Reykjanes Peninsula

Grindavik, Iceland

Fly over an active volcano with the potential to catch the next lava flow.

The Reykjanes Peninsula in Southern Iceland is experiencing a period of volcanic unrest, with eruptions that have occurred each of the last four years. Fly over fresh lava and view volcanic craters. See steam rising from the vents in the ground and the nearby geothermal power plant, and catch incredible views of waves crashing along the shore and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.

Things to know

Due to the dynamic nature of the volcanic system in the Reykjanes Peninsula, the volcano may or may not be erupting on the day of your flight. Either way, there is plenty to see on your private drone flight over this active volcanic region. Our mobile guide will position the drone at the best viewing location. Check out the Icelandic Met Office for the latest volcano updates.
