Join fellow alumnae and friends on this five-day escape to the Land of Fire and Ice. Immerse yourself in the Iceland’s rich culture and Viking heritage beginning with two nights in the bustling capital city, Reykjavík, followed by two nights exploring the vast countryside.

Our Smith host and speaker for this program will be Dano Weisbord, Executive Director of Sustainability and Campus Planning at Smith College, who currently serves as the Administrative Director of the Center for Environment, Ecological Design and Sustainability (CEEDS). CEEDS fosters learning through connecting real-world problems to research, curriculum, internships, and campus life.

Iceland is a country of contradictions, where the Northern Lights prance through the dark winter skies, and the long summer days extend well into the stunningly bright evenings. From steamy hot springs to top-notch spas, spectacular scenery to fine regional cuisine, this unique land is the perfect place to relax, recharge, and explore. Enroll early while spaces remain!
