You’ll watch as the surrounding buildings get smaller and smaller during your ascension. As you take in the view of the city from above, the pilot will begin to make their way to the Reykjanes Peninsula. After soaring over ancient, moss-covered lava fields, you’ll start to see the red glow of the active volcano.
The erupting fissure is surrounded by a jet-black stone field of hardened lava. In the middle, the erupting volcano constantly spits out glowing, red lava in all directions. It is a sight you will surely never forget.
