The Flying Buggy – Adventure Flight Experience

This is the ultimate adventurous introductory flight over the stunning nature surrounding Reykjavík. The aircraft is a two-seater, slow flying “Ultralight” aircraft, able to fly low over the ground. The wings are overhead and the windows open fully, giving you a perfectly unhindered view of the ground below. Be prepared for an unparalleled experience and photographic view! You will go in tandem with a fully qualified and experienced Ultralight Aircraft Instructor.

You will experience: the joy of flight and pure feeling of freedom only a tiny aircraft can give, coastline skimming, up-close mountain soaring, bird spotting. Your aerial view: the vast Atlantic ocean, Reykjavík city and it’s tiny islands, rugged mountains and the geothermal area producing the steam giving Reykjavík it’s name (Smoky Bay). Adrenaline moves, optional: aerobatic stomach-churning moves (if that’s your cup of tea); wing-overs, tight turns. If conditions allow you might get to take the wheel (joystick, actually).

We recommend this introductory flight as a great way to experience the freedom of flight and the beauty of Reykjavík, Iceland from above. From a unique point of view, with a local free flight instructor.
