Come join us in the Land of Fire & Ice for a fun-filled, community-centered worldschool gathering Oct 5 – 13, 2022.
Our Iceland Excursion provides the opportunity to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, share your insights, instill new friendships, learn about the local area, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community.
Due to the nature of tourism in Iceland, our Iceland Excursion is offered in a different format than our previous pop-ups. In order to see more of the island, we’re planning 9 full days. Please join us for any and all that your budget allows…it’s completely acceptable to come a few days late or leave a few days earlier.
We’ve cherry-picked activities that highlight local nature, history, and culture… and we’ve found shared lodging for families who would like to stay in the same neighborhood or complex as the host family at ~$US100/night for a family of four.
Scheduled activities include the following:
*Mývatn Nature Baths
*Hverir Thermal Area
*Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River
*Laugarvatn Fontana Hot Springs
*Seljalandsfoss and Skógarfoss waterfalls
*Reynisfjara Beach (basalt columns)
*Gígjagjá Yoda Cave
*Northern Lights, National Parks, Hikes, Lakes, Craters, Steam Vents… so much to see!
Add-ons include: Bjórböðin Beer Spa, thermal bread-baking at Laugarvatn Fontana, Glacier Hike at · Sólheimajökulll Glacier, whale watching, ice cave tour (might be a little early in the season), museums, Icelandic horse rides, and more!
We’re on the move…you must secure all your own accommodations in these suggested areas. Join for as many days as you’re able. There’s no requirement to stay in the shared lodging, it’s provided as an option.
