On this helicopter ride in Iceland, we fly over one of the most active volcanic areas in Iceland
Views of colorful basalt mountains, steaming hot springs and the geothermal power plants that supply Reykjavik with renewable energy
As we fly over one of the most active volcanic areas in Iceland, the Hellisheiði plateau, you will be able to see moss-covered lava plains that stretch out to the horizon and are interrupted by colorful basalt mountains, steaming hot springs and the geothermal power plants that supply Reykjavik with renewable energy.
On this helicopter ride in Iceland, we make sure to land outside the usual areas and away from the crowds, so we can experience the area's raw energy firsthand. When we land at the geothermal area Hengill - named after the volcano Hengill - you can witness the true and untouched Icelandic nature. We take you close to hot springs and boiling mud holes, and if it's summer, you might even be lucky enough to see some sheep roaming the valley. Be aware that this is not an ordinary tourist attraction - there are no safety ropes or the like. - the place is exactly as nature created it. Regardless of the season and time of the year, the area offers magical, colorful and beautiful views.
On the return trip, we make a scenic overflight of Reykjavik that allows you to observe the capital of Iceland from a unique bird's eye view.
Sights: Hellisheiði plateau, Hengill geothermal area, Nesjavallavirkjun, Hellisheiðarvirkjun, Bláfjöll mountain range, Reykjavik city, Kristnitaka lava plain and craters.
