Join us this summer to find out why Iceland has quickly climbed to the top of every traveller's list! Discover hip cities and breathtaking scenery paired with the perfect amount of adrenaline-pumping activities as you journey off the beaten path on this adventure of a lifetime!
Breathtaking waterfalls, immense glaciers, spectacular volcanoes, and some of the richest wildlife on the planet…It’s no wonder that Iceland is one of the world’s coolest teen travel destinations! This remote European country is just waiting for you to discover its hidden treasures. We’ll begin with a tour of the hip city of Reykjavik, home to funky street art, artisan boutiques, and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. From there we’ll road-trip around the entire country following the Ring Road, making stops along the way to soak in one of the world’s most untouched countries. You’ll have the chance to snorkel in the fissure where the European and American tectonic plates meet, hear the roar of waterfalls as you stand behind the cascading water, and hang out with puffins as they roost on the cliffs! Go for a soak in not just one, but several natural hot springs, including the famous Blue Lagoon. Hike in the amazing Dimmuborgir Lava Forest, and even ride the majestic Icelandic horses. Cross fjords, kayak through a beautiful harbor to a shipwreck, and of course go on a whale watch! This trip is ideal for high school students who love nature, off-the-beaten-path travel destinations, and adrenaline-inducing adventure activities.
