Volcanoes & Glaciers
Spectacular flight over Iceland's infamous Eyjafjallajokull. 135.900 ISK per person.
On our spectacular volcano tour we overfly Þórsmörk Nature Reserve and land on a volcanic crater on Fimmvörðuháls. We also fly above the infamous and now dormant Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano, whose eruption in 2010 became global news. From the top we head down its glacier tongue Gígjökull that was split in half by hot melting lava. If we're lucky we might even catch a glimpse of Iceland's most active volcano, Hekla, and the Westmann Islands.
En route back to Reykjavik we follow the black lava sand beach that stretches hundreds of kilometers along the South Coast. The black beach is a vast expanse of volcanic material laid bare by the endless tides of the ocean. The black sands are quite sought after by Hollywood film studies to provide the landscape for films like Oblivion, Prometheus, and other science fiction films. En route back to Reykjavík we soar over lava fields and explore a few craters and fly over the Hengill geothermal area and get a good look at power plants where geothermal heat is being harnessed to provide clean, sustainable energy.
