The adventure begins at Myvatn Airport, a private airport in North Iceland. You'll meet the experienced pilot and other travelers joining you on the tour. After a short safety briefing, you'll board the plane and take off.

This exhilarating 20-minute flight gives visitors to Iceland the unique opportunity to see the incredible views of Lake Myvatn from above. You'll soar through the skies over the lake to enjoy the sight of this geothermal area as you've never seen it before.

Lake Myvatn is one of the sights of Iceland's Diamond Circle sightseeing route, North Iceland's answer to the Golden Circle route in South Iceland. Most visitors to the northern region want to spend at least a day enjoying the sights around Lake Myvatn. 

It's an area known for its geothermal activity and stunning geological landscapes. 

The lake is the fourth largest in Iceland at about 14 square miles (36 square kilometers), but it's very shallow. On a clear day, you can see the lake's bottom from the airplane as you fly over it. 

The Myvatn Lake is also home to a large population of birds. See what birdlife you can spot from above as your pilot takes you over this beautiful body of water.

As you fly, you'll see some of the other sights that the area around the lake is known for. Gaze down on the enchanting Skutustadir pseudocraters, formed by volcanic explosions over 2,000 years ago. 

You'll also enjoy a view of the Hverfjall crater. This striking volcanic crater is a popular area for hiking, but it's best seen from above, as you can take in the whole crater at once. 

The pilot will also take you over the Threngslaborgir craters, a group of volcanic craters amid a grassy meadow.

The adventure continues as you fly over the Namafjall geothermal area, one of the most famous sights in the Lake Myvatn region. Take in the gorgeous view of the fumaroles and bubbling mud pots below.

Finally, your pilot will take you to see some of Iceland's youngest lava at the Krafla volcano. You can snap some incredible photos of the mesmerizing landscape shaped by recent volcanic activity.

Take advantage of this opportunity to experience the breathtaking beauty of Lake Myvatn and its surrounding wonders from above with this exciting 20-minute flight-seeing tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
