Hunting Film Locations

Norðurflug Helicopter Tours is excited to offer this new tour for 2020. It is no secret that Iceland is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. These natural beauties have played an important role in major films and TV programs in recent years. Most of us have heard of ,,The Secret Life of Walter Mitty“, „Oblivion“, „Interstellar“, „Flags Of Our Fathers“, „Prometheus“, „Noah“, „Thor“ , „Star Wars“, „Game Of Thrones“ and many more. On this tour we will give you the chance to go behind the scenes and overfly some of the beautiful landscapes captured in these film projects we have participated in and the aerial shooting behind it. Let the hunting begin by taking off from Reykjavik and following the Secret Life of Walter Mitty "road" towards Hellisheiði plateau and Hengill Geothermal Area. This active geothermal area is also known for some of the famous Game of Thrones scenes. You might for example remember the memorable fighting scene between Brienne of Tarth and the Hound! From there we overfly Þingvellir National Park, where you will witness the continental drift of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates. If you keep a close eye you might witness the ,,Bloody Gate" from Game of Thrones from above! Our journey continues, passing few of the hidden waterfalls on our way up to Jarlhettur, were we will make our first landing and enjoy the volcanic views. Watch out for dragons, spaceships and aliens! After the stop we will get some aerial views of the famous Golden Circle sites; Geysir Geothermal Area and Gullfoss Waterfall before heading further inland towards the highlands of Iceland. Flying with the dragons like John Snow at the Canyon Laxárgljúfur and passing to Dómadalur. There is a reason why Prometheus, Oblivion and Noah all chose to film in the remote areas such as Dómadalur as it looks like you are on a different planet. When we arrive to Þórsmörk we will make our second stop to check out the beautiful nature valley. We might not see the spaceship from Han Solo in Star Wars but it is a perfect timing to take a selfie next to the helicopter. After the stop we will follow a trail of towering waterfalls as they drop out of the mountains to the black sandy coastlines, as we make our way along the shore up to the lava fields of Reykjanes Peninsula to see some of the sites from „Flags of Our Fathers“ & ,,Noah". Fun fact: Did you know that the famous scene in Flags of our fathers, where the American flag is raised on a hill, is taken in Iceland?! Remember to have your camera along on this one!

From the air, the volcanic black sand beaches of South Iceland seem to stretch out forever. This is where Iceland hugs the Atlantic Ocean, a place where sediment carrying glacial rivers battle the might and erosion of the North Atlantic. In the distance, looms the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano, with its gleaming glacier cap, canyons and tumbling waterfalls. Entering Vatnajökull National Park from the air is a truly unique sight. Home to the largest ice cap in Europe by volume, this massive wall of white has over 30 outlet glaciers flowing and crashing down from its giant ice cap. Our first stop is at the base of one of them, where we take a closer look at one of the natural wonders of Iceland. At touch down we spend 30- 45 minutes exploring Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and its luminous bright blue icebergs, some of which are more than 1000 years old. Here you might even catch a glimpse of Iceland's playful seals! Back in the air we make one final pass over the lagoon and head west, past the highest peak in Iceland and over the many glacial tongues of the Vatnajökull Glacier. As these rivers of ice fade to pencil thin lines of white behind the helicopter, we enter the remote Fjallabak region - the Icelandic highlands. This is the unpopulated, rugged, mountainous center of the island. Secluded mountain lakes, braided rivers, glacial-hewn valleys and towering mountains that, due to their remoteness, remain hidden to all but a few. We will explore the colorful rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar geothermal area and Hrafntinnusker from the air and ground, before heading back to Reykjavik, passing Mt Hekla - one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland. Note: during this trip we will make three landings, one of which is at the Glacier Lagoon. The other two depend on weather conditions but the most common ones include Fimmvörðuháls's by Eyjafjallajökull Volcano and Hrafntinnusker geothermal area.
