The Friends trip to Iceland: “Icelandic Adventure”


May 28 – June 6, 2019


Double: $6,959 / person
Single: $7959 / person
Triple $6859 / person

What do you call the view from the top of the world? In Iceland, there’s a word for it: víðsýni, a panorama. Do we know how that’s pronounced? Not entirely. But you can find out for yourself by joining the Friends of Saint Francis on their upcoming Icelandic Adventure, beginning May 28.

With an itinerary that includes Reykjavik, Husavik, and Grundarfjordur, the 10-day trip is full of opportunities to experience both the natural beauty and cultural touchstones of Iceland in the spring. From the Golden Circle to the Diamond Circle; from Thingvellir National Park to Lake Myvatin; you’ll go whale watching and hiking. Tour caves, waterfalls and glaciers. Eat their fancy food.

For pricing and a full itinerary, more details regarding the trip may be found at But one thing is for sure, there will be plenty of panoramic views – víðsýni. And since Icelanders also use that word for open-mindedness and new experiences, there will be plenty of those too.

Broaden your horizons. Let’s go to Iceland.

The Friends of Saint Francis are hosting a travel show on Monday, June 11th at 6 pm in the Saint John of God Conference room to promote the upcoming Icelandic Adventure trip. All RSVPs need to be made to 1st Class Travel at .
