What did you enjoy most about the program?

  • “The fine quality of all the people on the trip. The very knowledgeable guides and directors.”
  • “We are really glad we went! Thank you St. Olaf. After years of living away from Minnesota and St. Olaf, we have only had quick weekend visits with Ole friends to reestablish the feeling of Ole camaraderie. We quickly regained it on this trip and have made wonderful new friends! Can’t wait to go on another St Olaf adventure!”
