Join the Universal Model team on a special excursion to land of Fire & Ice on a 11-day tour from July 24 to August 3! Imagine a place where stunning glaciers meet massive volcanoes, where water cascades over basalt cliffs forming Europe’s largest waterfall, black beaches, geysers; the one place on Earth where you can hike the longest mountain range on the planet—the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Join Universal Model Author Dean Sessions and Editor Russ Barlow for this once-in-a-lifetime geo-tour as they explore Iceland with professional tour guide, Ronald Gudnason, a native Icelander and UM enthusiast.
The tour begins in Hveragerdi, a town built around geothermal hot springs, which contribute to oceans of flowers in the summer. It is here that you can stand with one foot on each of two of the Earth’s continental plates; the North American Plate and the European Plate. After three days of spectacular scenery, we’ll enjoy a day of rest a renewal with the option of attending local churches. After that, we head east to Skaftafell National Park, Glacier Lagoon, and Dyrfjöll mountains, to name just a few of the places we’ll visit, each revealing traces of the Universal Flood. As we eventually make our way back to Reykjavik, filled with newly acquired wonder and countless unforgettable experiences, you’ll take with you a unique Iceland experience unlike any other. The UM Volume II book cover has a world-famous image of a waterfall in Iceland and we will be visiting this very site on the tour. To view a slide show of the UM Iceland Summer Tour click here.
