“These trips are amazing. They allow you to travel and experience a world beyond your own. Adventuring around the whole of Iceland was such an amazing experience. From glacier trekking to dry suit snorkeling, it’s never a dull moment. Even the car rides are full of good times and allow for reflection on your own life.” Charles, high school alumnus
