Tour details

Our aerial sightseeing starts with the now dormant Eyjafjallajökull volcano that made international headlines for its eruption in 2010. We’ll then fly over the Mýrdalsjökull glacier that sits atop another brooding volcano, Katla. Other volcanic sights on our flight path include Hekla, the island’s most active volcano, the Westman Islands, site of a major eruption in 1973 and Surtsey Island, which emerged from the sea in the early 1960s. We’ll also cross over the mountainous Hengill area, where geothermal heat is being harnessed to provide clean, sustainable energy.

This tour starts and ends at the Reykjavik Domestic Airport, just minutes by taxi from downtown hotels.
