From Reykjavik, we fly east along the dramatic south coast of Iceland. En route to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, we follow the never-ending stretches of black lava sand beaches, past the famous Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and tumbling waterfalls. Once we reach the glacier lagoon we stop for 30-45 minutes to give you time for iceberg exploration and seal watching.

As we head back on a westerly heading, we fly over the countless Vatnajokull glacier tongues, past the highest mountain peak of Iceland and to the remote and rugged Fjallabak nature reserve. You’ll see parts of the island that are hidden to all but a few and get access to highland lakes, braided rivers, glacier-hewn valleys, towering mountains, and majestic and primeval volcanic scenery. We’ll explore the colorful mountain ranges around Landmannalaugar geothermal area and Hraftinnusker before we fly past Hekla volcano en route back to Reykjavik city.
During the whole tour, we make three landings. One is at the glacier lagoon but the other two depend on your own interest. Usually, we land on Fimmvorduhals by Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano and at the Hraftinnusker geothermal area.

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