TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT – Join our email list for more information.
This 7-day (6 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 to 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 about Plate Tectonics and glacial landforms. Check out some more of our photos from the 2019 trips
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.
Cost: $US3,895 per person (not including airfares to/from Keflavík International Airport. (Shared rooms. Single supplement available – US$955 pp)).
What about the pandemic?
We want to keep everyone safe. We will not run a trip if there was a risk that you would be hurt or injured in any way – including infectious diseases. If travel restrictions are not lifted, trips will be postponed for 12 months. If travel is allowed, we will be insisting that everyone wears masks and maintains social distancing. If a vaccine is available, we will be asking people for proof they have been vaccinated. If not, we will be asking participants to provide us proof of a recent negative COVID test before travel (details will be sent to you a few weeks before departure). These are not unfair conditions – but ways that we can ensure everyone is safe.
