Take this sightseeing flight around beautiful Reykjavik and its surroundings, and see the most famous buildings, sculptures, historic sites of the city and even a volcano from a bird's eye view.

What to expect?

  • On this tour you will see the beautiful Harpa concert hall, which was opened in 2011, the Sun Voyager, which is a sculpture located along the north seaside, and is described as a dreamboat, or an ode to the sun.

  • You will also see the famous house, Höfði, which is best known as the location for the 1986 summit meeting of presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, a historical event that effectively marked the end of the Cold War.

  • The Imagine Peace Tower is a memorial, which Yoko Ono built in memory of her husband John Lennon, and is located on Viðey island, and is lit every year in October.

  • You will see Gljúfrasteinn, the residence of Iceland’s only Nobel laureate, Halldór Laxness, who was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1955.

  • You will also see Þríhnúkagígur, which is a dormant volcano. Covering a 3270-square-meter area and a depth of 213 meters, it has not erupted in the past 4000 years. Þríhnjúkagígur opened for tourism in 2012 but was discovered in 1974.

  • We will fly over Bessastaðir, which is the official residence of the president of Iceland and has played a dominant role in the history of the country.
