    Excellent experience
    Book tickets on line very easily or just turn up as shows run continuously. Located in the old harbour area only 10-15 minutes walk from centre of Reykjavík. Couple of talk over intro rooms to start the Iceland history before the flyover ride. The ride itself very good and a great intro to the many sights you will see on a big trip to Iceland seen from above..excellent experience worth a visit.

    Beautiful experience
    We thoroughly enjoyed FlyOver Iceland. It was a beautiful conclusion to our trip. The facility was clean, safety was clearly a priority and the employees were friendly and helpful. Four starts because I think it should have been priced lower.

    Really cool, kids LOVED it
    I was unsure about spending this much on a short activity but we had heard excellent things so decided to do it. My kids LOVED it. My daughter really wanted to go a second time. I am prone to motion sickness and did feel sick (thus why we did not go again) but it was still a very cool experience.

    breathtaking experience
    This experience is not to be missed! You will see parts of Iceland that most others never will. The technology and expertise in creating this "film" is incredible. This is a Disney World experience 10 times over. We held our breath, lifted our feet, ducked our heads as we flew over gorgeous Iceland.

    Cool Adventure on Layover
    We had less than two days in Iceland, taking advantage of the Iceland Air layover option. So, we didn’t have opportunity to do much outside of Reykjavík, except for Blue Lagoon. This experience provided us a good alternative. Certainly look for promo codes to get a discount on their regular price and order online. The experience consisted of the extremely cool flyover plus two other preview experiences which were entertaining as well. Our kids 8-15 all really enjoyed it.

    Amazing experience, highly recommended.
    Something that you must do/see when visiting Iceland. All 3 parts of the show are great and the flight over Iceland is truly breathtaking. I have been visiting with friends and family, including kids, all were amazed. Highly recommended :)

    Breathtaking experience—highly recommend!
    The quality of this production was a wonderful surprise! Takes you on an exhilarating “ride”—complete with motion—over, around and through some of the most stunning scenery you’ll ever see. We saw it on the first day of our trip to Iceland, and loved it so much we came back and did it again on our last day, just before flying home. Don’t miss this!

    Great way to end our trip
    We LOVED this! Awesome way to end our trip in Iceland. Makes us want to come back and visit all of the places in Iceland that we didn't get a chance to see on this trip. I have two kids, ages 10 and 7 and they wanted to go again and again. This is much like the Flight of Avatar ride in Animal Kingdom, if anyone is familiar with Disney. Great pre-show and introduction to Iceland history. I would go again when we visit Iceland in the future. Great gift shop too! I bought a beautiful pair of earrings that I didn't see in any of the other shops on the main street. Definitely do FlyOver Iceland!

    Fly over Iceland
    Very nice show with stunning images in a well designed cinema. Sometimes you get the real sensation of being flying over mountains, volcanos, cascades and so on. Iceland is a beautiful country full of different landscapes. For me the only critical point is the short duration of this "flight". At least ten more minutes would have been desirable. You can't get enough of admiring the changing colours of the voyage through the country.

    Excellent
    Fantastic and exhilarating experience. It was more fun than I even imagined and exceptional camera work. It felt like I was actually in the scenery. Well worth the money and great for both our parents in their 70s and our kids in their late primary years.

Wow best money I have spent this holiday, three people, one being 84 and we truly enjoyed it, my father does have mobility issues and needs a walking stick but didn’t have any problems using this attraction as It’s very well organised and a free bus there and back into Reykjavík so bonus ... the cafe don’t bother, we waited 50 minutes for three soup and one coffee ... plus not one smile to be had from the two girls behind the counter, so unlike all the other staff members who were all very lovely.
We would do this activity again if we are ever back in Iceland but just minus the cafe xx enjoy

On the face of it, it looks like an expensive ‘treat’ but it is worth every penny. There’s a couple of pre-shows which effectively set the scene and build the anticipation. The actual ride can only be described as incredibly realistic. You get a sensation of flying over the landscape similar to being in a helicopter but without the associated noise and restricted view. Only negative is it could be twice as long :)

This show only lasts for 30 mins and only 15 were the flyover. Also we were charged the new entry price but this price was not displayed on the board. Didn’t realise it until my son in law got his text from bank with cost and was stunned. Went back in to ask why we had paid more than the price displayed and was told they hadn’t got round to changing on the board ! Whilst the flyover was good we didn’t think it was value for money and were disappointed no we footage of live volcano. Sadly in our opinion NOT good value for money.

After having stayed in Reykjavik for a week, we kept Fly over Iceland as one of the last things to visit. Having made the trip with our baby, we were not able to visit the wild paths and sites of this beautiful country. But Fly over Iceland compensated for it (minimum height requirement is 40 inches which unfortunately our little one was yet to reach). I was not prepared to be mind blown like I was. On the final part (out of 3) of the visit which is the actual flying simulation, I experienced a euphoric moment like never felt before with tears of joy and ecstasy from being able to witness the shear beauty and raw nature like nowhere else in the world... Fly over Iceland is one of the best man-made/technological attractions I have ever experienced and I recommend it to each and every person, especially parents who travel with their babies and are not able to fully explore the country - Fly over Iceland is a must. 10/10.

Very expensive, it amounted to £30 for 30 minutes of entertainment. The flyover was a fabulous experience, a little fast at times and made your head spin but an incredible effect that allowed you to experience Iceland in all its finery. But it amounted to a £1 a minute entertainment, perhaps we should have read the website more throughly but we did it expect to be in and out in 30 minutes, it left what was a great experience slightly gained when your ushered through the gift shop and back out within half an hour, we left disappointed and feeling slightly robbed. If money is no issues I would recommend or I would put the money to an actual excursion and try and see a site in person.

BEWARE of the little gift shop. I stupidly bought a small box of tea and a small jar of sea salt without properly working out the currency conversion. My credit card shows these cost me £22.74 The flight costs around £24 and is excellent, worth the money. However the horrific cost of the token gifts would now make me reluctant to recommend the attraction without people being recommended to avoid the gift shop entirely. I know - buyer beware. Now you are aware you can avoid the rip off.

Wow, what an experience! A wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning. Such a shame that it’s not publicised well. I only found it by accident. Seeing the whole of Iceland in winter can be very difficult and dangerous, therefore, to be able to see all the seasons through a bird’s eye view was utterly amazing. It is worth listening in advance to the three YouTube videos outlining how the scenes were filmed over a period of around 1.5 years, this gives you a real appreciation of what has been achieved here. As for the ride, exhilirating is an understatement.

This was a fun way to see different landscapes of Iceland. The experience was real enough to grab on to the bars when we were going up or down and lift our feet as we were flying over something. The scenery was spectacular and there was so much to see since the screen was at least 180 degrees. We wish it was longer since it was so fun.

My wife and I came here based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews and were not disappointed. The price seemed a little steep at first but we were looking for an indoor activity to escape the wind and cold so we stopped. So glad we did, what an incredible experience. Beautifully done IMAX presentation with some interactive sections of mist, smell, and motion. The visual imagery is simply stunning and immersive. Extremely well done and easily worth the price of admission. A must do, especially if this is your first stop in Iceland.

Very cool experience. The show itself was a bit short for the price, but during the show it was very impressive. The mist...the smells...the slight movement of the seats, it was great. The pre-show exhibit of the Longhouse and the brief history of the island and elves/trolls were both interesting and they helped justify the cost. However, again, $120 US was a bit too much for 2 people for a 25min experience.
