The Heli-Happy Hour is truly a glittering jewel of an Iceland helicopter tour – the most mind-blowingly spectacular hour of aerial sightseeing you will ever experience. Stand on the top of a mountain and celebrate this unique moment with a glass of sparkling wine. This amazing helicopter tour in Iceland is your chance to do something really special. You will get the photo opportunities of a lifetime!

On the way to a nearby mountain peak you will see outstandingly magnificent views of Reykjavík as you fly over the city. The charming and multi-colored dollhouse-sized rooftops of villages and towns, both far and near, will enchant you.

Seascape, countryside, lava fields, Reykjavík city and mountain peaks – vista after vista will magically open out before you. See the ethereal clouds of steam emanating from distant hot springs drifting across the land. It will be so easy to see why the Viking settlers who came here chose the name Reykjavík, meaning ‘smoky bay’. This perfectly describes the sight which met those intrepid adventurers as they approached their new homeland.  

Landing on the top of a pristine Icelandic mountain will reveal to you totally unique and heart-stopping views over the whole area. We will pop the cork on a bottle of sparkling wine and raise a glass to honor this precious moment. Celebrate and enjoy the panoramic views of distant mountains, Reykjavík and the glittering rich blue ocean which stretch out before you.

Of course, you do not have to walk down the mountain!  Our helicopter will deliver you back safely from whence you came – but first more magnificent scenery to enjoy – this time from a different vantage point as we head towards the city.   

The total duration of this tour is around 50 minutes. A 15-20 minute helicopter flight and a 20 to 30 minute landing on the mountain top. The timing depends a little on the helicopter type and weather conditions. Your tour includes a bottle of sparkling wine.

To find a suitable departure time, we will contact you shortly after you book.

This tour is suitable for everybody, including people who although young in mind and heart, have found themselves limited as to physical activity due to health reasons or old age.

Any passengers over 120 kg / 265 lbs / 19 stone are required to pay for 1.5 seats in the helicopter. This will ensure that everyone on the tour has a comfortable and safe ride!

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.

The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.

Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
