What you will do

A comprehensive tour over Iceland's largest caldera, Askja. After viewing the surroundings of Lake Myvatn from the air you will fly to the South, over Ódáðahraun (the largest continous lava field in Iceland) towards Askja, which is a stratovolcano in the central highlands, reaching up to 4954 ft (1510 m.) in height and only is accessible few months of the year, except by air! After passing Askja we will take you over the newly formed lava field at Holuhraun. There you will see the aftermath of a 6 month volcanic eruption creating the largest lava field in Iceland since 1783. The size is approx. 85km2(33 sq mi) and the crater is around 700m long and 80m high. Seen from the air you will get a more profound understanding of its unique geology and impressive molding of land. While returning we fly by Mt. Herðubreið, often called the Queen of Icelandic mountains. From there we fly back to Lake Mývatn, over Hverfjall, Námafjall with the tour normally ending over Krafla before returning to Reykjahlid airfield.
