A Trip to Iceland to inspire climate action
During Global Family Travels’ nine-day journey in Iceland, we will observe how rising global temperatures have already begun to radically alter this country’s landscape including causing glaciers to recede. Scientist predict that 400 glaciers around the country are at risk of disappearing. Warming of the oceans around Iceland, meanwhile, has impacted the marine ecosystem and the abundance of certain fish. The decline of fish in turn, has impacted the sea bird and seal populations (which feed on fish). These are just a few of the very visible examples of the changes taking place.
With an expert guide at your side as you explore Iceland on this carbon neutral, family-friendly trip, you will participate in an exciting adventure and immersive climate change education that will alter your way of viewing the world and inspire you to spread the word about the need for climate action upon your return home.
