Waterfalls and Valleys by Helicopter

All year Daily About 70-90 min. Nordurflug, close to Reykjavik Airport Very easy

The Waterfalls & Valleys tour has three main attractions. Firsty the grandeur Glymur waterfall. Next the UNESCO World Heritage Site – Thingvellir National Park. And last the Hengill geothermal area where we land.

This fabulous tour takes us to Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland. Next we go to the spectacular valley of Thingvellir, Iceland’s historic parliament site.

Magnificently revealed from the air, this unique site bears witness to the tearing apart of the Americas and European tectonic plates and the immense geological forces which have formed Iceland over millennia. This can be very well seen from the helicopter.

After Thingvellir we go to Hengill geothermal area where we land. There we find natural hot springs, mud pots that are only accessible by a helicopter or a few hour hike.

On our way back we get a good view of Reykjavik City from air.
