Trek Description:

What could be better than starting your MBA experience in the most beautiful country on earth?! We will criss-cross Iceland seeing waterfalls, volcanos, hot springs, and glaciers. We’ll relax in the Sky Lagoon and (hopefully) catch the Northern Lights. This will be an active trip with at least some hiking each day. We will be on the move, spending four of our days in Reykjavik and five on road, traveling to see as much natural drama as possible before we head back to the good ol’ midwest. This is the trip for you if you love getting outside and challenging yourself a little, don’t mind some time in cars (we’ll have lots of road trip games on deck don’t worry), and appreciate a little silly fun in whatever dive (karaoke?) bars we can find. We know the costs are high for every trip this year, so we’re dedicated to making Iceland the best possible experience and creating an atmosphere that will set you up to start Ross with a set of brand new friends (bonding, good vibes, and as little tier-2 fun as possible).

Why should you join my trek?
Icleand is literally gorgeous and beautiful like did you see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty??!! I love water falls and hot springs this is my dream. Every other trip is about to sweat their little butts off in the heat of summer while we will be calm cool and collected. Plus we’re the most fun group of leaders you could have and we couldn’t be more excited to meet next year’s MBA1’s, answer all your burning questions, and help you kick of Ross with the best 9 days of your lives.

Why should you join my trek?
Okay, I’ll be honest with yall. Before planning this trip, did I know how to spell Reykjavik? Absolutely not. BUT I knew that Iceland is the most beautiful country in the world and our trip will be so much fun! If you want to see the beauties nature can offer while being with who Stephen Ross (probably) deems “the coolest girls ever,” then this is the trip for you! (This passage was ghost written by a Follies friend. Why? Becuase I am terribly over-involved and wrapped up in being The Bus president and running Dis-O for our outgoing MBA2’s. What does this mean for you??? I am increadibly plugged in, social, and can’t wait to get to know you! Let’s hike, explore, and maybe even rage together in Iceland!!!!)
