Sharing Our Stories: Iceland Land of Fire & Ice

New Zealand falls

Sharing Our Stories
Iceland: Land of Fire and Ice
Presented by Merrill Anderson


Join Merrill Anderson on a photo slide show of their 2022 tour of this fascinating country.  Merrill will be supported in the presentation and in answering questions by Dale Gray, who has made multiple trips to Iceland, and by Stewart Griest, who has also been to Iceland and is knowledgeable about Iceland’s geology.

Merrill and Kathy and 2 other couples took a 16 day self-drive circumnavigation of Iceland in late May/early June 2022.  The slide show will feature images from their tour, including Rekyavik, geologic features, glacier lagoons, lots of waterfalls, general scenery, bird life including puffins, whale watching, and a final spa adventure.

There will be brief introductory comments about the history of Iceland and  the fascinating geology of the island. While not presenting himself as an Iceland tour expert, Merrill will share some of the advantages and limitations of the choices they made for their trip.  Even with 16 days, some sightseeing goals and activities dropped off the list, to say nothing of the locations and activities which were not available due to time of year.  Merrill will be happy to respond to questions about their experiences.
