Volcano Heli

Volcano Heli ehf. is an Icelandic company focused on tourism and photography flights in Iceland. The company offers its customers the opportunity to explore Iceland’s impressive and everchanging landscapes from high above. The helicopter rides promote a new perspective from the popular visited places in Iceland, such as Gulfoss and Geysir, lava fields and different volcanoes, but also most importantly remote and inaccessible locations, which can sometimes only be reachd by helicopter. This especially includes the highlands and it’s many explorations around Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe. Customers can be taken to remote locations to discover new landscapes as with the volcanic fissure eruption at Holuhraun. To fly close to the eruption and feel the power of nature is an unforgettable experience.

Cape Tours

CapeTours is a small family business owned and run by Þórunn and Bjarni from their home in the rual village Grenivík. Both are outdoor enthusiasts with a love for nature.

„We belive that nature should be taken care of and due to how dellicate the Icelandic fauna is we only have small private groups (5 – 6 people max.).“

– Bjarni Arason

Þórunn and Bjarni are keen on slow travel and engurage people to stay at one place longer, rather than visiting more places on the go.

“Slow travel is not so much a particular mode of transportation as it is a mindset. Rather than attempting to squeeze as many sights or cities as possible into each trip, the slow traveler takes the time to explore each destination thoroughly and to experience the local culture.”

– Sarah Schlichter

Bjarni is CapeTours guide and expert on the outdoor living and experience. His love for nature starts in the Danish scouts when he was 6 and he has been sailing canoes and building shelters ever since. Canoeing turned into seakayaking later on and Bjarni has been instructing in both sports for about 10 years. Bjarni does not stop at sea level as he hikes (mainly looking for sheep), skiies and snowboards aswell. Bjarni has a bachelor decree in tourism.

Þórunn is the definition of an Icelandic farm girl. Growing up on a Icelandic sheep farm has given her a good sence for Icelandic animals and fauna. Be it berries or flowers, birds or mice, she knows. She has been angling for trout since she could hold the rod and riding the Icelandic horse since she could sit. If you ask nicely she might even make you a traditional Icelandic lamb stew. Þórunn has a bachelor decree in biotechnology.
