Flightseeing over Laki Craters and Surroundings | Skaftafell - South

Discover the most remote corners of Iceland on this scenic flight over the Skaftafell Nature Reserve. Enjoy the striking contrasts of the glacial rivers and lakes, as you fly over the outlet glaciers Skeiðarárjökull and Síðujökull, draining South from Europe’s largest ice cap, Vatnajökull. The bird’s eye view reveals a breathtaking mosaic of textures. Reach the Lakagígar craters, a 27-kilometer long volcanic fissure consisting of more than 130 craters, testifying of the violent eruption that occurred in 1783 over an eight-month period, and changed Iceland’s face forever.
