I traveled with Atlas Workshops last summer on their Global Innovators Scandinavia trip. We, in the truest sense, explored Sweden and Denmark, learning about Swede and Dane culture and their approach to public transportation.
I came in expecting a strictly academic endeavor, but got much more. I experienced something personal, wild, adventurous, radically different, and the greatest fun with the best of companions.
The Atlas guides are brilliant. Excellent (hands off) instruction and stellar company. You'll want to be friends long after the summer's end!
This experience was incredibly valuable and helped me grow as an individual. See you next summer!
What would you improve about this program?
Especially being among the oldest on the trip, I would have liked to manage my own money. Instead, more/less/different at a restaurant was not always an option because Atlas covers all meals as a part of the program cost.
I understand why they do it. It makes sense as a program policy to ensure everyone eats, but, on several occasions it was a bother the 17-18s on the trip.
Still- I weigh the complaint little to none. The trip approached perfect.
