Anyone who shares the belief that geology rocks will know that their subject and Iceland go hand in hand. From the Mid Atlantic Ridge to the Laki Craters, the Icy North is a motherland for anyone with an eye for geology.
Last year, a keen team of rock lovers embarked on an adventure hitting th
e key geological spots in the country, such as Vík to see the columnar basalt and the ash from the troublesome volcano, Eyjafjallajökull.
In fact, the trip to revisit in 2014 is being brought forward by a year – does this sound like your kind of Summer 2013?
We’ve come up with a pick ‘n’ mix style guided tour (there’s even liquorice!) that is suitable for anyone with a geological interest. Whether you have been to Iceland before or not, we are seriously thinking about running a tour in July.
For first time visitors we’d start with the Reykjanes Peninsula, the Snaefellsness and the Mid Atlantic Ridge, but if you’ve been for Iceland before, this trip is also designed for you! For returning travellers, you can revisit the places you know, and/or explore a new areas over four to five days. We’re thinking the Laki Craters, the Fjallabak, Skaftafell and the Glacial Lagoon at Jokulsarlon.
If you’d like to read more about the last tour, or see some photos of the sites mentioned (just in case you can’t put name to place on all of them!)
