Catch a glimpse of the rough but magical beauty Iceland’s volcanic landscape is known for. As you soar above the moonlike Reykjanes peninsula you will get to truly appreciate its grandeur – something only possible from air. You will see countless volcanic craters, the unforgiving ocean lining the coast, the Seltún geothermal area, the Blue Lagoon, Lake Kleifarvatn and Lake Grænavatn.

Of course, no tour would be complete without a landing and time to explore… on this tour we stop at Eldvörp on the Reykjanes Peninsula in the southwest of the island. It is a 10 km long crater row that contains extensive geothermal activity so you will always see steam rising from the earth. This combination of rugged coastline and rising steam will make it feel like you’ve landed on another planet entirely!

Last but not least you will get a glimpse of mountain Keilir as well as the remarkable craters from the Fagradalsfjall volcanic eruption, which erupted in March 2021 and lasted for 6 months.

This tour truly shows the untamed power that has sculpted the island into its rugged beauty.

Hotel transfer is not included in the Reykjavik summit tour and you must make your own way to the helipad. We are located at Reykjavik domestic airport; Nauthólsvegur 58D right next to Icelandair Hotel Natura.
