Volcano Helicopter Tour In Iceland

Feel The Heat Of The Volcano

Iceland is famous for volcanic activity, and there have been eruptions every 5 years on average. 
Some are bigger than others, but always a magnificent display of nature’s forces when they do happen. The most recent eruption took place at the end of December 2023, near the town of Grindavik. It was the fourth eruption in that area since 2021 with the first one erupting in Fagradalsfjall that went on for a few months.

Now you have the chance to explore the incredible change in the landscape, only a short 15 minute flight from Reykjavik, you can see the lava fields and enjoy the watching some of earth’s newest patches of land. Although it is not currently active the area is believed to be entering an active volcanic period, which can last decades or even hundreds of years.

This tour will take you to see the fresh lava field and the new craters that have formed the landscape. The tour is around 40 minutes long, with regular departures from Reykjavik Domestic Airport.
