Reykjavik Summit Helicopter Tour | Icelandair
Pingdom Check

Experience Reykjavík's cityscape and mountain views on the Reykjavík Summit tour. Fly above the vibrant city, enjoy panoramic ocean views, and optionally land on a nearby summit for a closer look at Iceland's natural beauty.

A short-and-sweet exploration of Reykjavík's vibrant cityscape and the mountains that surround the world’s northernmost capital. As we take off smoothly from the airport, you'll see how quickly the city gets smaller and smaller beneath us, with every turn of the helicopter's wings. Further into the tour we land on a nearby summit where you'll have the chance to capture a silent panorama of the vast blue ocean that hugs the city shore and catch sight of the small islands scattered in the distance.

You'll see the crumbling mountains behind you that, with their grandeur, might simply take your breath away... as well as the steaming volcanic hillsides that give this “Smokey Bay” its nickname. From the top of the mountain you'll gaze over quaint and colourful settlements that sprawl out in the distance and into the vast Arctic and beyond. Needless to say, this sightseeing tour will leave you feeling more acquainted to Iceland and it's majestic landscape.

The total duration of the tour is 40-45 minutes, including guided helicopter flight and a 15 minute landing on a nearby mountain.
