Reykjavik – Helicopter Over the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Golden Circle
Transport your family to the mystical landscapes of the safest country in the world, Iceland, and prepare yourselves for an adventure of a lifetime. When you arrive at Keflavik Airport, your private transfer will guide you to a helicopter ride that circles the Southwest side of Iceland or the Golden Circle. You will have the rare opportunity of witnessing the beauty of Thingvellir National Park, which is the sole UNESCO World Heritage Site in Iceland, from a bird’s eye view. This exclusive experience will have you marveling at the Geysir Geothermal area in Haukadalur Valley, which is home to active geysers such as the infamous Strokkur, Smidur, and Litli-Strokkur. The spewing and blistering water of Strokkur will stun your family into silence with its majesty.
From here, you will continue toward Iceland’s signature waterfall of the region: Gullfoss or Golden Falls. The sheer size and grandeur of Gullfoss bring a light mist to anyone who is standing nearby. You can also gaze at the sensation of the mid-Atlantic ridge, which is the only ridge that can be seen above sea level, from this location. Later, you will tiptoe along the edge of the Almannagja gorge, which is home to long stretches of darkened volcanic rock and where part of North America’s tectonic plates lie. You can challenge yourself to see if you can discover the secret path that leads to another majestic but human-made waterfall, Oxararfoss. If you cannot find it, your guide will gladly give you hints. As you stand at the base of the waterfall, you will be carried away by its folklore and beauty that will make you feel completely at peace.
