Our Story...

This was the opportunity of a lifetime to explore the land of Fire and Ice! We couldn't believe all of the geological riches (glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls... hot springs!) that Iceland offered us. The beauty in the geology alone is like nowhere else on earth, and our group of 10 Illini shared the views and the excursions together. Take a look at our photos to see what life is like on an island created by tectonic plates.
