This summer, I’m headed to Iceland with the legendary Sven Lindblad and his company Lindblad Expeditions from July 15 to 20. If you’re thinking, “What can I do to make this summer an epic one?” look no further.

I’m really excited about this trip. It’s my first time to this stunningly gorgeous country and we’ll be visiting in a unique way—two days in Reykjavik and three days aboard the 148-passenger National Geographic Explorer. This trip was inspired by our AFAR Experiences event series and is meant to immerse you in the culture and history of Iceland by introducing you to fun and interesting locals who have a story to tell. From art and music to politics and science, you’ll get a deeper look beneath the surface of Iceland.

Who’s coming with me?

If you’re interested check out the trip here, and join AFAR’s Facebook chat this Friday @ 3PM EST with Lindblad Expeditions to hear more about the trip’s highlights. We’re going to have some fun. If you or any of your friends have always wanted to go, now you have reason and a means to plan the trip. Looking forward to seeing you on board!
