Dear alumni, parents, and friends of Dickinson College,
March is one of the best months to spot the spectacular Northern Lights in
Iceland, and I invite you to explore this land of re and ice with Dickinson
geologist Ben Edwards and an expert trip manager/local guide. is
customized itinerary features numerous active volcanoes and a geothermal
landscape unlike anywhere else in the world. You will experience bustling
cities and quiet seaside villages, sample local cuisine and, as long as we have
dark nights and clear skies, enjoy several opportunities to see the Northern
Lights dance across the night sky.
You will stay in modern three- and four-star hotels, perfect for exploring
or just relaxing. You will spend a total of two nights in the capital city of
Reykjavík, two nights in the countryside near the west Iceland town of
Borgarnes, two nights in the southern town of Kirkjubæjarklaustur, and
one night surrounded by some of Iceland’s best-known volcanoes in Hekla.
An expert trip manager/guide handles all the logistics, so you can relax,
enjoy your experience, and learn.
Highlights include:
• A guided walking tour of Reykjavík, Iceland’s vibrant capital city, as
well as time on your own to explore museums, shops, and galleries
• A tour through the Saga Valley and its volcanic craters, waterfalls,
and hot springs
• A visit to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, a mountainous stretch of land
jutting out from Iceland’s west coast, including its charming villages
and Kirkjufell, one of Iceland’s most photographed mountains
• A visit to the Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum where you can sample
Icelands famous hákarl, fermented Greenland shark—if you dare!
• A tour around the Golden Circle: the UNESCO World Heritage
site of Þingvellir National Park, the bubbling mud ats and erupting
geysers at the Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss, the awe-
inspiring double waterfall
• A chance to walk along black sand beaches and explore a glacial
lagoon lled with icebergs
• Tips from our local guide for photographing one of natures most
magnicent displays, the Northern Lights
• A soak in the therapeutic waters of the Blue Lagoon
• Time to explore Vatnajökull National Park, the
largest in Europe, with its waterfalls, volcanoes,
and mountains
We hope you will join Dickinson alumni and
Professor Edwards for this unforgettable
lifelong learning adventure.

Director of Alumni Relations
Ben Edwards is a professor of Earth
Sciences who rst visited Iceland in
1995, and has been making regular
visits (about once every two years) ever
since to study the island’s volcanoes
and geology. He has taught courses on
minerals, rocks, soils, environmental
disasters, Arctic climate change, and
volcanoes at Dickinson since arriving
in Carlisle in 2002. His main research
focus is interactions between volcanoes
and glaciers, and Edwards has taken
many groups of Dickinson students to
see Icelandic volcanoes since 2005. He
has also led trips for Dickinson alumni
to Iceland, Italy, and the Galapagos
Islands. In addition to Iceland, Edwards
has traveled across the globe to study
ice-volcano interactions and climate
change, including Russia, Alaska, British
Columbia, Chile, Peru, Greenland,
and the Canadian High Arctic. He
has published multiple peer-reviewed
scientic articles about volcanoes
and volcanic eruptions, including a
book on ‘Glaciovolcanism’ and papers
about the infamous 2010 eruption of
Eyjaallajokull in southern Iceland.
Edwards has a BA in geology from
Carleton College, an MSc. from the
University of Wyoming, and his Ph.D.
from the University of British Columbia.
His wife Kim and two daughters, Teagan
and Kaelan, have all traveled to Iceland
on ‘family’ research excursions.

Borgarörður (Saga Valley) | Borgarnes
In the morning, enjoy a guided panoramic tour of
the highlights of Icelands exciting capital. en head
to Borgarörður, known as the Saga Valley because it
is the setting of many of the tales from the Icelandic
Sagas. Climb up the Grábrók volcanic crater, then warm up at Deildartunguhver, Europes
most powerful hot spring, which produces 47 gallons per second of nearly boiling water.
Visit Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls pouring from beneath a wide lava eld, and
Barnafoss (Childrens Falls), which has its own tragic mythological tale. In the afternoon,
check-in to our hotel near Borgarnes and enjoy a lecture, by our local guide, about the
Northern Lights. After dinner, step into the hotel garden in search of the Northern
Lights (aurora borealis) followed by a cup of hot chocolate or tea. Overnight at the 3-star
Icelandair Hotel Hamar for two nights. (B,D)
Monday, March 15: Snæfellsnes Peninsula: Breiðaörður Fjord cruise, Shark Museum,
Kirkjufell | Borgarnes
Snæfellsnes Peninsula, “the peninsula of the snowy mountain,” juts out from Iceland’s west
coast like a long arm with a clenched st at its tip, and is in many ways a microcosm of
the whole island. We travel to the charming shing town of Stykkishólmur for (weather-
permitting) a cruise in the Breiðaörður Fjord. After a light lunch, a uniquely Icelandic
treat” awaits us at the Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum, where they make hákarl, or fermented
Greenland shark. Depending on road and weather conditions, we visit the shing village of
Grundarörður, with an impressive coastline and mountains, lakes, and waterfalls behind
the village. Alongside the bay rises one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland,
Kirkjufell. On the way back to our hotel near Borgarnes, our guide provides some practical
tips for photographing the aurora borealis. Once darkness falls, chase the Lights in the
hotel’s garden and soak in the outdoor hot tubs. (B,L,D)
Tuesday, March 16: Golden Circle tour: Þingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal
Field, Gullfoss waterfall | Friðheimar Greenhouses | Hekla
Today we travel along the Hvalörður Fjord. Our rst stop is at an Icelandic wool outlet
store, to see what they do with all of the sheep we see! We continue inland to Þingvellir
National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and along the Golden Circle route where
we see steam rising from the Geysir geothermal eld, with its numerous hot springs and
bubbling pools. e original geyser is now dormant, but Strokkur, “the Churn,” erupts
regularly at ve- to ten-minute intervals. e chef of the Restaurant Geysir invites you
to taste bread freshly baked in the heated lava rocks and served with Icelandic butter,
geothermally boiled eggs, and herring. Continue on to Gullfoss, a double waterfall that
tumbles 111 feet into the Hvítá River. We
visit Friðheimars Icelandic horse stables and
geothermal greenhouses, where tomatoes are
grown year-round despite Icelands long, dark
winters. After a taste of the crop we drive to
our hotel in Hekla and check in. Tonight,

step into the darkness and search for the elusive
Northern Lights, best enjoyed from a comfortable hot
tub in the garden of the hotel, amid the peace and
stillness of rural southern Iceland. Overnight at the
3-star Fosshotel Hekla. (B,L,D)
Wednesday, March 17: South Shore: Lava Centre,
Skógar Folk Museum, Skógafoss, Reynisara |
Today we travel along the southern coast. After
breakfast, we visit the Lava Centre, a high-tech
educational exhibition depicting volcanic activity,
earthquakes, and the creation of Iceland over millions
of years. Continue on to Skógar Folk Museum, one of Icelands nest folk museums,
with an outstanding collection of farm and domestic artifacts from Icelands past as well
as an Open Air Museum with a sampling of traditional architecture. Nearby is Skógafoss,
a nearly-200-foot-high waterfall, one of the most impressive in the country. In the
afternoon, stroll on the black lava beach and along clis that are home to various bird
colonies at Reynisara. We spend two nights near Kirkjubæjarklaustur in the Vatnajökull
National Park region. e complete darkness makes this locale ideal for watching the
Northern Lights. Overnight at the 3-star Hotel Klaustur for two nights. (B,D)
ursday, March 18: Vatnajökull National Park: Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon,
Hof church | Kirkjubæjarklaustur
Todays program is all about glaciers, ice, and icebergs. We travel to Jökulsárlón, a glacial
lagoon that is one of Icelands deepest lakes and ows through a short waterway into the
Atlantic Ocean, and perhaps see seals swimming in the frigid waters. Walk on the black
sand beach, where large icebergs are frequently stranded. In the afternoon we visit the tiny
turf church at Hof and spend time exploring Vatnajökull, Europes largest national park,
which boasts Icelands highest mountain, an alpine environment, and Europes largest
glacier, which covers about 8% of Iceland. is evening we enjoy a lm presentation about
the Northern Lights. Dont go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location or you
may miss out on another chance of seeing the Northern Lights shimmering and dancing
across the night sky. (B,D)
Friday, March 19: South Shore: Vík, Seljalandsfoss waterfall | Reykjavík | Blue Lagoon
| Farewell dinner
From Kirkjubæjarklaustur we head across the Eldhraun lava eld to the village of Vík,
where we make a photo stop at an impressive black lava beach with high clis and
pounding waves. Further west we reach the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a narrow ribbon of
water that can be viewed from all sides. In the afternoon we return to Reykjavík and
have a little time at leisure to perhaps do some shopping or simply relax. is evening
we get to soak in the famous
Blue Lagoon, followed by
an Icelandic farewell dinner
and one last opportunity
to see the Northern Lights.
Around midnight we return
to Reykjavík. Overnight at the
4-star Fosshótel Reykjavík. (B,D)
Saturday, March 20: Fly home
Transfer as a group this
morning to Keavík
International Airport (KEF) for
ights homeward. (B)
“e pace was great - enough lectures about
volcanoes mixed with history of the island - with
frequent stops for better viewing opportunities.
- Carolyn, Connecticut
What to Expect
ere will be walks of approximately 1-3 miles
total per day, as much as one mile at a time. All
walks can be done at an easy pace and, aside from
walking up (and down) a few small cinder cones,
there is not much elevation gain/loss. You must be
able to walk, unassisted, over uneven terrain and
up and down steps that may be steep and without
handrails. Participants who are not able to walk or
stand unassisted for extended periods are kindly
advised not to join this tour. All participants are
expected to be physically active and not be an
impediment to others on excursions, to enjoy
traveling as part of a group, and to be ready
to experience cultural dierences. If the tour
manager decides that a participant cannot visit a
site safely or in a timely manner, their judgment
will be nal. Where possible, an alternate activity
may be suggested; additional costs may apply.
If you have any questions about your ability
to participate, we suggest that you visit your
personal physician with this brochure in hand and
discuss whether or not this program is appropriate
for you.
We ask travelers to be exible, as the itinerary
is set well ahead of time and may need to be
adapted on the y for changes in weather, ease of
access, transportation, or other factors. In mid- to
late March the weather can be unpredictable and
daytime temperatures can range from the mid-30s
to low 40s F, with a monthly rainfall average of
about 3”-8” in Reykjavík, and up to 12 hours of
daylight (plus an hour or so of “dawn and dusk”).
Dressing in layers and bringing a waterproof coat
and shoes will be necessary for this program.
Hotels have been chosen for their excellent
locations and generous comfort, and included
meals are of a very high quality. Gratuities are not
a tradition in Iceland and are neither expected
nor encouraged.

“e camaraderie of the group was excellent and
absolutely added to the enjoyment. e deciding factor
in joining the tour was the fact that Dr. Edwards
would add an important educational dimension.

my learning expectations were exceeded - they were
