About the Trip

Experience a week of activities that will give you an acute sense of the magnificent geologic wonders that make up Iceland. Iceland is a terrain unlike any other: situated on the divide between two continents, the features of this country include black sand beaches, geothermic waters, volcanic formations and glacial movement. Together these features instill both an otherworldly feeling as well as a deep respect for nature.

On this trip, you’ll be exploring lava tubes, hiking glaciers, ice climbing, checking out massive waterfalls, and river rafting. You’ll even have a chance to ride Icelandic ponies! The highlights of the week will include snorkeling the famous Silfra fissure (A UNESCO World Heritage Site literally situated in the divide between two continents, and filled with the clearest and bluest water on Earth!) You’ll also have a chance to descend into the world’s only intact dormant volcano – an amazing opportunity that will remain with you for years. This will be an unforgettable week of breathtaking landscapes and once in a lifetime experiences.
