Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with a helicopter tour of Iceland’s iconic landmarks. The tour begins with a visit to Þingvellir National Park, an important historical site and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to Iceland’s first democratic parliament, the Althingi, established in the year 930 AD. Visitors can enjoy breathtaking aerial views of the site’s geological marvels, including the Silfra rift and the Almannagjá fissure.
The tour continues with a visit to the Geysir Geothermal Area, where visitors can witness the power of the earth’s geothermal energy with the eruptions of the Great Geysir, boiling water up to 70 meters in the air. Marvel at the rainbow-colored pools of water in the midst of the geothermal landscape. The landing is dependent on weather conditions, but even the aerial views are a magnificent sight.
The helicopter tour then takes visitors to the Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area, a colorful area located in the Highlands of Iceland, with rhyolite mountains and soothing geothermal pools. Although landing is weather-dependent, the area’s natural beauty is undeniable, featuring vibrant and contrasting colors including reds, greens and yellows. Hiking enthusiasts can explore the natural beauty by hiking through Laugavegur trail that is home to unique landscape and picturesque views.
Next, visitors to the tour are transported to Þórsmörk, a nature reserve nestled amidst mountains, glaciers, and rivers. The heavily forested area is home to various wildlife, including rabbits, foxes, reindeers and bird species. Visitors get an incredible view of the valley and its lush vegetation from the helicopter. The Þórsmörk valley offers an escape to the beauty of Iceland’s wilderness and awe-inspiring landscapes.
The helicopter then takes visitors to the Eyjafjallajökull Glacier Volcano, the iconic landmark known for its beauty and eruption in 2010. While weather-dependent, landing at the site is an opportunity to witness Iceland’s geological wonders, surrounded by glaciers and ice caps, and to learn more about Iceland’s volcanic history. The helicopter tour ends with a visit to Gullfoss Waterfall cascading down in two stages into a deep canyon, a breathtaking view enjoyable from the air. The tour concludes at the Háifoss Waterfall, dropping down 122 meters into a gorge, a hidden gem for nature enthusiasts.
Exploring Iceland’s iconic landmarks by helicopter is a unique and unforgettable experience.
Þingvellir National Park
Þingvellir National Park is often the first stop on an Icelandic site tour by helicopter. Þingvellir, founded in 1930, has a lot of historical and geological importance. In 930 A.D., the Althingi, Iceland’s first democratic government, met there. The Almannagjá crack, the Silfra rift, and the Oxarárfoss waterfall are all signs of its volcanic past. Even if the helicopter can’t land because of the weather, tourists can still get a beautiful view of Þingvellir ‘s natural beauty from above, including the plains and mountains. This ancient park has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which makes sense. Þingvellir National Park is a must-see for nature and history lovers, whether on the ground or in the air.
Geysir Geothermal Area
The Geysir Geothermal Area is the second stop on a helicopter tour of Iceland’s most famous sites. It is a truly special place that shows how the earth’s heat and power work. Geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and steam vents are just a few of the volcanic features in the area. The Great Geysir, one of the world’s oldest geysers, is especially amazing because it shoots boiling water up to 70 meters high. Landing at the Geysir Geothermal Area depends on the weather. However, tourists can still see the amazing beauty of the area from above by looking at the rainbow-colored pools of water in the middle of the geothermal landscape. The Geysir Geothermal Area is still a must-see for tourists who want to see Iceland’s natural attractions.
Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area
Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area is a beautiful place in the Highlands of Iceland. It is known for its colorful rhyolite rocks and geothermal pools. As the third stop on a helicopter tour of Iceland’s famous sites, the area is a fascinating look at the country’s natural beauty. Landing at Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area, however, depends on the weather. The area can be covered in snow for much of the year, and the winds can be hard to predict. But even from above, the area’s natural beauty is clear, with colors like red, green, and yellow that stand out and contrast. People like to hike in this area, and the Laugavegur trail, which leads there, is considered one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world. Even though you can’t land there, the Landmannalaugar Geothermal Area is still a highlight of any trip to Iceland because it gives tourists a unique look at the country’s amazing natural beauty.
In the south of Iceland, there is a wildlife reserve called órsmork. Mountains, glaciers, and rivers surround it. It is the fourth stop on a helicopter tour of Iceland’s most famous sites. It is a beautiful contrast to the geothermal areas. The area has a lot of trees and is home to many animals, such as bears, reindeer, rabbits, and many different kinds of birds. Landing at órsmork can be hard to predict because of the weather. Still, the view from the helicopter of the valley’s lush greenery is amazing. A trip to órsmork is a great way to see how beautiful Iceland’s wilderness is and how amazing its scenery is.
Eyjafjallajökull Glacier Volcano
The Eyjafjallajokull Glacier Volcano is a famous sight on Iceland’s southern coast. It is known for its stunning beauty and for erupting violently in 2010. Landing at the spot, the fifth stop on a helicopter tour depends greatly on the weather. The volcano towers over the surrounding scenery and is surrounded by glaciers and ice caps, giving visitors a breathtaking view of Iceland’s active geology. Even though landing conditions are only sometimes sure, a helicopter tour of the Eyjafjallajokull Glacier Volcano is a great way to see Iceland’s natural wonders and learn more about the country’s volcanic past.
The Gullfoss Waterfall is a natural wonder in the southwest of Iceland. It falls in two stages into a deep canyon. It is a favorite place for tourists to go in Iceland. As the sixth stop on a helicopter trip, the waterfall is an amazing sight to see from the air. In the summer, when the glacier runoff is at its highest, Gullfoss Waterfall is especially impressive. This famous place is a must-see for anyone who wants to see Iceland’s natural beauty.
The Háifoss Waterfall is a secret gem in the south of Iceland. It is on the Fossá River. It is one of the country’s largest waterfalls, falling 122 meters into a deep gorge. As the last stop on a helicopter tour, guests can get to the waterfall from the air and see it from a bird’s-eye view. The area around it is also beautiful, with steep hills, amazing rock formations, and many different kinds of birds. The Háifoss Waterfall is great if you like nature and want to do something different in Iceland.
