Tips and advice

Dress code

Good shoes are recommended, shoes you want to wear in the highlands and on top of glaciers. In wintertime we suggest a warm winter jacket, gloves and scarfs. In summer a sweater and a light jacket is usually enough. Dress in layers so you can easily take off the outer layers. Coats can be stored in the baggage compartment while you enjoy the scenery from inside the warm helicopter.

Snacks

Before departure you will be able to enjoy a warm drink, water or soda. We encourage people to pack light snacks, especially for tours lasting more than 2 hours to keep up your energy for the whole experience.

Single traveler

Are you a solo traveler interested in joining an open tour? 2-3 people interested in a longer tour? Send us an e-mail at info@helo.is with dates and times you are available, and we will do our best to pair you with others to reach the minimum required.
