Meet your pilot at the private Skaftafell airport in south Iceland, where you will hear about the flight plan for your tour.
Being one of the most photogenic tours, the black sands and riverbeds of Skeiarrsandur might offer you the best photo of your life if you bring a good camera. If you are lucky enough to be on this tour in the right light, you might be able to capture the unique colors of the riverbeds as sand, mud and seaweed flush down the river: giving you yellow, red, brown, green and blue as well as several other colors in the glacier rivers. Even if you don't get to see these colors, the riverbeds are unique and beautiful against the black sand. On our way back, your pilot will fly you over Skeiarrjkull, which is a massive glacier outlet from Vatnajkull, the biggest glacier in Iceland.As you land back in Skaftafell, you can take time to chat with your pilot about the route you flew and the sights you saw, and to ask any questions you might have.
