Join Sten and a CS Practitioner as part of an 18 person group of 20s/30s that explores the southern region of Iceland in a supportive and healing Christian Science Atmosphere.

For:  Christian Scientists in their 20s/30s and their spouses/friends who are willing to dive into deep Christian Science discussions, support each other and the group by being patient, flexible and willing to help prepare and clean up group meals. Group travel always takes more time than solo or small group travel, and it can be a lot of fun with an inclusive easy-going group.

Cost: Registration is $1525 USD with a $250 non-refundable deposit paid with a debit/credit card to secure your spot. Your spot will not be confirmed until Sten Palmer has been in touch with you. Full payment is due July 20, 2020. Cost includes all meals (vegetarian or fish/meat) from lunch on Sunday September 20 to lunch on Saturday September 26, accommodation, and activities outlined in the Tentative Itinerary below.

Participants who cancel between January 21 and Jun 20, 2020, will be refunded less a $750 cancellation fee (deposit plus $500). No refunds will be issued after June 20, 2020.

Additional Costs: If you have special dietary requirements beyond being a vegetarian, you’ll need to bring what you need with you. We’ll also be going to a discount supermarket mid-week for you to buy additional items. The food provided will be simple, as food is expensive in Iceland. If you’re a picky eater, bring foods you like. Also, activities on Friday, our free day, are not included.

20s/30s Subsidy: Thanks to our generous donors, $3000 of the costs of this trip have been subsidized, which benefits every participant.
