Excellent tour!

Had a great helicopter tour of the volcanic area outside Reykjavik. The guide was knowledgeable and attentive. After landing at a spot to checkout the geography closer, he helped by 86 year mother around. Felt very confident he wasn’t going to let her injure herself. He really impressed me!

This offer is rather unsuitable for Reykjavík, since it is predominantly rainy weather with low-hanging clouds. The wind is often gusty. In such cases, this flight tour is not carried out and replacement is offered, which is very simple and made from m. View does not justify the price.
