For further information:
After viewing the surroundings of Lake Myvatn from the air you will fly to the South, over Odadahraun (the largest continuous lava field in Iceland) towards Askja, which is a stratovolcano in the central highlands, reaching a height of 4954 ft (1510 m.) - it is only accessible for a few months of the year, except by air!
From Askja we continue further south towards the Kverkfjoll Mountains, located on the northern edge of Vatnajokull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. On a clear day, it is possible to see all the way to Iceland's highest mountain, Oraefajokull.
From there you will fly to the north, passing close to Mount Herdubreid and flying over some of the most desolate parts of Iceland until you reach Europe's most powerful waterfall, Dettifoss.
After few passes over Dettifoss you will fly along the beautiful Jokulsar canyon until you reach Asbyrgi, which is a horse shoe shaped depression in the landscape and measures roughly 1.1 km across and 3.5 km in length. The sides are formed by steep cliffs which average around 100 metres in height.
From there we will fly back to Lake Myvatn, over Krafla, Namafjall and Hverfjall, before landing at Reykjahlid Airport.
