The Iceland Adventure 2001
Day 5: Monday October 7, 2001
The group got up early and had breakfast
and were in the main lobby by 8:30 am to climb aboard our private bus.
This guided tour excursion captured the
essence of Iceland. We visited the town of Selfoss. We enjoyed a stop at a geothermal-heated greenhouse
in Eden where everything from roses to bananas grows
After the stop at Gullfoss, the group stopped for lunch at Geysir. This geyser field offered a wonderful opportunity to see an active geyser. Some students ate at the dinner while others enjoyed geothermal heated soup and ravioli.
Our final stop before heading back to the
hotel was Thingvellir. Like the first Vikings setters who traveled once a year
from all over Iceland to the plains of Thingvellir, the group visited this
historic landmark where laws were discussed and future courses of the country
were chartered. Now a national park, this is the site where tectonic plates divide
the continents of North America and Eurasian. For more information on the
geology of this area, go to the Geology page.
