From Reykjavik: Fagradalsfjall Volcano Helicopter Flight

1. From Reykjavik: Fagradalsfjall Volcano Helicopter Flight

In our Fagradalsfjall helicopter tour, you’ll meet your pilot and receive a briefing on this spectacular journey when you arrive at Reykjavik’s domestic airport, which is at a convenient place. You’ll next walk onto the tarmac to your modern, sleek helicopter, which will be waiting for you to take off. Only five or six seats per craft will be available, ensuring a spectacular perspective and an intimate interaction with the volcano. Please remember that eruptions are a natural occurrence that may or may not be active during your visit. This eruption has occurred on the 19th of March, 2021. Relatively, this eruption is small-sized and has taken place on Reykjanes Peninsula. Its geographical location can be traced in Geldingadalir Valley some 20 miles away from Reykjavik. Before this eruption, the Reykjanes peninsula witnessed such eruptions in the 14th century AD. More Interestingly, some 50000 earthquake jolts have taken place following this eruption. It is a catastrophic scenario in the area. The experts of seismology maintain that this volcanic eruption is no less than a surprise. The reason is that meanwhile, the volcano eruption takes place, there was no seismic activity. Without such seismic activity, the eruption seems unlikely. However, the volcano erupted at this site, proving it to be a surprise for the seismic studies. A major benefit of a flying tour like this one is that you will be able to obtain the best view, away from the masses who have come here on foot, giving you a much more intimate experience while enjoying the best view. Remember our Heli tour will not provide you with landing at the site just to ensure the safety of our passengers. You’ll get some beautiful views of the environment surrounding Iceland’s capital as you loop around to the Reykjanes Peninsula, including the verdant Mount Esja and dazzling Faxafloi Bay. The total duration of the tour is approx. 45-60 minutes. Showing you the simmering crater, flowing lava stream, and the extensive lava field. We feel our passengers will get the best experience inside our helicopter. Be sure that our company is supposed to show you the lava scenes during this Icelandic helicopter tour. If the natural occurrence of lava does not take place during our flight, we are not responsible to carry on another flight or assume a new schedule. All of our flights are weather-dependent, and we must follow the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management’s rules and regulations to make our Icelandic helicopter tour for volcanoes secure

What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

This trip will offer you a great experience on a helicopter, and also the magnificent view of Icelandic city, plain and volcanos from above. I flied helicopters in GTA before, so it is even more interesting to experience it in real life and compare it with the game. It is one of the coolest thing I’ve ever done XD

Wonderful experience . Specially the pilot ( Julius ) was very friendly and cooperative . It is a tremendous life time experience to see the Hot springs from the actual destinations which are not feasible to approach by road .

Great communications with company, friendly staff and the pilot was great. Perfect weather. We had super fun and another perspective on Iceland’s geology not seen from the ground.

Fabulous trip for my daughters 21st birthday… the helicopter was gorgeous & the pilot was great…made it an amazing experience fir us all

The ATV Tour was excellent but due to weather conditions we did not manage to do the Helicopter Tour which was disappointing.
