Southwestern Ireland Golf Trip - May 4-12, 2013
The scenery on this southwestern Ireland golf vacation will take your breath away. Green grass, blue sky and white waves all meet here, which makes this part of Ireland a golf course designer’s dream. This Irish golf vacation includes rounds at Lahinch, Killarney, Tralee, Ballybunion and Waterville, with more golf in store for those who join our post-tour extension.
Golfers’ traveling companions will enjoy sightseeing through Ireland on tours of the Cliffs of Moher, Ross Castle, the Ring of Kerry and more. Look for the Alternate Guided Sightseeing itinerary on each day of this tour.
Iceland: Reykjavik to the Glaciers – August 3-8, 2013
From the moment you arrive, you’ll inhale Iceland's refreshing air and tap into the island’s natural, restorative powers. A revitalizing soak in the Blue Lagoon will help you understand why Iceland's people are some of the happiest on Earth, while an included tour of the country’s South Coast showcases Iceland’s otherworldly beauty. An Iceland tour lets you leave your cares a world away.
*Rockford University has quite a few alumni in Iceland! The Alumni Office is in the process of contacting these alums in hopes of scheduling an alumni gathering during the trip. As plans become more finalized, the alumni office will let you know!
