Progressive and culturally diverse city located on 14 islands. Globally recognized for its innovation, beauty, thriving music scene, and Nordic cusine.

In the fall, we travel to the island of Gotland off the southeastern coast of Sweden and explore Viking history in a walled medieval village. In the spring, we travel north of the Arctic Circle for dog sledding, ice fishing, snow shoeing, and a tour of the world-famous Ice Hotel. And we begin every term with an overnight trip to an island in Stockholm’s stunning archipelago!
