There are few better ways to admire the striking landscapes of north Iceland's Diamond Circle than from the sky. During a 1-hour flight from Akureyri, you’ll enjoy aerial views of world-renowned natural landmarks including Lake Myvatn, Godafoss, and Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall. See, too, the visionary tableau of Vatnajökull National Park and relish the intimate atmosphere of this small-group tour, limited to only seven guests.
15 minutes before your 2pm flight, arrive at Akureyri Airport to greet your pilot. Then, after a short safety briefing, you’ll proceed to your plane, an innovative GippsAero GA8 Airvan.
Get comfortable in one of seven seats and feel your excitement heighten as the plane’s propellers roar into life and you begin to ascend over the urban sprawl of Akureyri. From above, you’ll soon recognize spectacular landscapes featured in ‘Game of Thrones’: fly over Godafoss waterfall and admire the lava-sculpted landscapes that surround Lake Myvtan, Iceland’s fourth largest lake.
From here, you'll soar over the dramatic landscapes of Vatnajökull National Park to Dettifoss, where inexorable plumes of water plunge from a height of 144 feet (44 meters).
Then, after gliding over a series of rugged canyons, you’ll see the mountains of the Troll Peninsula before landing back at Akureyri Airport, where your tour concludes.
