Askja Caldera & Lake Mývatn Scenic Flight

Visit the Highland on a Unique Sightseeing Flight

Air Tour above the Icelandic Highland

Askja Caldera & Lake Mývatn Scenic Flight is a unique tour. We fly over the magnificent Goðafoss Waterfall towards Lake Mývatn with its numerous attractions, such as Krafla Mountain, Námaskarð Mountain, Hverfjall Crater and pseudo craters before starting our journey into the true highlands of Iceland. Our highland experience will begin by seeing the magnificent Highland queen, Herðubreið Mountain, as we fly towards Askja Caldera.  After exploring the hot springs of Askja we turn towards the north side of Vatnajökull Glacier, to Kverkfjöll Mountains, the still active volcanic site.

On the homeward journey towards Akureyri, sit back and take in the view of Ódáðahraun Lava Field, the vast lava desert, and Holuhraun, the most recent lava in Iceland.

The airplane used for this tour is a 7 passenger AirVan with leather seats, large windows and quiet headsets for each passenger.
