We had such an amazing time. The pilot taught us a lot about the plane and Iceland. I got to see a rainbow out of the window, plus beautiful water scenery. I did get to control the plane briefly too. The guides were both amazing and so friendly. I cannot recommend it enough as a unique way to see Iceland.
