Adventurous Glider Flight Over Lava Fields

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 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.

Att.: the Glider is a two seater aircraft, for just you and your pilot, making each experience totally personalised.
