A Family Vacation Style Journey to Iceland: The Land of
Fire & Ice, with Volcanoes, Hot Springs, Vents, Glaciers and everything in-between

Presented by: Dustin Leavitt

 

ABSTRACT: Iceland is one of the few tourist destinations which is now open to vaccinations. It is also the only destination that has
had an ongoing volcanic eruption which you can readily travel to and get close up and personal with. Follow a Geologist as they burn up some vacation time traveling through Iceland to some of it’s more breath taking geologic features. The barrier to entry for this one is low as the presenter is not a volcanologist by any stretch of the imagination, so enjoy the footage and a very light sprinkling of geologic theory thrown in for good measure.
