Flight above 5000 year old lava field and magnificently eternal surroundings dotted with boiling mud pots and stunning hydrothermal features in all the colors of the rainbow. This Iceland helicopter tour starting from Reykjavik brings you to one of the most interesting geothermal areas of Iceland.



Tour Description Iceland helicopter tour:

In 2008 a new hot spring area, situated in the hillside above the town Hveragerði, broke through the ground in the earthquake. Several very active hot springs can be seen during this tour that throw colorful mud and clear water in the air – a spectacular sight that should not be missed. Flying above Hveragerði also gives you spectacular views over the greenhouses.

An experienced pilot will make this flight a first class experience together with an unforgettable lesson on geothermal power. Landing far away from the crowds to witness the raw, primeval energy rising up from the earth is guaranteed. Finally your flight path concludes with a flyover of Reykjavik to give you an aerial overview of the city.

There can not be many towns in the world with hot springs literally in peoples back yard. Hveragerði is built above a hot spring field and derives its name from the Icelandic word for hot spring – hver. The natural hot water is used for space heating, for cooking, baking and laundry. Geothermal heat in abundance has made horticulture one of the foundations of economic life in the town and it is the reason for being called “The Blossoming Town”. Close by is also the geothermal plant Hellisheiði that you will see from above.
