OAP Iceland Trekking Summer 2022

July 18 - 24

Has the Richmond summer heat got you down? Come cool off in Iceland. The OAP is heading to the land of fire and ice for our annual summer trip. Our trip starts in the stunning city of Reykjavík where we all have some time to take in some local culture. From there we will travel to central Iceland to begin the backpacking leg of our trip. We will be trekking along some of the world's most epic and beautiful trails with views of volcanic mountains, massive glaciers, and cascading waterfalls. Our evenings will be spent in camp eating delicious meals and possibly sitting in one of the several hot springs.

Passport required, so make sure yours is up to date. Airfare is not included. 

Curious? Attend an info session at the VCU Outing Rental Center on May 3 at 6 pm.
