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.
Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice, is a dramatic volcanic landscape forged and shaped by geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers and bordered by black-sand beaches. 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!
USF Students, Staff/Faculty: $1,750.00
Non-USF Participants: $2,000.00
Students will camp onsite in various parks in Iceland including Reykjavik, Landmannalaugar, Hraftinaskur, Alftavtn, Emstrur, and Slyppugil. Hostel accommodations will be available in Reykjavik on return to the city at the end of the trip.
