CHILL OUT IN ICELAND - FULL

Dates: July 31st-August 10

Price: $450 for students, $600 for Rec Members

Pre-Trip Meeting: March 21 in the Recreation & Fitness Center Conference Room @ 5PM

This summer, Campus Recreation is taking our Adventure Trips international!  Come with us as we go backpacking on the Laugavegur trail in Iceland.  This hike was featured on National Geographic's Ultimate Adventure Bucket List. After completing the hike, you'll understand why.  

After flying to Iceland (airfare not included), we'll explore the capital city of Reykjavik for a few days.  Then it's off to Landmannalaugar to start the hike. We'll be backpacking through old lava fields and valleys, past volcanoes and hot springs.  All in all we'll hike about 45 miles over 6 days before returning to Reykjavik to fly home.  No prior backpacking experience is necessary, however we recommend that you are prepared for a challenge!

Price includes: bus transfers in Iceland from the airport to Reykjavik, and from Reykjavik to the trail and back, night time accommodations (2 nights camping in Reykjavik, 5 nights camping along the trail, 1 night in a hut alongside the trail, 1 night in a hostel in Reykjavik), entrance to Reykjavik's geothermal pools, food while hiking, and gear rentals (tents, stoves, pots, pans, backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad)

Does not include: airfare to Iceland, optional excursions and meals in Reykjavik.
