Our highland experience will begin by seeing the majestic Highland queen, Mount Herðubreið, as we fly towards Askja volcano. After exploring the hot springs of Askja, we turn towards the north side of Vatnajokull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe, and then we'll continue onward to Kverkfjöll mountain range, a currently active volcanic site.
On the homeward journey towards Akureyri, sit back and take in the view of Ódáðahraun, the vast lava desert, and Holuhraun, the most recent lava field in Iceland.
