The idea of landmasses suspended in the sky, whether as individual islands or entire chains, is one of my all-time favorite staple visuals in fantasy - not least because it's just so quintessentially fantastical and not present in real life - D&D 4e's Forgotten Realms, maligned as they were by the community at large, provided me with those in spades, and many times have I tried to make a setting composed of such landscapes.
And yet... As far as I'm aware, there is not a place on Golarion that's like this - at least, none that I'm aware of, where this is a prominent and hallmark feature. If there is some obscure 1e module or scenario that has them, I'd love to hear about it.
(I'm aware there's things like the floating spires of Quantium in Nex, or that one still-flying Shory city somewhere in Tian Xia, but I'm talking more about honest to god floating mountain chains and whatnot, rather than artificial structures suspended by arcane magic or what have you.)
Failing that...I suppose this is a soft request to Paizo to introduce a region (in Arcadia, south Garund, or undefined parts of Casmaron, perhaps?) that has those - for a high fantasy anything-goes kitchen-sink world, this does strike me as something that's currently missing, even though I realize there's challenges to it (with regards to maps, for instance).
