Though called a "mountain,"  Esja is actually a volcanic mountain range made from basalt and tuff stone.  See its features up close on this helicopter sightseeing tour.  Enjoy breath-taking views of Reykjavik as your helicopter flies over the city and lands on one of the table-top mountains overlooking the area. You'll be on the very summit of the mountain for the photo opportunity of a life-time, with unforgettable panoramas of the coastal plain, the cityscape of Reykjavik and  the distant mountains.


Tour 2:  Geothermal Tour -  From £349 per person

Iceland’s subterranean energy is revealed from the air as you soar across Iceland’s volcanic landscape. The journey takes you over geothermal hot springs, colorful mountain ranges, power plants, lava fields and craters. The helicopter will land far away from the busier tourist areas and make a brief stop to witness the raw, primeval energy rising up from the earth beneath. Finally, your flight path concludes with a flyover of Reykjavik for an aerial panorama of the city.
