Trip Description

Join CWRU as we journey through Iceland: the north, south, and west of the island, enjoying the long evening twilight of the northern summer and visit a wondrous variety of small settlements, good-size towns and amazing natural landscapes. This captivating geological wonderland offers the opportunity to explore dramatic phenomena: colossal glaciers, active volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, glacial rivers, cascading waterfalls, moss-covered lava fields, and glacial lagoons. Renowned for its spellbinding beauty and stunning landscape, Iceland is the only place on Earth where you can stand on top of the Atlantic Ocean’s submarine mountain chain - for the island is the only place where the chain peaks up above sea level! From this perch, we can walk from North America to Europe.
