You’ll next walk onto the tarmac to your modern, sleek helicopter, which will be waiting for you to take off. Only five or six seats per craft will be available, ensuring a spectacular perspective and an intimate interaction with the volcano. Please remember that eruptions are a natural occurrence that may or may not be active during your visit. This eruption has occurred on the 19th of March, 2021. Relatively, this eruption is small-sized and has taken place on Reykjanes Peninsula. Its geographical location can be traced in Geldingadalir Valley some 20 miles away from Reykjavik. Before this eruption, the Reykjanes peninsula witnessed such eruptions in the 14th century AD. More Interestingly, some 50000 earthquake jolts have taken place following this eruption. It is a catastrophic scenario in the area. The experts of seismology maintain that this volcanic eruption is no less than a surprise. The reason is that meanwhile, the volcano eruption takes place, there was no seismic activity. Without such seismic activity, the eruption seems unlikely. However, the volcano erupted at this site, proving it to be a surprise for the seismic studies. A major benefit of a flying tour like this one is that you will be able to obtain the best view, away from the masses who have come here on foot, giving you a much more intimate experience while enjoying the best view. Remember our Heli tour will not provide you with landing at the site just to ensure the safety of our passengers. You’ll get some beautiful views of the environment surrounding Iceland’s capital as you loop around to the Reykjanes Peninsula, including the verdant Mount Esja and dazzling Faxafloi Bay.

We feel our passengers will get the best experience inside our helicopter. Be sure that our company is supposed to show you the lava scenes during this Icelandic helicopter tour. If the natural occurrence of lava does not take place during our flight, we are not responsible to carry on another flight or assume a new schedule. All of our flights are weather-dependent, and we must follow the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management’s rules and regulations to make our Icelandic helicopter tour for volcanoes secure

What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

I highly recommend this tour to all people willing to come to Iceland and see beautiful landscape. During this 6 day tour, I was able to visit most of the beautiful places along the ring road. I really liked the ice cave and the glaciar hiking. There are some other places that we visited which were not mentioned in the program such as Chrismas House and beautiful canyons, which I found very beautiful too. I am sure that this tour is perfect for those who want to see the beauty of Iceland within a short period of time. But this tour is also ideal to those willing to stay more in Iceland, because an 8 day tour is also available. Our guide Ionuț was very passionate and friendly, which made my trip even more pleasant.

I would definitely recommend a visit here the lifelike earthquake and volcano film are amazing. The animals are lifelike and Informative. The ice cave is actual real snow and ice make sure you wrap up warm its freezing in there. The sealife video is amazing. The 360 degree viewing from the deck is spectacular. They have a really nice place on the top floor for food and drinks including alcohol. My favourite activity was the aurora it is breathtaking I had to watch it twice. Definitely one of my favourite days.

Amazing trip from start to finish. Loved the snow bus trip up the glacier to the ice cave entrance. Guide excellent with lots of information and banter. Ice cave stunning with so much to take on. Trip back down fun too. Thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone

Fantastic guides! We were able to go higher on the glacier than I anticipated. All the while the guides make sure you are completely safe. Informative rest stops are taken on the way. Highly recommend.

I don’t think I have words to describe how wonderful this trip was.
