We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Iceland Expedition

Volcanoes, hot springs, and waterfalls!

Iceland: It’s Out of This World!

In the heart of Iceland’s Highlands, you’ll warm up your legs on beautiful day hikes past bubbling hot springs, ancient volcanic craters, and breathtaking peaks. A backcountry hike is next: For six days, you’ll hike past colorful rolling hills, steaming geothermal vents, and snowy peaks. After you leave the backcountry, you’ll explore the natural wonders of the Golden Circle Route on the journey back to Reykjavik. At trip end, you’ll team up with professional guides for a full day of rafting in the Gullfoss Canyon.

"My favorite parts were the hikes and just talking with my group. I've never made the types of connections, or bonded with others so quickly, in any other setting. The small groups make the Overland experience what it is! "

"Stuart grew so much from this program. Despite fact that it was only two weeks, it seemed like he matured years. His coaches and teachers have commented on this as well. So many life lessons he learned thanks to all of you! "
