    Adventurous Glider Flight over Lava Fields

    This is a glider flight you won’t forget. Once the Glider has been towed aloft by a powered aircraft it relies on thermals or ridge soaring to stay airborne. Gliders have an excellent glide range and can reach a top speed of up to 280 km/h.

    Silently soaring in a glider flight above the lunar-like landscape of Icelandic lava fields, just outside of Reykjavík, is an out of this world experience! The Glider will take you over the Blue Mountains area scattered with volcanic craters. You will see how the lava once flowed, now frozen in volcanic veins across the ground.

    Your view to the West is of the Greater Reykjavík area and the Atlantic Ocean. To the East you will see the South Coast stretching down the horizon towards Eyjafjallajökull. To take the experience on an even higher level you can ask your pilot for some aerobatic moves. This is addictive, consider yourself warned.

    Airtime: up to 20 minutes depending on wind conditions, but always awesome!
    Total time: approx. 2 hours including the drive to and from central Reykjavík
    Pick up: if selected, starts 30 min. before your booked time
