The Wonder of Snaefellsnes - Helicopter Tour

Ride over the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in this incredible helicopter tour.

4 Hours
Very easy
What to expect
A GATEWAY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH? There is something mystical about the Snæfellsnes peninsula with its mighty volcanic glacier Snæfellsjökull at the tip of it. Snæfellsjökull is one of the most famous sites of Iceland thanks to the novel “A Journey to the Centre of the Earth” by Jules Verne.
According to the novel, the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the Earth can be found right there. This area is the embodiment of Iceland. There are fishing villages along the northern coastline and the thousands of islands in the bay of Breiðafjörður, some colorful mountains, lush farming fields, large lava fields, volcanic craters and of course the mighty glacier/volcano.
Occasional landings are made on the way and a refreshment/meal stop at a nice countryside hotel. Journey time about 4 hours.

My husband and I booked the Geothermal Adventure tour with Reykjavik Helicopters and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Thorir, the Sales Rep we dealt with via email before the flight was quick and thorough in his responses. He also picked us up on the day of the flight and he was very friendly and efficient. David, the pilot, was also very friendly and knowledgeable, he pointed out many features of the landscape on the way and allowed us plenty of time at the stop to explore. We highly recommend this company to anyone looking for an amazing experience.

We dropped in on these guys last minute, our last day in Iceland and they were able to accommodate us - and what an amazing trip we took! The pilots were professionals but fun and super informative. I felt safe and well taken care of, and best of all my girlfriend and I have amazing vacation memories that will last a lifetime!

On our recent and amazing trip to Iceland, my boyfriend surprised me with my first ever helicopter ride. It was the best way to see an incredible country and we loved every minute of it. Reynir, the pilot, was very professional and competent with a great deal of knowledge about Iceland. Fridgeir, who organised everything and then acted as our guide, was charming. We can't thank you both enough for such a fabulous trip and we can't wait to come back!
