About Us

We started Adventure Geology Tours to share our love of geology and travel with you. When you choose Adventure Geology Tours, we will take you to all the famous “selfie spots” that you’ve seen on social media, but unlike your friends who visited, you will walk away with a deeper appreciation of nature through the geologically-focused lectures and daily interpretation.

Additionally, our Iceland tour offers many more active experiences than the big-box competition with visits to museums, geothermal power plants, lava caves, boat tours, glacial hikes, and geothermal spas, like the popular Blue Lagoon. We know that this is likely your vacation so why not have an Icelandic vodka tasting at the foot of a glacier or wine & cheese tasting at the top of a glacial fjord? Plus, as an added bonus, the charismatic company owners are a heck of a lot of fun! “Active exploration with enthusiastic geologists” is our company mantra. Consider joining our trip as a solo-traveler, couple, family, or group and let’s learn some geology!
