Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of sightseeing from an airplane?

Much of Iceland’s landscape is hard to access, such as the glaciers and the Central Highlands. You get a much better sense of the landscape from the air, as well as the knowledge that you're partaking in a sightseeing tour rarely undertaken by tourists.

What’s the difference between sightseeing in an airplane and in a helicopter?

More people can fit in a small airplane than in a helicopter, and airplane tours are therefore more reasonably priced than helicopter tours. Airplanes however need a landing strip to take off and land, whereas helicopters can land anywhere and take off instantly. Helicopters can also hover over attractions whereas airplanes would need to fly circles over them.

Where are the main airports in Iceland?

The international airport in Iceland is in Keflavík, but many domestic airports, and small airstrips are found all around the country. The main domestic airports are in Reykjavík, Akureyri, Ísafjörður, Egilsstaðir, Höfn and the Westman Islands.

How long is the flight between Reykjavik and Akureyri?

It is 45 minutes each way.

What are the pros and cons of flying within Iceland?

You can significantly shorten the time between destinations. Flying between Reykjavík and Akureyri, for example, only takes 45 minutes but driving takes up to 6 hours with stops. You also get to see the magnificent landscapes from an aerial view.
