There will be five short presentations/talks on a variety of geological topics which have so inspired the speakers that they, and the Council of the Society, think them well worth communicating to the rest of the Society.

Liverpool Iceland Holiday 2016
I am pleased to announce that preparations are in
hand for the next expedition to Iceland which will take place from 29th July to 12 August 2016.  In an attempt
to offer some new experiences for people who
habitually visit the country, this trip will focus solely on
the northern area with longer stop overs in the chosen centres.

Highlights will include:-
· A tour of the Snaefellsness Peninsula
· A visit to Flatey (weather dependant)
· Tours of the Northern Fjords and boat safari
· A visit to Husavik and whale watching trip
· Time exploring the volcanic features around Myvatn
· Return via Akuryeri, the Kjolar route and the Golden Circle

The estimated cost will be in the region of £2,200.  This will include:-
· Flights from Manchester or Heathrow
· Coach, driver and Icelandic guide
· All hotel accommodation
· Most meals
· Whale watching, boat safari, trip to Flatey, swimming pool visit in Myvatn.

Places are limited to 25 people so an expression of definite interest would be appreciated at this time.  Please email Hazel Clark on  Don’t delay as you may well be disappointed!!!
