If the skies are clear, we will get a good view of the biggest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull, before we reach the unique Askja caldera. Next, we fly to the glacier river that forms Dettifoss waterfall; there is no better way to see the most powerful waterfall in Europe cascade down the canyons it has eroded.

While heading back west we explore the surreal landscape in Myvatnssveit. It doesn’t matter whether you are a geologist or a 4-year-old child, the sights will take your breath away;  the most active volcanic area in Iceland by Krafla, Viti crater, the steaming fumaroles and bubbling mud pools in Namaskard, Hverfjall tephra ring, Dimmuborgir lava formations and the pseudo craters at Skutustadir.

Included in the tour is a packed lunch. Your pilot will choose a scenic location to stop for a picnic.

If you would rather stay closer to Reykjavik and explore the craters of Reykjanes peninsula, or the geothermal heat of the south-west corner, these tours are for you:
