Above and Beyond

Experience the thrill of viewing Iceland by Helicopter. One of the most exhilarating ways to experience the diverse landscapes of Iceland’s enchanting terrain has to be from above. With so much to see and such an expansive area to explore, viewing Iceland by helicopter allows visitors the privilege of soaking up the scenery in a condensed period of time.


Aerial tours cover captivating volcanic landscapes, fly you along mysterious black sand beaches, and can even land on top of a glacier. Geothermal tours allow you to witness Iceland‘s raw energy. Fly over the most active volcanic area in Iceland – the Hellisheiði plateau and enjoy a view along the way of moss covered lava fields stretching out to the horizon interspersed with colorful basalt mountains, steaming hot springs and geothermal power plants that supply Reykjavik with its renewable energy.


You can book your adventure in the Hotel Rangá reception, or by email at hotelranga@hotelranga.is.

Your pilot can also land in a remote location unreachable by car or on foot where barely any humans have ever set foot before – a truly memorable experience. We strongly recommend booking a helicopter tour of the south coast where you will trace the unique coastline which is home to some of the most beautiful natural attractions in Iceland – from glaciers and volcanoes to ice caps and riverbeds. On this tour you will fly over some of the most popular destinations including the waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, Dyrhólaey, Reynisdrangar and Vík.


For an unforgettable once in a lifetime airborne adventure why not take a full day helicopter tour of Iceland and visit the majority of Iceland’s “postcard” sites in just one day. The largest rivers, the most active volcanoes, the highest mountain, the biggest glacier, often the brightest skies and the darkest sands.


Taking to the skies from Hotel Rangá couldn’t be easier, and your helicopter tour can be tailored to your personal requirements and time-frames where your pilot will literally transport you from door-to-door.
