Discover the sharply contrasting faces of Iceland's most formidable natural features during this unique flightseeing tour over the country's glaciers and volcanoes.
The geological age and structure of Iceland offers some of the richest and varied topography in the world. As the land of fire and ice, Iceland delivers a wealth of geological sites for the flight-seeing visitor; impressive mountain ridges, ash cones, table mountains, volcanoes, craters, vast lava fields, and glaciers can all be found here.
Depart the pier for the brief transfer to the domestic airport. Upon arrival, you will board your airplane; receive your flight instructions and lift-off for a magnificent ride over the Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull Glaciers. As you pass between the ice and snowfields, you will fly over Iceland's most famous volcano, Hekla, which last erupted in 2000. Other places of interest to be seen during your flight include Thingvellir, site of the world's oldest Parliament, the Gullfoss golden waterfall, Thórsmörk Nature Reserve, the rhyolite peaks of Landmannalaugar, and Geysir; one of the world's outstanding geothermal areas and the origin of the English word, geyser.
At the conclusion of your approximately 90-minute flight, you will be transferred back to the pier where your tour concludes.
