At the last moment still about the volcano consequences. There was initially a waiting list and was no longer active. On the morning itself, it had become active and we were allowed to decide whether we wanted to fly over the fields or over the volcano. Very nice and thoughtful staff!

Fantastic !!!first time in a helicopter .. my partner and I had the best time in this tour .. the pilot was very professional, helpful and made us feel at ease . We saw lots of great views of landscapes and volcanos and we landed on a remote spot on the mountains where there were active hot Springs . I would highly recommend this company and this tour .

very impressive flight to remote areas.

Seeing the Icelandic landscape from above deepens the impressions gained by 100%, because you can see connections that you never see on the ground. Landing at the remote thermal field is worth the trip in terms of color alone. We are absolutely enthusiastic, and the pilot also contributed to this with his remarks.
