I'll start by saying that I am not a geologist, yet this was still one of the top trips of my life, unforgettable! Dr. Tamie Jovanelly and her husband Joey are a wonderful team and coordinated an excellent group trip. We went to all the cool spots you see advertised, and much more! We learned a lot about geology in fun and easy-to-understand ways... geology facts that will blow your mind! Iceland is such a unique place with lots to see but this tour makes me feel like I didn't miss anything. They were great at organizing and making sure we were well-prepared and knew what to expect. The food was delicious, accommodations were great, and the activities were well-spaced. The group felt like each day topped the last in unbelievable ways. We had some action-packed days followed by restful days. We saw a recent lava flow, hiked on a glacier, went on a boat in a glacial lagoon, saw icebergs on a black sand beach, hiked to multiple huge breathtaking waterfalls, explored rocky and sandy beaches, toured a geothermal power plant, talked to a local ranger, went inside a lava tube, hiked to the top of volcano craters, saw smelly fumaroles and mud pots, watched geysers blow, and so much more. They made travel stress-free by handling all the logistics as well as covering lots of details, including music that matched our itinerary for the day. They are super fun to travel with as well as kind and interesting people. I cannot rave about them enough and would join them on another trip in a heartbeat!

The entire trip was great - I learned a tremendous amount about glaciers and volcanoes, and each activity was well organized and managed. Walking on a glacier and exploring a lava tube we're just two of the highlights.

Iceland is one of the most unique places I have visited. I knew very little about this little country before going, so I was anxious to learn more. This guided tour was absolutely incredible! Dr. Tamie Jovanelly knows the island like the back of her hand, and she is highly knowledgable of Icelandic geology as well as geology in general. She maximized our time while we were there without making the trip feel rushed or too crammed. We got to hike on a glacier, visit the Blue Lagoon Spa, trek up and down a volcano, and so much more! This really is a land of fire and ice and deserves to be seen. If you want a fun, yet well-planned tour of Iceland look no further! You will not find a better guided tour than right here, so book today!

I went to Iceland with Dr. Jovanelly in the summer of 2018 on a study abroad trip. I can't imagine going to Iceland without her. This is by far the best way to see everything you need to see in Iceland with an expert on Iceland Geology. As someone who is fairly well traveled, Iceland is the coolest place in the whole world and Dr. Jo makes certain that you see the common tourist sights and also the spots that the other tours don't make. She gives you not only an introduction to the geology and history of Iceland, but also the culture there. I loved the glacial walk and the ice cave the very best. Go on this trip, you will not regret it!

My experience on this Iceland tour was influential in determining what I wish to do with my life and career. The natural beauty on display was breathtaking, and the information on Glaciers and Volcanos is some of the best you will get period. I would highly recommend taking this tour if you have a passing interest in geology, or wish to find yourself lost in the beauty of the natural world.
