Get a unique perspective on Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier, and Grímsvötn, Iceland's most active volcano, on this scenic flight from Skaftafell— with luck, the volcanic crater will blow steam, making for a rare photo opportunity. As you ascend into the air, admire the basalt cliffs surrounding Svartifoss, located in Vatnajökull National Park, and look out for waterfalls.  On the way back, your pilot flies over Grænalón glacier lagoon and Skeiðarárjökull outlet glacier.
