Fire and Ice by Helicopter

This epic aerial adventure begins with an overview of Reykjavik, before witnessing the stunning Glymur waterfall. Fly towards a glacier and land for a refreshing stroll, then head to lovely Thingvellir National Park for its snow-capped mountain peaks. This Reykjavik tour is ideal for travelers who demand the extraordinary.

A certified pilot will first fly you above Reykjavik. Then accelerate towards the Glymur waterfall, pouring pristine waters 650 feet below into the Hvalfjordur (fjord), and fly towards a nearby glacier. When you touch down on an area accessible only by helicopter, step out onto the ice and breath in some of the freshest alpine air on earth.

Thereafter, you'll be whisked away toward the colorful mountain ranges at Thingvellir National Park. UNESCO declared the park a World Heritage site in 2004, and you'll instantly know you're in the midst of rare, natural beauty.

When your pilot flies above the hot, bubbling water flowing down the rugged slopes of the Hellisheidi mountain range, you'll clearly see why locals call this "Steam Valley." Reykjavik loosely translates to "Bay of Smoke," due the continental rift separating America and Europe, which produces tectonic plate activity responsible for its volcanic eruptions. Explore the geothermal area Hengill, where you land for a refreshing stroll around the bubbling hot springs.

With the wind in your hair, you'll then return to Reykjavik. This is the ideal outing to book for adventure, exhilaration, and phenomenal natural beauty.
