Professor of Geology and Walter Schober Professor of Environmental Studies Marcia Bjørnerud invites you to explore Scandinavian landscapes, history and culture on a very special 14-day Björklunden trip to Iceland, Norway and Sweden, from August 22 to September 5, 2013.
Q: What do the words geyser, maelstrom, smorgasbord and ombudsman have in common with Björklunden?
A: They all come from Scandinavian languages and provide a glimpse of the worldview that is distinctive to the Nordic countries—an intimacy with nature, a tradition of good hospitality and a strong sense of egalitarianism and fairness.
