, you will see nature’s power at work, as well as appreciate man’s ingenuity at tapping this natural resource for clean energy.
The heady mountains of Landmannalaugar are nearly always in view as you make the journey to the infamous Eyjafjallajökull, whose 2010 eruption caused chaos across Europe.
Iceland is famous for its majestic waterfalls. The next part of the helicopter tour will see you trace a little-known trail of waterfalls as they cascade down from the lofty heights of basalt mountains to the coastline. The essential Iceland helicopter tour is simply a must!
If you take the tour during the summer months, from May to September, you will enjoy a lunch stop in the Thorsmörk Valley, too. Finally, your helicopter will bank right as you follow the coastline back towards the built-up environment of the capital city.
This ultimate tour of the world famous sights of Iceland compresses the excitement and delivers it in a single, explosive, adrenaline-filled package.
Experience the sights and sounds of natural Iceland as you visit Þingvellir National Park, marvel at the steamy hot springs and mud bubbling mud pots of the Geysir Geothermal Area, Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area, Þórsmörk, and the Eyjafjallajökull Glacier Volcano.

Thank you. This trip was unbelievable. Very exciting. Family love Iceland and this we are going to return to do again.
This is a once in a lifetime experience which you will probably not experience anywhere else in the world. I treated my parents to this trip for the 50th anniversary. They had tears of joy in amazement. It's expensive but the tour is worth much much more!
