Fire & Ice
Iceland - the land of Fire and Ice and the the great forces that sculpture the island are in focus in the spectacular trip! Experience the extreme contrast Icelandic nature has to offer by flying across Iceland’s volcanic landscape to land on top of a glacier! The journey to the glacier takes us over lava fields, craters and colourful mountain ridge. Once the lave fields are behind us we enter into the highlands with all its colours and glaciers. We land on Langjökull at an exclusive location, only accessible by helicopter. There you can take a moment to breath in the fresh mountain air, experience the complete silence, enjoy the magnificent view, and even make snow angels. As we take to the skies to return back, you will see deep crevasses and steep ice falls that make an adventurous setting. There are no special effects like in a movie, this totally surreal setting is all real. We peek in the crater of the majestic shield volcano Skjaldbreiður and fly over the tectonic rift separating America and Europe in the historical Thingvellir National Park. We fly over geothermal hot springs and the largest geothermal power plant in the world. We land at a remote area to witness, smell and feel the geothermal energy with bubbling mud pits and steaming hot surface. Finally our flight path concludes with a flight over of Reykjavik to give us an aerial overview of the city.
