      About this trip

      Through professional site visits and discussions, learn more about the current state of mental health services and policies in Iceland. Meet with medical and mental health practitioners from a variety of settings including local hospitals, schools and relevant medical societies. Learn about mental health policies, education and training as well as the establishment of ongoing communication and collaboration. Focus on the cultural beliefs and practices that affect the presentation and treatment of mental health problems; how professional and public opinion about mental health disorders have evolved; the role of psychoanalytic theory and tradition; and what local cultural beliefs and practices affect the presentation and treatment of mental health problems in this region. Explore some of the most majestic scenery in the world, including Gulfoss Waterfall, UNESCO World Heritage rated Thingvellir National Park, and a black sand beach with amazing basalt cliff formations. Enjoy a private concert and introduction to Icelandic folk music, storytelling and history from a local musician.


      Support local conservation by visiting the Háafell goat farm where Jóhanna Bergmann Þorvaldsdóttir has been instrumental in saving the Icelandic goat from extinction.  Although elusive and unpredictable, the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights may decide to make an appearance since you're visiting Iceland in late August.

      This trip, these travel companions, our amazing leaders made this journey another high point in my life. To walk in the steps of the giants of music brought new meaning to the scores I have performed over the decades. I will never stop singing the praises of Nanda Journeys to friends and family and anyone who asks.

      A bucket list trip for sure. This is my 4th trip with Nanda Journeys. I appreciate that the staff takes care of everything. Just need to show up with packed suitcase & passport. I enjoy the intimate experiences that Nanda creates with each trip such as meeting with members of a local village and learning about their daily lives. Seeing the Chimps & Gorillas are memories that will last a lifetime!

      This trip was a multicultural and linguistic look into the fields of speech pathology and audiology in post apartheid South Africa. This journey involved meeting with the South African Sp-Lg-Hg Assn, hospitals, universities, clinics, private practices, schools and after school programs. Other activities included animal photo safaris, dinners with speakers, museums, shopping opportunities, geographical sites, an evening of music, drumming and local food as well excellent opportunities to view penguins.

      I had a wonderful time on my trip. It was packed with professional meetings but also had time built in for a few other things. It was one of the trips on my 'live list' and I was so glad that I came. I met wonderful colleagues and their guests. It was a fantastic trip. The company was great. Both hosts, Kenny and Lynda were fun to be with and very personable. Thank you, Drs. Battle and Johnson, for being our leaders. Thank you, Nanda Journeys, for putting it all together.
      By Ruth Renee H for South Africa SLP & Audiology Journey- Dolores Battle and Kia Johnson on Jun 24, 2024
      Ruth, we are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your time in South Africa with Drs Battle and Johnson. Thank you for your kind words and for taking this journey with us. We had nothing but positive reviews from our colleagues in South Africa.
