The Active Volcano Flight
- A 40 minute flight over the active volcano in Reykjanes peninsula
Experience an active volcano first hand. Everyone should witness the powers of mother nature from a safe distance and enjoy the views. We strive to make this an affordable option for everybody to enjoy!
The eruption has fissures spewing gas and lava far into the air and filling up the neighboring valleys. The Reykjanes peninsula is one of the most geologically active areas in Iceland. The current eruptions are a continuation of an ongoing seismic unrest in the past few years.
The activity of the main crater can vary between flights. Natural phenomena is difficult to predict and thus whilst some flights experience boiling red hot lava in the main crater , other flights may see the flowing lava rivers or the area filled with smoking lava and variable colors over the whole area, whilst the main crater takes a break.
The flight leaves from ACE FBO private plane terminal at Reykjavik domestic airport, literally 5 minutes away from the Reykjavik downtown area.
It will take you over the active volcano where we´ll circle around for everyone to get that perfect shot of an active volcano before we head back to the capital.
Flight time is about 35-40 minutes or until everybody is good to go back.

Good to know
- The flight takes place over an active volcano, so bumps can be expected, since the area beneath is hot (obviously). No danger though, but perfectly natural.
