Iceland Trip 2:
Dave Oakes, the Center for Ecological Living and Learning (CELL)
We’ve partnered with Dave to bring you two opportunities to travel and learn about Iceland. What to know about Iceland?
It is one of the most eco-friendly countries in the world. Iceland was the last place on Earth to be settled by humans (Vikings). It has a 99% renewable energy supply. Many Icelanders believe in elves and trolls - adding to the magic and wonder of this mystical country and culture. You can swim outdoors in hot springs all year round; something we will experience. About 11% of Iceland is covered in glaciers, including the 3rd largest glacier in the world. Iceland has over 600 hot springs and volcanoes.
This trip is limited to 12 participants in order to allow sufficient personal attention from the leaders. Costs DO include all in-country food, lodging, travel, and activity fees.
Costs DO NOT include round trip airfare (approximately $450 - $600 as of 2021 prices). A $500 deposit is due upon registration to reserve your spot. Final payment will be due in May. Full details and itineraries are available on our website.

Join us for a six day adventure exploring Iceland’s alluring landscapes, renewable energy and sustainable practices, and learn what you can do to become a part of the solution to the challenges we face. On this trip we’ll explore Reykjavik, Iceland’s beautiful capital city, and taste some of its delicious cuisine. We’ll learn about Iceland’s Viking history, and the culture, language and geography that has shaped who Icelanders are today. You’ll get to know Hordur and Kristin, an Icelandic farm couple and friends of CELL, and partake of a traditional Icelandic meal. And at the completion of the program, you’ll develop an action plan for engaging sustainable practices in your own life back home.
