Magic Colors of Landmannalaugar 

Landmannalaugar is one of the crown jewels of Iceland’s natural wonders. This highland nature reserve boasts steaming geothermal baths, some of the country’s most scenic hiking paths and mountainous valleys with such vivid colours you’ll think your eyes are playing a trick on you. This gorgeous helicopter tour shows you all of that and more, including a landing at a one-of-a-kind spot. Fly with us to discover the magic colours for yourself!

Highland nature reserve Landmannalaugar is without a doubt one of the most important and loved places in all of Iceland. A great number of people come here every summer to hike the picturesque hiking trails leading from the Landmannalaugar geothermal steam baths through mountainous valleys and canyons into Þórsmörk (Thor’s Valley), a valley nestled between two glaciers. The mountain ranges are made up of rhyolite rock formations which give the mountains a whole palette of vivid and striking colours. Nature can sure seem like art sometimes! In winter times the landscapes are mostly snow covered but are no less mesmerizing, welcome to the land of ice and snow where you can soar among icy mountaintops and epic glaciers!

The Icelandic highlands are a rugged and uninhabitable wilderness, where the climate gets quite extreme during fall and winter, so it’s always a point of celebration each spring when the trails into Landmannalaugar and the highlands are opened and they become safe to travel. However, travelling by helicopter gives you the unique opportunity to visit these places of awe and wonder the whole year round!

On this scenic helicopter journey we’ll show you the magic colours of Landmannalaugar while also venturing over some of our most treasured places in Iceland, including serene lakes and waters, twisting riverbeds, valleys, canyons and sprawling glaciers. Lake Veiðivötn (Catch Lake) and Tungnaá (River of Tongues) riverbeds are truly gorgeous seen from above, while Markarfljótsgljúfur canyon and Þórsmörk mountain valley provide some rocky peaks and mythical scenery which will make your jaw drop. A landing at a special spot will round out an awesome flightseeing experience, giving you the chance to set foot well outside the beaten path and snap some jealousy-inducing photos.

Landmannalaugar is universally regarded as the pearl of the Icelandic highlands, fly with us to discover its beauty and witness Iceland like you’ve never seen before!
