Helicopter Tour

We offer helicopter tours to Thrihnukagigur, which are ideal for those who aren’t interested in hiking to the roots of the volcano.

The helicopter departs from Reykjavík domestic airport (located close to the center of Reykjavík) and it’s possible to do the tour early morning or in the late afternoon, at 8:30 or in the afternoon. The time of the afternoon tour depends on the season. You can see the exact times and book your tour here

  • Helicopter tour duration: About 2 hours in total (40 minutes inside the crater).  Helicopter flight approximately 12-20 minutes each way.
  • As you can see haven’t opened up for bookings for 2019 for the helicopter tour. You can send us an email for more info.

We try our best to be flexible and if the weather forecast is not looking promising at the time of your booked tour we will:

  • Try to change the time on the same day (e.g. leave for the tour in the afternoon instead of the morning)
  • Offer you to go on a different date (e.g. they day before or the day after)

If neither option would work out, you could do the standard hiking tour (if available) or get a full refund.

If you have any further questions about the helicopter tour please send us an email or call us.
