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.

Exploring Iceland with a leading geologist-teacher-adventurer in her field, Dr. Jo helped me see that to truly appreciate the island culturally and historically is to know the fire and ice that shaped it geologically. With more than 10 years of generating authentic experiences in Iceland on and beyond the Game of Thrones tourist paths, Dr. Jo opens up the more remote treasures most visitors find difficult to access especially the active volcano system Hekla and the massively perspective-changing Vatnajökull Glacier. Her years of building a network of contacts and local connections throughout the country also ensured we had opportunities for meaningful conversations with local Icelanders, whose unique perspectives profoundly shaped the way I perceive the world. Be ready for a transformative experience.

This tour of Iceland will leave you more knowledgeable of geological processes in general and more specifically of Iceland’s geologic history. It’ll also leave you in awe and wanting to visit again. You’ll see beautiful landscapes and be able to learn the reason for why the land looks the way it does at certain spots. Iceland is a tremendous country that provides endless adventure to explore and discover. Dr. Tamie Jovanelly is so incredibly knowledgeable about geology and Iceland, and she’s also a lot of fun to be around! Just a few of the activities we did included: hiked up a glacier, relaxed in the Blue Lagoon, toured an ice cave, and visited an Icelandic beach. Go on this trip! You won’t regret it!!
