Program Overview

 USF Campus Recreation and Outdoor Recreation are excited to announce our second adventure trip to Iceland in the summer of 2017! Students will get the chance to combine a once in a lifetime hiking expedition across the beautiful landscapes of Iceland with a cultural and educational immersion unlike any other. In partner with the Global Citizen Series, students will experience 13 days in Iceland with nothing but a backpack for their belongings, and any interested in study abroad experience will be able to apply learning outcomes and reflections towards future Global Citizen Scholarships.

The capital, Reykjavik, runs on geothermal power and offers a renowned nightlife scene as well as countless cultural experiences. Experience this true frontier first hand with USF Outdoor Recreation!
