Grandeur of Iceland

AUG. 2-10, 2021
Reykjavik, Eyrarbakki, Borgarnes, Reykholt, Pingvellir National Park

Behold the inspiring landscapes of Iceland during this unforgettable seven-night adventure. From our base in the cultural capital of Reykjavik, we’ll journey through lands of unspeakable beauty to encounter unique land formations, waterfalls, hot springs and authentic, charming villages. Watch as fascinating history and culture are brought to life at a storytelling performance, learn how the country has become a world leader in sustainability and green living, and honor the memory of Iceland’s greatest medieval writer. During an ocean cruise, scan the horizon for magnificent breaching whales and thrill to darling puffins as they glide on gentle sea breezes. At the mystical Golden Circle, we’ll gaze at bubbling mud pools and geysers, followed by a visit to a family-run farm to indulge in a delicious traditional feast. This small-group adventure features seven nights at a first-class hotel in Reykjavik, plus an extensive meal plan including wine with dinner.

UCLA Faculty on Tour

Kevin McKeegan
Dept. of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences
Kevin McKeegan is a Distinguished Professor and former Chair of UCLA's Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences. He is an expert in the laboratory analysis of extraterrestrial materials and is one of only a few people who have had the privilege to hold samples of asteroids and comets, the Earth and Mars, and the Moon and the Sun. In recognition of his work on understanding processes occurring in the early solar system, the International Astronomical Union named an asteroid after him. In addition to specialty classes in geochemistry and cosmochemisty, McKeegan teaches subjects such as plate tectonics, natural disasters, and evolution of the Earth to large audiences in general education classes and he can hardly wait to get to Iceland to see some of these concepts 'in action'!
