About Us

We started Adventure Geology Tours to share our love of geology and travel with you. When you choose Adventure Geology Tours, we take you to all the famous “selfie spots” that you’ve seen on social media, but unlike your friends who visited, you will walk away with a deeper appreciation of nature through the geologically-focused lectures and daily interpretations.

Additionally, our tours offer many more active experiences than the big-box competitors. Our locations can take you to volcanoes, hot springs, fumaroles, waterfalls, beaches, rain forests, and more. Plus, as an added bonus, the charismatic company owners are a heck of a lot of fun! “Active exploration with enthusiastic geologists” is our company mantra. Consider joining our trips as a solo-traveler, couple, family, or group and let’s learn some geology!

“AMAZING PROGRAM! I have a background in geology, and she had enough info for people with some knowledge and complete novices alike. Well done.”
-Smithsonian Associates Short-Course Participant

These reviews are from our flagship Iceland Geology Tours. Come with us and leave us a review for Cuba Geology Tours!

It was their love for volcanoes that motivated Dr. Tamie Jovanelly, a geologist, professor, international researcher, and author, along with her husband, Joe Cook, an adventurist, to build a trip that focused on geological landscapes that are inescapable, breath taking, and even more fascinating when their origin is explained.

Bring your curiosity, sense of adventure, and eagerness to learn.

Travel with a Researcher

What makes our tours so unique? They are organized and led by Dr. Tamie Jovanelly who has spent years studying hydrology, plate tectonics, volcanics, and more. She has taken students and adults on geology focused trips for over a decade.
Moreover, Dr. Jovanelly has used her extensive knowledge to write about the hydrology of Costa Rica and publish an award-winning and best-selling book about advanced geological concepts about Iceland, with more books to come!
