You want to bring your students to Iceland, but lack the connections and local logistical know-how? We are here to help!
Understand Iceland specializes in study-abroad tours for college and university students in N-America who want to explore Iceland’s dynamic nature and history. We organize trips around Iceland, focusing primarily on topics ranging from geology, biology, sustainability and nature conservation to history, archaeology, and culture.
We create connections with academic departments and research institutes, allowing students to interact with local experts in various disciplines and study Iceland through visits, field excursions, courses and lectures. We explore the most amazing scenery in Iceland: stunning volcanoes, lava fields, black beaches, and glaciers.
Our programs are designed for groups who seek a different kind of experience and wish to explore Iceland as well as relating it to their studies.
Along with academic study programs, we offer various outdoor activities, depending upon the wishes of the group.
Make Iceland your classroom through site visits, lectures, field research, service learning and hands-on activities.
We are passionate about every tour and proud of our personalized service. The groups are always led by an Icelandic guide with first-aid certification and a safety plan is made for every tour.
