Our Boy Scout Troop ran a week-long high-adventure trip to Iceland in August. We had a fantastic time! It is an easy nonstop flight from Boston. The staff at Úlfljótsvatn Scout Centre was very helpful in planning our trip, and gave us great suggestions for activities and places to visit.

Accommodations at the camp were comfortable and the food outstanding. Much of the success of our trip was due to the support and advice from our new scouting friends at Úlfljótsvatn. There is so much to see and do in beautiful Iceland — we can’t wait to go back!
