Here are reviews from people who have taken our adventures in Iceland:
“A delightful program exposing one to a different culture, other-worldly scenery (glaciers, lava fields, moss covered lava fields) while moderately challenging one physically.”
- David from Hampstead, MD
“Great program for those who want to spend a lot of time outdoors. Terrific scenery, and the evening lectures were interesting. We did see a bear and her cub, and also saw a lot of whales on the whale watch!”
— Marcia from Gridley, KS
