Watch Nordurflug’s Geothermal Tour!
Take to the skies of Iceland with this epic aerial tour of some of the island’s most spectacular scenery. Based at Keflavik domestic airport, Nordurflug offer a range of helicopter tours across Iceland. The geothermal tour is by far one of the best on offer. Taking you over the city of Reykjavik, the tour swoops low over mountainous terrain, bypassing redundant volcanic craters as you head towards some of Iceland’s most remote and geologically active regions. Landing at the geothermal site is by far one of the tours highlights.
Walking between the mountain peaks of the geothermal plateau is sensational. Sulphur pools sizzle away while geothermal vents spew out an endless stream of gas. This is one tour you simply don’t want to miss! Don’t take our word for it, here’s a recent trip advisor review…
I cannot say enough good things about the staff and tour experience as a whole. This will be one of the more pricey things you do while in Iceland, but it is SO WORTH IT. Hands down the most awesome part of our trip The pilot was extremely professional and did a great job explaining the terrain as we flew past. The landing location is so cool and an experience you literally cannot find anywhere else. 10/10 would do a tour with this company again! – TripAdvisor Review
When To Go…
There is plenty to do in Iceland, but your itinerary pretty much depends on the time of year you decide to visit. Summer is a lot more expensive, but then days are longer and the temperatures higher. This naturally means you’ll reap the benefits of greater accessibility. During the winter months, it can be disheartening to find some of Iceland’s great tours closed for the season. But don’t worry, Nordurflug are about to give you every reason to pack your winter gear and go!
Whether you want to hire a car and explore, or sign up for one of the many tours available, you’ll want to keep an eye on the forecast. Iceland is occasionally hit with fairly harsh snow storms in the winter months. For some readers, this may be considered a good reason to stay put, but we would argue quite the opposite!
Yes, its bitterly cold and roads are often snowed under, but once all has settled, there’s something romantically poetic about what remains of the white Icelandic landscape. For spectacular aerial views and added adventure, we recommend taking this tour during the winter!

- If it’s snowing on your tour, wear boots. The snow is knee-deep in places, and normal trainers won’t cut it!
- Don’t get too close to the sulphur reservoirs. They are unstable and can cause serious burns.
- Nordurflug’s centre is a 20 minute walk or 8 minute taxi ride from Reykjavik town centre.
- Nordurflug’s centre is not at the main domestic terminal. Make sure you tell your driver to drop you to the helicopter tour terminal!
- The site is remote and cold. Wrap up warm and wear thick socks!
- You can take small bags with your valuables on board, they will however be placed in a luggage hold.
