Our aerial route then takes us to the stunning Thorsmork Valley, an emerald oasis of life, nestled between a pair of massive glaciers. It is so named because Icelandic legend believes that it was created by a mighty strike of Thor’s hammer and its beauty will give you a profound sense of the power of mother nature. Our journey then continues over the notorious Eyjafjallajökull Glacier whose violent eruption in 2010 downed much of Europe’s air fleet. As we fly over the area we also get a glimpse of Myrdalsjokull glacier. We will also see the newly formed craters Magni and Modi, which were created in the eruption and named after the sons of Thor.
Our return journey will be no less spectacular as we pick our back to Reykjavik, swooping over black sand beaches, vast mountain ranges, volcanically scarred coastlines and a plethora of other amazing sights before we arrive back in Reykjavik. There is no better way to explore the land of fire and ice than from the air and it will create memories that last a lifetime.
The entire tour lasts around three-four hours, which includes two landings, where you can spend 15-20 minutes exploring the spectacular surrounding area or capturing the epic experience with your camera.
