Diamond Circle Tour / Game of Thrones Filming Locations

Akureyri departures

The Diamond Circle Air Tour takes you on a classic sightseeing scenic flight over Godafoss Waterfall, Lake Myvatn and Dettifoss Waterfall, Europe‘s most powerful waterfall.

Fly through the landscape of The Game of Thrones, Oblivion and Prometheus, filmed in this dramatic landscape.

The Diamond Circle tour starts by exploring Godafoss which is often nicknamed the waterfall of the gods. Next up is Lake Mývatn, with its numerous scenic attractions and geothermal phenomena, pseudo craters, sulfur pools and the steam-energy electric powerplant of Krafla, with its deepest hole reaching two kilometers into the earth´s crust. From Krafla we fly over Vatnajökull National Park to see Europes' most powerful waterfall, Dettifoss, a spectacular waterfall where cascades plunge from a height of 144 feet (44 meters) into a narrow canyon. You can literally feel Dettifoss's powerful force, even from the air.

From Dettifoss waterfall we follow the magnificent canyon Jokulsargljufur, before turning homeward bound for Akureyri, overflying the Theystareykjar lava field and geothermal area, with sinkholes Little Hell and Big Hell. Relax and take in the Troll Peninsula mountain range come to view in the west. 

On the last leg of our Diamond Circle tour we descent into Eyjafjordur where there is a great chance of whale watching on the approach into Akureyri Aiport.
