Overview
Iceland is a landscape of cascading waterfalls and bubbling lava fields—and the best way to see it is from the air. Save hours of hiking by helicoptering directly on the remote Thórisjökull glacier and in the Hengill geothermal area. Soar over natural attractions including Glymur waterfall and Thingvellir National Park. Cover a huge expanse of land efficiently by helicopter and admire the scenery from the skies.

Here is what happen with our tour last week. Helicopter had six sits, two upfront and four on the back. Originally it was four people on the tour. Last minute two more people showed up apparently familiar with the manager. Magically they were put on the front of the helicopter.
