TRIP IS FULL – please join our waiting list. If we get enough numbers, we will run a second trip.
This trip is already extremely popular. Numbers are VERY limited. Register early to avoid disappointment.
This 6-day (5 night) field trip to Iceland highlights the amazing geology of this Mid-Ocean Ridge country. We will walk across a plate boundary, see recent active volcanism, climb amazing craters, walk on glaciers and so much more. Each and every turn of the road has amazing sites, waterfalls and the greenest landscapes imaginable.
Iceland is an amazing place to learn and share how Plate Tectonics and glacial landforms can be taught in the classroom. We will work on some field skills as well as modeling inquiry.
We will visit historic sites, including where all geysers obtained their name and where the parliament of the oldest running democracy met in the open air of a rift zone of a mid-ocean ridge. We will bath in geothermal hot springs and see how the Icelandic economy uses geothermal power.
This trip is truly amazing. It will change your life (it changed mine the first time I visited)!
Cost: $US3,295 per person (not including airfares to/from Keflavík International Airport. (Shared rooms. Single supplement available).
