In a truly amazing country – the experience is multiplied from above
Seeing a panorama of the colours of the season, experiencing the feeling of soaring securely on a cloud over all the most beautiful characteristics that Iceland has to offer, is thrilling. The rotors are spinning. The pilot is a safe professional, knowledgeable and unpretentious. Your first thought: “This is what I have always dreamed off”. It is already worth it from the first minute. The take-off is soft and dreamlike. Then you are flying over the colourful roofs of central Reykjavík. Harpa Opera House stands out below. The pilot explains the story of the city’s main landmarks as you pass over Viðey, the island in the middle of Reykjavik bay, where Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, comes every year to illuminate the sky with the light tower she gave the city.
Fascinating from the first minute to the last, the journey continues over the dwelling of the Nobel literary prize winner, Halldór Laxness, across the Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of the European and American continents slowly tear apart through the centre of Iceland, and then into the breath-taking desolation of the country’s interior. You feel in a privileged position. Now imagine the rest of the journey. It is a dream come true as the start of the trip described above is only one of many tours that Reykjavik Helicopter could take you on.
