Tour details

Iceland’s power from below is revealed from above as our helicopter journey takes us across geothermal pools, hot springs, lava fields, dormant craters and cutting-edge power plants including Hellisheiðavirkjun and Nesjavallavirkjun in the volcanic Hengill area. We’ll also enjoy a brief stop on land to get a firsthand look at the raw energy rising up from beneath our feet. Our flight concludes with a flyover of Reykjavik, where most homes, offices and even swimming pools are heated geothermally.

This tour starts and ends at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport, just minutes by taxi from downtown hotels
