  1. dear caver

    We are two french cavers traveling in Iceland this summer.
    The main object of our travel is to discover the nature of Iceland but we will be very pleased to meet icelandic cavers. Let me introduce myself. I’m a french researcher in the field of environment and agriculture. I practice also caving and try to develop a personnal scientific activity in caving. As member of a caving club located in the french Alps I practice mainly in limestone and karst caves. But I had been also member of two caving expeditions in Lanzarote (a Canary Island, Spain). Lanzarote is a volcanic Island, we discovered and explorated several lava tubes with the support of the french speleological federation and a special agreement of the national park of Timanfaya where these lava tubes are located. The main purpose of our expeditions was to discover, to map and to study the geomorphological strucutures of these very recent tubes (please find the report of one of these expedition, unfortunately in french). I have also a passion for the famous book of the french writer Jules Verne “voyage au centre de la terre” (journey to the center of the earth) and I plan to visit Snaefellsjokull. According to such center of interests we will be very pleased to exchange with some icelandic cavers and if possible to discuss lava tubes and concretions in the heart of one icelandic lava tube? Concretely we will be near Reykjavik and Snaefellsjokull between the 14th and the 19th of August. Do you think that it will be possible to arrange such exchange? Thanks in advance
    Sincerely yours
