Join us this summer as we head to the northern corners of the world to discover the best that Iceland and Scandinavia have to offer on this ultimate Nordic teen adventure. We will begin this truly unique tour exploring impressive Norwegian fjords and glaciers, enjoying charming towns in Sweden, discovering why Denmark is considered the happiest country in the world, and checking out the world’s most live-able city in Finland.
Then it’s onward to Iceland! Breathtaking waterfalls, immense glaciers, spectacular volcanoes, and some of the richest wildlife on the planet have made this remote European country one of the world’s top destinations. We’ll begin in 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. 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 whale watching!
This program highlights the awe-inspiring nature and stunning cities of both Scandinavia and Iceland and is ideal for anyone who loves nature, off-the-beaten-path travel destinations, and adrenaline-inducing adventure activities mixed with just the right amount of cultural immersion.
