Discover Reykjavik from the sky on a panoramic helicopter flight and summit landing over the world's most northerly capital city.
Set off from the city and take in Iceland's vast landscape from the air with this panoramic helicopter flight and summit landing with views that stretch out towards the horizon and onto the aptly named, 'Smokey Bay'. From the top of the mountain, you'll gaze over quaint and colourful settlements that sprawl out in the distance and into the vast Arctic and beyond.
Situated at a helicopter base in the centre of Reykjavik's vibrant cityscape - a five-minute drive or 30-minute walk, the base is on the East side of Reykjavik Domestic Airport. There is a bus station close to the location called Nauthólsvegur. Top attractions and landmarks in Reykjavik include the Golden Circle, Harpa Concert Hall, and Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral.
A short but sweet scenic flight over the bustling city of Reykjavik, this 30-minute helicopter flight includes a short landing on a nearby mountain to ensure you really experience the true wilderness that lives outside of the city limits. Setting off from the base in a 4, 5 or 8 person helicopter, this flight can be organised for individuals as part of a group or privately. A convenient and scenic tour for anyone staying in the city centre, you'll have the chance to capture a silent panorama of the vast blue ocean that hugs the city shore - all the way out to “Smokey Bay” and the vast Arctic beyond.
