Tour Details

This epic adventure in the Golden Circle's geothermal areas first flies you above the hot springs and power plants in Hellisheidi, then lands in a secluded area on the Hengill volcano. Thereafter, you'll fly above the city of Reykjavik for amazing vantage points. This spectacular adventure is ideal for the traveler demanding a unique perspective of Iceland.

Your certified pilot will first fly toward the picturesque Hellisheidi (a town famed for its hot springs and delicate flowers). 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 to the continental rift separating America and Europe, which produces tectonic plate activity responsible for its volcanic eruptions.

Then you'll touch down at a secluded area on the Hengill volcano. While its last eruption occurred nearly 2,000 years ago, it's a vital energy source today, fueling the Nesjavellir power station. The returning flight offers stellar views of the bustling city of Reykjavik. Reserve your seat for an exhilarating and informative journey on this Reykjavik tour.
