By sightseeing from such a distance, observers often gain a deeper appreciation of the landscape.

Join this unique scenic flight to see Reykjavík and its gorgeous natural surroundings from high above. Many people describe the landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula as what they might imagine the moon to look like (no surprise, given Iceland's prominence as a shooting location for science fiction films). It is even more otherworldly from above, and you'll the special chance to gain an aerial perspective of both the city and the countryside.

On this flight, you can expect to see Reykjavík's bright coloured houses, volcanic craters, beautiful lakes, the Blue Lagoon and rising steam from the surrounding hot springs and geothermal features on Reykjanes peninsula. 

Other beautiful locations on the Reykjanes Peninsula include Krýsuvík geothermal area, found in the middle of a fissure zone on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. You can also see the point where the two tectonic plates of Europe and America begin to split apart, ever so slowly, driven by the same heat and pressure that powers Iceland's many hot pools. 

Hengill volcano in the southwest is another dazzling sight, covered in drifting clouds of steam from surrounding fumaroles and bubbling hot springs. Don't worry though—the last eruption was more than 2,000 years ago. You will also see the Blue Mountains, a beautiful group of tuff mountains not far from Reykjavik, by the lava plateau of Hellisheiði. The mountains are the most popular skiing venue for the people of Reykjavik. 

Viðey island is the largest island in the Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland, near the capital of Reykjavík. The island has archaeological remains dating back to the early 10th century. Now, the island is home to the Imagine Peace Tower, built in honour of the late Beatle, John Lennon.
