See the famous Golden Circle from a perspective that not many other people do
Where we are going, we don’t need roads… Literally! We will be taking to the skies to show you the sights of the famous Golden Circle from a whole new perspective.
Extra stops (weather permitting)
Join us on an unforgettable trip to the golden circle which you will be able to see from a perspective that not many people can say they have seen!
After picking you up (not in the helicopter sadly) we will take you to the nearby domestic airport where we can strap you in and take you out of the city. We will see sights such as Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir and since we do not need any roads for our helicopters we can add to the tour (weather permitting) a landing on top of Langjökull (the Long Glacier) in the highlands of Iceland and a visit to a wilderness geothermal pool at Mount Hengill.
Þingvellir (or Thingvellir) is an area of great natural beauty but it also contains a strong historical significance to the country as a whole. Within this site you can see the location of the world's first parliament. The spot where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are separating as well as a number of other historical buildings. All of this and we have yet to even mention how stunning the nature is here!
The great Geysir is an erupting hot spring. The english word Geyser actually derives from the name Geysir as this was the first geyser to be mentioned in print in Europe. Sadly the great Geysir no longer erupts of its own power but thankfully there is a geyser called strokkur very close by that goes off fairly frequently.
Gullfoss, or the golden falls, is a huge waterfall that drops a staggering 32 meters over two stages. It is fed from the white river which originates from Iceland’s 2nd biggest glacier. More than just a pretty site though Gullfoss also has an amazing history that involves foreign investors trying to harness its power and one young girl's amazing efforts to preserve the nature.
Langjökull, or the “long glacier” is the second largest icecap in Iceland. It is also the closest glacier to the city of reykjavik and sits at 4,000 ft (1,200 m) above sea level and its melt waters travel through subterranean streams to feed Lake Þingvallavatn
