Askja Highland Ultimate Air Tour

Akureyri departures

The Askja Highland Ultimate Air tour is a great way to admire the beautiful Icelandic Highland. The scenic flight is comfortable and includes a landing in the famous Herðubreiðarlindir oasis for a short and refreshing highland break.  The Herdubreidarlindir runway was laid down in the 1960s by NASA to bring provisions and equipment to the Apollo astronauts, who trained for the moon landings in the area.  

On this tour we fly over the magnificent Godafoss Waterfall towards the highlands. Our highland experience will begin by seeing the magnificent highland queen, Mount Herdubreid, as we fly towards the Askja Caldera.  After exploring the hot springs of Askja we turn towards the north side of Vatnajokull glacier, to Kverkfjöll, the currently active volcanic site.     

On the homeward journey towards Akureyri, sit back and take in the view of Odadahraun, the vast lava desert, and Holuhraun, the most recent lava in Iceland.
