Trip Difficulty: ⅕ Easy | 1 x Landing stops (Mountain Summit)
Experience the bustling metropolis of Reykjavik like most people have never seen it. This quick, whistle-stop tour of one of the world’s most exciting cities, will take you from the concrete jungle to the snow-capped mountains surrounding it. The geology of the island is just one aspect you will enjoy on this trip.
The tour begins at the local airport, where you will undergo a pre-flight briefing before the helicopter lifts off and takes to the skies. As you gain altitude and the helicopter banks left and right, you will witness the city gradually getting smaller in size. Sit transfixed, as you make your way out of the city limits and into the countryside, your knowledgeable pilot will point out the interesting features and exciting landmarks of the city, before they get too small to recognise.
About 25 minutes later, you will set down on one of the many summits at the periphery of Europe’s Northernmost city. The summit has been carefully chosen for its spectacular panoramic views that will leave you speechless. A camera is a must on this tour, as the scenes, you will witness unfold before you are timeless memories waiting for you to capture them. Watch the vast blue colour of the ocean disappear as the city appears to rise from the sea and the myriad of islands dotted in the distance.
The timeless peaks all around you all have a story to tell if only they could speak. Marvel at the steam rising off the volcanic slopes of the historic hills and witness first hand where “Smokey Bay” gets its name.
The vibrant colours, the sounds and the scents of nature are waiting for you at the summit. From the top of the mountain, let your eyes feast over the great scenery all around you and as far as the eye can see. Surrender yourself to the moment and savour every single second of your time here as you gaze across the Arctic and beyond.
This tour is available throughout the year. Trips run seven days a week, Monday through to Sunday with morning and afternoon departures.
This was our first time on a helicopter and to be lucky enough to experience the Reykjavik summit as the first was absolutely inspiring for more helicopter adventures. Simply love it!
Amazing helicopter tour. Lots of great history and view points highlighted. Just wish it lasted longer, but nevertheless loved it and would do it again 🙂
