This experience was recommended by our host in their apartment information materials. Also, it was mentioned by others on a tour we took. However, what clinched the deal was a recommendation from a taxi driver who drove us out for a pre-flight Covid test. We asked him what things he suggested we made sure we did around Reykjavík. Fly Over Iceland was his first answer and we bought tickets that day! It was a lovely walk over to this event location, and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was educational and entertaining and very well done. The first parts were presented standing, and the seated part was both fun and breathtaking. Afterward, lunch at a wharf restaurant was a perfect ending. We ate at a restaurant labeled the oldest restaurant in Reykjavik, which had no lines and was delicious.
FlyOver Iceland was a very fun experience. We were especially glad we had toured Iceland prior to taking the ride...it made it much better having just seen so much. Getting our tickets through Get Your Guide was so easy, and it meant we had our tickets before arriving and made the whole experience stress free.
The experience was incredible! The narrative of the Viking simulating the early days of Iceland's inhabitants was very informative. The video of how the island was formed was interesting. We were able to see remote areas of Iceland that otherwise we would have missed during the fly over experience.
This activity is a must do on your visit. Only thing better would be if you take actual helicopter rides. You really see how amazingly beautiful this country is.
Absolutely worth experiencing it shows beautiful places in Iceland that only a handful of tourist will ever see.
