Once settled into the small, modern airplane, listen as your experienced pilot-guide explains the flight path for the day’s trip and describes the landmarks you will be flying over.

Soar over Iceland’s awe-inspiring landscape and soak up the views of the rugged North Atlantic sea, lava fields, and surrounding snow-capped mountains such as Mount Esja and the Bláfjöll mountain range.

Look out for the still-active volcano Hengill, an important source of geothermal activity and folklore. After 20 minutes in the air, return back down to earth at Reykjavík domestic airport, ready to continue exploring the most northerly capital city in the world

Tour Highlights

City of Reykjavík

Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. It has a latitude of 64°08' N, making it the world's northernmost capital. With a population of around 120,000, it is the heart of Iceland's cultural, economic and governmental activity. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world.

Faxaflói Bay

Faxaflói is a bay in southwest Iceland, between the peninsulas of Snæfellsnes and Reykjanes. Reykjavík is situated on its southern shore. Faxaflói has been a source of nourishment of the people living on its shores where fishermen went out in small boats to fish for dinner.


Viðey is the largest island of Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland, near the capital of Reykjavík. The island has archaeological remains dating back to the early 10th century, and was the site where the "father of Reykjavík" Skúli Magnússon constructed his home and a church in the 12th century.

"Comfort is King!"

Our south coast tour was lovely! The black sand beaches felt almost other worldly. Waterfalls are stunning. The south coast tour is a must!...even though it is a very long day. However, booking with Reykjavik Sightseeing is a really great option. Of the four companies we had tours with, they were by far the best.

"Golden Circle Tour with a Toddler"

Visiting the Golden Circle with Reykjavik Sightseeing was a great experience. They had a car seat for our 18 month old that allowed him to easily see out the window during the ride between stops. The buses are very nice, and they provide a tablet with tour facts.
