Katla Geopark is Iceland´s first geopark and it opens up a natural wonderland to the visitor. A top priority of the park is to protect the natural environment, promote local sustainable development, introduce local culture and place a strong emphasis on nature tourism.
Katla Geopark is certainly one of the most dynamic, diverse and geologically exciting regions of the world. There one can find volcanos, newly formed lava, glaciers and glacial phenomena, rivers, outwash plains, black sea shore and much more.
All this makes Katla Geopark an excellent classroom.
