Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Arrive at Akureyri Airport to greet your pilot or arrange for hotel pickup. 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.

It's such a bonus to see what you've visited on the ground from the air. After some poor weather the skies finally cleared, great scenery and interesting commentry.

Der Flug war echt super. Vorinformation im Büro von Circle Air war sehr aufschlussreich und kurzweilig. Die Vorbereitung vom Flug gut organsiert und wir waren kaum im Flieger angeschnallt auch schon auf der Startbahn. Der Rundflug war mit seinen 75 Minuten gerade richtig um die einzelnen Wasserfälle, Schluchten, Laverfelder, Thermalkraftwerke, … zu sehen und natürlich auf zu fotografieren ;-) Der Pilot war echt sehr gut, ruhige Hand, alles perfekt, der Flieger war vom Anfang weg sehr ruhig und die kurzen Erklärungen zwischendurch waren auch sehr lebendig und informativ. Alles in allen echt eine super Sache
