  • Dettifoss waterfalls
  • Ásbyrgi canyon


What we will do
  • We go on a flying tour to admire views of striking mystical beauty characterised by amazing natural geothermal phenomena.
  • We fly over the superb *Godafoss waterfall, whose shape is reminiscent of the more famous Niagara falls even though it is only 22 metres high.
  • We cross the heart of north-eastern Iceland - the Mývatn lake region, where lava rocks and volcanic formations create striking views.
  • We continue our trip flying over the Vatnajökull glacier, the largest in Europe, as far as the Dettifoss waterfall which drops into a narrow canyon surrounded by a lunar landscape made up of rocks as far as the eye can see.
  • We finally reach the spectacular Ásbyrgi canyon, an enormous lush horse-shoe shaped canyon that encloses a birch forest. We then bid goodbye the Icelandic hinterland and head back to Akureyri.

What you need to know
