Description

When we fly over one of the most active volcanic areas in Iceland, the Hellisheiði plateau, you’ll see moss covered lava fields stretched out to the horizon, interspersed with colorful basalt mountains, steaming hot springs and the very geothermal power plants that supply Reykjavik it's renewable energy.

On this sightseeing tour, we make sure to land off the beaten track and away from the crowds to witness the regions raw energy first-hand. In the landing place of Hengill geothermal area - named after the Hengill volcano - you can witness upfront the untouched Icelandic nature. We bring you close to hot springs and boiling mud pots, and you might even see some sheep wandering around the valley in the summer. Note that this is not a regular tourist site, there are no safety ropes etc. - it is just how nature created it. Furthermore, no matter the season or time of year, this area always brings magical, colorful and beautiful views.

On our way back we make a scenic pass over Reykjavik, to give you a unique aerial view of Icelands capital.
