Iceland’s history has been shaped over thousands of years by its natural surroundings, from tons of glaciers to bubbling volcanoes. Join a seminar to explore Iceland's 132 volcanoes and over 400 glaciers through images, videos, and stories with a local expert.

In this conversation, we will journey to the most unique places in Iceland, focusing predominantly on the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Vatnajökull National Park but touching on other landmark events such as the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption. In this seminar, we will discuss the science behind moving glaciers, the discovery of ice caves, the history, and eruptions of the largest volcano in Iceland, climate change's effects on this turbulent area, and the beauty that is left behind.

Led by an expert on Iceland's outdoor terrain, Ryan Connolly, this interactive seminar will focus on the relationship between volcanoes and glaciers in Iceland. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of Iceland's unique terrain and why the name, the Land of Fire and Ice, is so fitting.

Ryan Connolly is a Scottish-born, permanent resident of Iceland. After stepping foot on all 7 continents in 2016, he used his expertise in exploration and nature to set up Hidden Iceland, one of the highest rated tour companies in Iceland on Tripadvisor.

Fascinating conversation about Iceland

Ryan was a great host, very enthusiastic, showed fantastic photos plus a couple of short videos. I learned many things about the volcanoes and glaciers that I'd never heard about before. Hope to someday go on one of his tours in person.

Volcanoes and Glaciers- Icelandic Ying and Yang

We very much enjoyed Ryan’s discussion/tour of both the glaciers and the volcanoes in Iceland and their relationship to each other and impacts on Iceland. Enjoyed the travelogue portions with lots of really interesting facts. Looking forward to a visit to the country exploring glaciers, ice caves and volcanic terrain and want far more than an a visit to the Blue Lagoon with a million other tourists...
