See huge glaciers and gorgeous fjords at FlyOver Iceland

FlyOver Iceland is a technological wonder. It gives you this incredible feeling of flying over stunning landscapes. You sit suspended, with your feet dangling and a 20-meter (65 feet) screen. The combination of gyrations of the seat, the special effects, which include wind, mist, and scents, and the incredible footage shown on the screen create an unforgettable experience. I have been to FlyOver Iceland twice and I had a great time. Flyover Iceland shows you pearls of Icelandic nature from a unique perspective and places that are difficult to reach.

I must admit that I was pretty sceptical of FlyOver Iceland when I first heard of. I thought that since I had been all over Iceland I would not be seeing anything new. My concern was also that the show it itself was unimpressive. Well, I was dead wrong on both points.

Virtual flight over awesome Iceland

The exhibition is based on the popular Flyover Canada in Vancouver. It is a virtual flight over Iceland’s incredible nature. Guests sit in seats that move and shift in tune with what is going on the screen. Viewers are immersed in the show with help from state of the art technology. Wind and water spray helps to engage the senses.

Stomachs flutter

The show takes you all over the country. I think it shows you about 30 locations all over Iceland. The production value is incredible and the ‘flight’ over Icelandic nature is shockingly realistic. We found ourselves holding the rail, our stomachs fluttered and just laughed with sheer joy. If I have one gripe, it is that the beauty and the number of details you would like to follow as you ‘fly’ over the landscapes is just overwhelming. I want to ‘take flight’ again so I can take it all in better. My brain can only handle so much awesomeness!

Location of Flyover Iceland

The show is located in the Grandi area of western Reykjavik.
