Mýflug Air is an Icelandic EASA approved airline, specialising in air ambulance and charter flights, and during summer, they also offer sightseeing flights from Lake Mývatn.
They have more than 25 years of flying experience and work closely with most of the domestic airlines in Iceland. Their pilots are highly experienced in flying under demanding conditions and Mýflug Air strives to provide the best and most efficient service possible.
A charter flight can be suitable when scheduled flights don’t meet your time frame. Mýflug Air are flexible and are able to carry out most requests for flights within Iceland as well as international flights.
Mýflug Air flies a Beechcraft KingAir 200, which seats up to 9 passengers. It has both the high and fast qualities of a modern jet and is capable of operating from shorter runways than any aircraft in its class, making it ideal for charter flights.
The airport by Lake Mývatn is conveniently located in regards to some of the most interesting and beautiful scenery in Iceland. Dettifoss, Asbyrgi, Askja, Mt. Herdubreid and Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull and the newly formed Holuhraun lava field are all less than 1 hour away!
There is a 2 person minimum for most tours. Their tours are not operated on a fixed schedule but instead the flights are operated on request therefore, the tours can be modified to meet your needs.
We recommend Tour 3, their most popular tour. In this 90 minute sightseeing flight you’ll fly around Mývatn Lake and its surroundings, over Ódáðahraun lava field towards the stratovolcano Askja and from there to Kverkafjöll mountains, where you can observe the striking contrasts between thermal heat and Vatnjökull glacier (only the largest one in Europe!). On the way back you’ll see Mt. Herðubreið, Mt. Hverfell, Mt. Námafjall and Krafla before returning to the airport.
