For those who want to take their visit to the north of Iceland to new heights, this air tour of the Myvatn area and Game of Thrones landscapes is a must!
- Goðafoss and Dettifoss waterfalls
- Lake Mývatn
- Jökulsárgljúfur canyon
- Troll peninsula and Eyjafjörður
Fly through the landscape of The Game of Thrones, Oblivion and Prometheus, filmed in this dramatic landscape.
The route explores Goðafoss and then over Lake Mývatn, with its numerous scenic attractions and geothermal phenomena, pseudo craters, sulphur 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 Dettifoss, a spectacular waterfall where cascades plunge from a height of 144 feet (44 meters) into a narrow canyon.
From the Dettifoss waterfall we follow the magnificent canyons, before turning homeward bound for Akureyri, overflying the Þeystareykjar lavafield and geothermal area, with sink holes Little Hell and Big Hell. Relax and take in the Troll Peninsula mountain range come to view in the west.
On the descent into Eyjafjörður, there is more than little chance of seeing whales on the approach into Akureyri Aiport.
