We will take a cultural journey through history and explore the many civilizations that have ruled this beautiful Mediterranean island. Sicily’s soil and architecture reveal layer upon layer of intriguing history created by Arab, Greek, Roman, French and Spanish rulers, each of whom left their unique footprints. For example, Sicily is home to some of the best Greek architecture in the world, making it an archaeologist’s dream. Its natural beauty of sea, mountains, and beaches provides a perfect backdrop for our visits to museums, Greek and Roman theaters and temples, markets, medieval villages, and wineries.

Experience Iceland! - Land of Fire and Ice
March 28 – April 2, 2015
Unique, distinct, mysterious, legendary - Iceland remains a well-kept travel secret. Exploring Iceland’s glacier-scapes, steam chimneys and roaring waterfalls, it’s not difficult to imagine trolls and elves from Icelandic lore peeking out from hidden lava fields. Iceland’s raw natural beauty rates as one of the world’s truly unique wilderness environments. Combined with world class farm to table/sea to table cuisine, it’s an island nation waiting to be discovered by discerning travelers. The tour includes a visit to the Viking Museum and the National Museum of Iceland, an Icelandic horse farm tour, a thermal outdoor swimming center, a tour of a geothermal plant, and half-day Rykjavik city tour. Also included are a visit to the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Gullfoss Waterfall, and the famous geyser geothermal area. Optional tours will allow you to take an Aurora Borealis Night Adventure, enjoy the Blue Lagoon Thermal Spa, climb a glacier, or ride a famous Icelandic horse.
The land price is $1799 double occupancy and the airfare from JFK is estimated to be $700. You can meet us in Reykavik or book air with Edventures.

Jane Austen Tour Spring 2015
April 25 - May 4, 2015
In keeping with Edventure’s mission of ‘Adventure Travel That Educates,” the trip will be led by Dr. David Shapard, a Jane Austen scholar. David is the author of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice as well as annotated versions of Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Emma. He has given numerous talks about Jane Austen to Austen societies and other groups and recently completed a visit to England to study gardens, estates, and other sites on the tour. Travelers will benefit from his vast knowledge of the areas we will visit as well as his enthusiasm and expertise in all things Jane.
Our visit will take travelers to the places where Jane lived or traveled, including ones that formed the setting of some of her stories, and to sites that reveal the world inhabited by her characters. Old-fashioned villages, ancient churches and cathedrals, picturesque country walks, spectacular sea sides, elegant Georgian town buildings, magnificent country houses, and beautiful landscaped grounds and gardens will all become living classrooms as we explore the sources she drew upon to create her beloved and timeless novels.
