Iceland Summer 2016 Trip

July 17- July 29 2016


ICELAND,,,,,,, Not just a destination, it's an adventure in a stunning scenery!!!!



A small volcanic island located between the Greenland Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean in the Artic. Iceland is about the size of Kentucky with average temperatures in July ranging from 51 degrees - 76 degrees.

The Gators will fly into the capital, Reykjavik and have a phenomenal adventure exploring this island from July 17 - 29, 2016. Approximately four-fifths of the country is unpopulated and uninhabitable. Glaciers cover more of the land in Iceland than in all of Europe.


In addition to glaciers, the island has lakes, mountains, a lava desert, lush green areas, and natural hot springs, making Iceland a spectacle of nature. If this trip is on your bucket list do not miss the opportunity to sign up for this trip.

For more information and full itinerary of this adventure please contact Ann West at or 561-840-8449 OR Deb Haselmire (VP Special Activities).

Saunas, heated pools and massages are all available to visitors, who can also reap the health benefits of the mineral-rich waters.  The man-made lagoon makes use of the run-off from the Bjarnarflag geothermal borehole nearby and is full of natural silicates and volcanic micro-organisms renowned for their restorative and relaxant properties  Bar service is available without leaving the water.

During your visit to Iceland’s top tourist attraction, you will have the opportunity to indulge yourself in the unique experience of bathing in a shallow lagoon amid a jet-black lava field and smearing white silica mud all over yourself.
