The Wonders of South Iceland Sightseeing Flight

The Wonders of South Iceland Sightseeing Flight
High above the earth, you will gain an entirely new perspective on the Icelandic landscape.
You won't believe the rich depth of colour visible from the sky.
Beneath you, you will see steaming volcanic vents, creeping glaciers, rumbling river systems and lush canyons.
Flight-seeing, you will have a fantastic vantage point over the country's lakes and farmlands.
Seeing the wonders of South Iceland by air is a particularly special, VIP type of tour.
You will fly over creeping glaciers, gorgeous farmland and even steaming volcanic vents.

Take this flight-seeing tour over the gorgeous South Coast of Iceland and see for yourself some of the most beautiful natural attractions the country has to offer. This is a fantastic tour opportunity for those visitors looking to see glaciers, volcanoes, black sand beaches, ice caps and rumbling rivers, all from the sky!

To begin, you will fly over some of the most visited places on the South Coast, such as Skógarfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, Dyrhólaey promontory, Reynisfjara black beach and the picturesque village of Vík.

Skógarfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls are two of the most popular waterfalls in the whole country and are even more beautiful when taken in as an entire panorama, the glacial rivers tumbling over the cliffs in a powerful visual display.

Dyrhólaey is a cliff with an unusual keyhole cut out of it. On top of the promontory is a cute red-and-white church. Puffins come to nest in the cliff during the summer months. You might be able to get a photo of this or other seabirds if you're quick! 

Reynisfjara is a velvety black swatch of sand, chosen by Islands Magazine as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world in 1991. The surging tides pound the shoreline all the way to the hexagonal black basalt cliffs and crash against the Reynisdrangar sea stacks. 

Soaring high above on a sightseeing flight, you'll get to experience Iceland in a new way: you'll see the island all at once, rather than in stages by those driving below. Your pilot and guide will answer any questions you have, and tell you all about the scenes at your feet. They may even be able to manoeuvre the plane to ensure you get the best shots! 

Your pilot will also communicate with you about any changes to the schedule in case of bad weather, to ensure that you have the best possible experience in Iceland and are able to have the flight you want! 

Grab this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the south coast from above. Check booking availability now, by choosing a date.
