A wonderful opportunity for your teens and young adults! We are so proud to announce the plans for a trip to Iceland next summer.


Due to the enormous efforts of innovator Gudjon Sigurdsson and his supportive family and employer Reykavik Energy, Gudjon, HLC and our sponsors will bring 25 (total students and chaperones) to Reykjavik, Iceland for five days and have the opportunity to explore Iceland, learn about the Icelandic culture and landscape, investigate geothermal energy and to meet and enjoy new  ALS families and children living there.


  • To explore Reykjavik and to learn about their cultures and traditions.

  • To meet the ALS families of Reykjavik and to spend time with them.

  • To have fun!

  • To unite teens and young adults from our two countries and to gently discuss ALS and its effects on students.
