Heli Skiing in Iceland

The Heli skiing season is in full swing up on the Troll peninsula in North Iceland. We work with Arctic Heli Skiing and together we are proud to be heli skiing pioneers in Iceland!

Here you’ll see a few pictures from “the road” 🙂

Reykjavik Aurora short film

We have been so lucky with the high levels of Aurora Borealis in Iceland these last 4-5 months!

We’ ve even had many nights where the lights were so strong that they were easily visible from Reykjavik City. The main Northern Light season is from September until April. Around the end of April, beginning of May the nights become brighter and the Northern Lights can´t be spotted (even though they are still there).

Check out this video from Iceland Aurora Films from last year!

Responsible Tourism in Iceland

Norðurflug Helicopter Tours was one of a group of Icelandic tourism companies to sign a declaration on responsible tourism.

Responsible Tourism is an incentive project by FESTA –  the Center for Corporate Social Responsibility and the Iceland Tourism Cluster. Through this project, companies connected with tourism agree to set themselves a limited number of clear and simple measures of responsible tourism.

On January 10th the declaration on responsible tourism was signed in Reykjavik University. CEO Birgir Ómar Haraldsson and Project Manager Eva Eiríksdóttir attended on behalf of Norðurflug Helicopter Tours and posed for a picture with the President of Iceland, and patron of the project, Mr Guðni Th.Jóhannesson.

If you look closely it appears the president has a small halo over his head. A fitting image since Mr Jóhannesson is extremely popular during his first months as president.

Nordic Gods vrs American Gods

Iceland has a rich tradition for mythology and sagas of the Nordic Gods.

One of the oldest written manuscript of Nordic mythology, Snorra Edda, was written in Iceland in the middle ages. Being such an isolated country the language has not changed much and many Icelanders today can still read the original scripts!

The Nordic Gods have been the inspiration for many books, poems, operas and films. The most recent example being the blockbuster movies Avengers and Thor.

English author Neil Gaiman is a big fan of nordic mythology and in this video he visits Iceland to examine the origin of his book, American Gods:

 

Shooting aerial photos from a helicopter

We are privileged to fly with a lot of photographers, both amateur and professional.

This article from PetaPixel is a great guidance for those interested in getting some great aerial pictures from a helicopter.

 

The first advice is the most important one for photographing in Iceland: Proper clothing! Iceland is cold and even colder 1000 feet in the air 😉
