      About this trip

      Join us in Iceland over the summer solstice on our Iceland Mindfulness & Multi-Sport Tour for an energizing and restorative experience under the Midnight Sun.

      Our daily rituals will align with a new theme each day. During this tour, participants will embrace Iceland energy for rejuvenation, experience empowering outdoor adventures, and have time set aside for guided rest and self-reflection. 


      Bright Start!

      Begin your days with sun salutations and connect with the super volcano beneath your toes. Yoga’s purposeful movements will get your blood flowing, stimulate the mind-body connection, and set a positive tone for the day ahead.


      Unique Outdoor Adventures

      Iceland is a nature-lover’s playground, especially in the summertime. Fun adventures on this tour include horseback riding, sea kayaking, easy day hikes, and snorkeling between the continental plates! Each unique activity is designed for the beginner, so any healthy person can explore like a viking on this tour. 


      Relax

      Whether it is guided journaling, deep breathing exercises, or simply soaking in a geothermal spa, participants will have time set aside for relaxing moments of mindfulness. In Iceland, it is easy to disconnect from the world, and to connect with yourself in the present, the only moment that really matters. 


      Iceland is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and amid a backdrop of mountains, glacier-swept valleys, powerful cascading waterfalls, and black sand beaches is the perfect place to let nature inspire your sense of wonder and to connect with yourself and other like-minded women on our Iceland Summer Solstice Mindfulness & Multi-Sport Tour.

      This was an amazing, bucket-list, trip-of-a-lifetime type of trip! The local guide is the absolute best and makes sure you experience the best that Uganda has to offer. The wildlife viewing and the cultural experiences are second to none. You will be planning your return trip before you even finish this one! As always, the trip leader and the rest of the GreenEdventures crew also do a great job and make sure every detail has been planned and taken care of. I can’t recommend this trip or GE enough.

      The Green Edventures Roatan trip was absolutely 100% one of my favorite trips I have ever experienced. The accommodations were perfect. Every bungalow had its own deck jutting out into the crystal clear sea. The wildlife interactions on this trip were absolutely phenomenal sea turtles, sloths, dolphins. Did I mention the SLOTHS?! Snorkeling the Mesoamerican Barrier reef was an experience I will never forget. The Anthony’s Key staff and our phenomenal trip leader Kelly bent over backwards for us daily, which is no easy task! You could really tell everyone involved loves their job and was truly happy to help. I appreciated the educational aspect, learning about the reef and fish and our impact as humans on both. The capstone activity was zip lining which was an absolute blast and the views were breathtaking. I wish I could go on this trip over and over again!

      The trip to Roatan was wonderful. Our trip leader ,Kelly, was very accommodating, , kind and so helpful. The accommodations and employees at Anthony's Key Resort were amazing. The snorkeling was great ! I was not in love with snorkeling before, but this trip changed my mind... warm water, beautiful fish and reefs. Our snorkel guide,Jennifer, shared her knowledge on fish, reefs, and snorkeling. I would highly recommend this trip !!

      Overall I think it was a good trip. The accommodations, food, and weather were perfect. The local people were very friendly and helpful. The snorkeling activities were enjoyable, but you could see the reefs were suffering from some degradation. The tour of the island was interesting but very long - 5 1/2 hours in the van was too much. Swimming with the dolphins was the highlight of the trip for me. Bugs (noseeums) were bothersome. Our trip leader did a good job of managing 16 people. She was kind but sometimes overwhelmed which made her unable to accept suggstions about little changes that people thought would make things better.

      Roatan was another fabulous trip! Resort staff went out of their way to give us the best experience ever. Kelly was our trip leader extraordinaire. Something fun for everyone. Green Edventures is just my kind of touring group. I’ve gone on at least a dozen trips with them and never had a complaint about anything. Terrific activities, learning opportunities, wonderful travel destinations, always great food and excellent staff. The dollar to fun ratio is always better than going with anyone else and that’s why I keep going back to them.

      I went on an amazing trip with Tara to Baja, Mexico in 2020. This was a dream trip for me being a wildlife lover. It was incredible to be able to swim with whale sharks and sea lions and get up close with gray whales. Camping on the beach was amazing. We had a great group of women and everyone vibed well and all of the tour guides including Tara, Alex and Chabello were so fun, friendly and helpful every step of the way. The food was great at the campsite and at the restaurants we got to try. When our trip plans initially got derailed waiting on a negative Covid test and we had to get a different flight, Tara did everything in her power to accommodate us and make sure we got to enjoy every part of the trip, including setting us up with another whale shark swimming tour after we had missed the initial one with the group, and she spent time waiting for us to finish before leaving for the airport. I definitely recommend Green Edventures, especially the Baja Mexico trip!

      I just returned from the Wisconsin Women's Tour and couldn't have asked for a better trip! For me, the amount and type of activity were perfect. Who know there was so much to discover practically in my own backyard?
