A very extensive Tour covering nearly all of the other tours. dd
An unforgettable tour providing material for fantastic photographs and adventurous experience.
After viewing the surroundings of Lake Myvatn from the air you will fly to the South, over Odadahraun (the largest continuous lava field in Iceland) towards Askja, which is a stratovolcano in the central highlands, reaching up to 4954 ft (1510 m.) in height and only is accessible few months of the year, except by air!
From Askja we continue further South towards Kverkfjoll mountains, located on the Northern edge of Vatnajokull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. On a clear day, one can see all the way to Iceland's highest mountain, Oraefajokull. From there you will fly to the North, pass closely to Mt.
Herdubreid and fly over some of the most desolate parts of Iceland until you reach Europe's most powerful waterfall, Dettifoss.
After a few passes over Dettifoss, you will fly along the beautiful Jokulsarcanyon until you reach Asbyrgi, which is a horseshoe-shaped depression in the landscape which measures roughly 1.1 km across and 3.5 km in length. The sides are formed by steep cliffs which average about 100 meters in height.
From there we fly back to Lake Myvatn, over Krafla, Namafjall, and Hverfjall, before landing at Reykjahlid airport.
