Overview

Escape the crowds and enjoy a different take on Iceland’s Golden Circle attractions on a 60-minute flight by Airvan sightseeing plane from Reykjavik. Sink into a window-side seat, and soak in aerial panoramas of the Gullfoss waterfall, the geysers and pools at Geysir, and the tectonic plates and parliamentary site of Thingvellir National Park. Live onboard commentary and bird’s-eye views over Reykjavik and other beauty spots are also included.

  • Enjoy great views from a window-side seat
  • Small group of seven passengers or fewer
Travel independently to Reykjavik Domestic Airport to arrive in advance of your flight time. Then, 15 minutes before take-off, meet the pilot of your Airvan. This small fixed-wing plane is specially designed for aerial sightseeing, and boasts a comfortable, leather-seated interior.

After a safety briefing, relax into one of the window-side seats, fasten your seat belt, and don the audio headsets so you can clearly hear the live guided commentary during your 60- to 75-minute flight. Then, take off into the skies above Reykjavik, and soak in the views of the Icelandic capital’s rooftops and landmarks.

Swing away from the city, and trace the length of Mt. Esja toward Thingvellir National Park. See the lunar-like lava ridges of the park below, and fly over the site of the Althing, where the world´s first parliament gathered in 930 AD.

Continue over the continental rift, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates lie overland, facing each other across a narrow valley. Hear how the plates are gradually inching apart, and then head to the Geysir geothermal area, home to the original hot-water spout that lends its name to the world’s geysers.

Gaze down at the hot springs and steaming vents, and with luck, see the main geyser shoot water high up in the air.

Next, head east to the final Golden Circle sight, Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls. Have your camera ready to capture photos of the fall, whose waters thunder down a ‘staircase’ of drops, before plunging into a rock gorge.

After enjoying the bird’s-eye views here, fly over the Botnssulur Mountains and Iceland's second highest waterfall, Glymur, on route back to Reykjavik. Your experience then concludes after landing back at the airport.
