Description

We fly from Lake Mývatn and its surroundings, over Ódáðahraun (the largest continuous lava field in Iceland) towards the stratovolcano, Askja, situated in the central highlands of Iceland and reaching the height of 4954 ft (1510 m.). We make a circle over the caldera and fly from there to the Kverkfjoll Mountains, here you will be able to observe the striking contrasts between thermal heat and glaciers.

Kverkfjoll Mountain Range have a very large, and very hot magma chamber

The glacier in question, Vatnajokull, is the largest glacier in Europe. On a clear day, one can see right across it to the south all the way to Iceland's highest mountain, Oraefajokull.

Flying back we pass over Mount Herdubreid (often referred to as the Queen of Iceland's mountains) before flying back to Lake Myvatn, over Mount Hverfjall, Mount Namafjall and Krafla prior to returning to the airport.

This tour provides excellent material for photography!
