About FLY OVER ICELAND
Flyover Iceland is a unique and thrilling experience that allows visitors to soar above some of Iceland’s most stunning landscapes and natural wonders. Located in the capital city of Reykjavik, Flyover Iceland is an indoor flight simulation that uses state-of-the-art technology to provide visitors with an unforgettable aerial tour of the country.
The experience begins with visitors donning special flight suits and boarding a suspended platform that lifts them into a domed screen where they are surrounded by 360-degree views of Iceland’s breathtaking scenery. From there, the flight simulation takes visitors on a journey through some of the country’s most iconic landmarks, including glaciers, waterfalls, volcanoes, and geysers.
Throughout the flight, visitors are treated to an immersive audio-visual experience that includes a specially curated soundtrack and special effects like wind, mist, and scents to make the experience even more realistic. The simulation is designed to make visitors feel as though they are truly flying over Iceland, giving them a sense of awe and wonder that is unmatched by any other tourist attraction in the country.
One of the highlights of the experience is the stunning footage captured by the Flyover Iceland team. The team uses advanced cameras and drones to capture high-definition footage of Iceland’s landscapes, which is then projected onto the domed screen to create an immersive and realistic experience for visitors.
Overall, Flyover Iceland is a must-visit attraction for anyone looking to experience the natural beauty of Iceland in a unique and thrilling way. Whether you’re a nature lover, an adrenaline junkie, or just looking for something different to do in Reykjavik, Flyover Iceland is an experience you won’t want to miss.

Another show, ‘Step Into Our World,’ will take you on another mesmerizing and fascinating story of Iceland as you will learn about its people and the natural forces. You will live through the imaginative world of Iceland as the troll, Su Vitra, will make sure to take you on a heartfelt adventure. There is an ancient Viking longhouse awaiting you that the Icelandic Storytellers will introduce you to. There will be an iconic shadow-play projection that will further enhance the fire site and amplify the thrill of the storytelling.
Finally, the Well Of Time show will take you through the exploration of Iceland and its history.

The FlyOver Iceland experience is a gentle ride. Guests sit in chairlift-style seats and are elevated before a large, spherical screen. The visuals are enhanced by special effects, including wind and scents, to create the illusion of actually flying over the landscape. The experience is suitable for young children (must be 102 cm/40″ tall) and seniors alike. Although most people don’t experience any issues with the motion or the elevation—even those who, at times, experience such difficulties—a very small percentage of the public may find it uncomfortable. Therefore, if you are particularly susceptible to motion sickness or fear of heights, you may wish to consider refraining from participating.
We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before your booked time.
Industry guidelines advise that pregnant women should not participate in motion rides. Although FlyOver Iceland is a very gentle motion ride, we follow the industry guidelines and ask expectant mothers to refrain from taking the ride.
