Hop on this flight for a scenic 15 minute excursion over the Icelandic countryside: If you can't decide where to go, let the pilot decide! This is perfect for anyone who has simply too many locations on your wishlist: These experts can help.
You'll start by arriving at Skaftafell Airport near the nature reserve, within Vatnajökull National Park. There are plenty of beautiful sights to enjoy, and your pilot will tell you all about the landscape below and help you get the best possible photos.
Skaftafell is one of the most beloved areas of Iceland, having come back from the brink of extinction. Looking down at the lush trees, full of hiking trails that snake their way toward the glacier crawling over the landscape just above, you'd never guess that it was once an abandoned wasteland.
You might see Hvannadalshnjukur, the highest peak of Oraefajokull volcanic glacier and the tallest peak in Iceland. Or the pilot might take you inland and soar across the rocky highlands, with glacial tongues, the moody heaths ringed with moss and blooming with purple lupine during the warmer months.
On this tour, you call the shots. You get to experience Iceland from above and enjoy the tremendous scenery and contrasts between ice and fire, and during the summer between green mountains and thirsty valleys.
Take this perfect opportunity if you can't make up your mind on where to go: Just sit back, relax and enjoy the view as the pilot chooses the route. Check availability by choosing a date.
