Highland Ultimate: Askja, Myvatn, Herdubreid and Vatnajokull Glacier

Akureyri departures

In this tour, we fly over the magnificent Godafoss towards Lake Myvatn with its numerous attractions, such as Krafla, Namaskard, Hverfjall and pseudo craters before starting our journey into the true highlands of Iceland.   Our highland experience will begin by seeing the magnificent Highland queen, Mount Herdubreid.  Conditions permitting, we´ll have a short pit-stop at Mt Herdubreid by landing on the sandstrip at the foot of the mountain and near the source of the oasis water.  After our pit stop we set the course towards Kverkfjoll, a rift in the north Vatnajokull glacier, and still an active volcanic site.  From there we fly over Iceland´s most recent lava-field, Holuhraun, still cooling down after the eruptions quit in January 2015. After Holuhraun, we fly towards Askja.  After exploring the hot springs of Askja, sit back as we turn towards Akureyri, and take in the view of Odadahraun, the vast lava desert.
