Alumni & Friends Travel Program

SAU Travel is back with trips for you!

In good company, the journey becomes extraordinary.

Our friendly, inclusive, experience-based tours are led by expert tour directors, feature local guides, and are accompanied by SAU President Dr. Trey Berry and Dr. Katherine Berry. 

We know you want to take well-orchestrated adventures so you can focus on what really matters: taking those adventures together.

Islands of New England: October 4-11, 2019

For bookings made after May 3, 2019 call for availability and rates.

Trip led by: Drs. Trey & Katherine Berry

Highlights: Providence, Newport, Boston, Cranberry Bog, Plimoth Plantation, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Lobster Dinner, Provincetown, Choices on Tour, Hyannis, Nantucket

New England’s miles of sandy beaches, majestic coasts, and rolling surf invite relaxation. The Islands of New England tour spends eight days exploring New England’s charms, from the cobblestone streets of Nantucket to a dry harvest cranberry bog. Step back in time at Plimoth Plantation to sample traditional recipes from that period, learn some Pilgrim etiquette and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast where you’ll learn to “eat like a Pilgrim.” In Provincetown, the choice is yours – set out on a whale watch cruise or embark on a scenic adventure through the iconic sand dunes of the Cape. Visit Boston and Providence, the Gilded Age mansions of Newport, the lively artist colony of Provincetown, and the beautiful islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Complete your New England experience as you indulge in a traditional seafood and lobster feast.

An island of dramatic contrasts, Iceland is a landscape forged by ice and fire. Its volcanic nature is reflected by steaming lava fields and hot pools, while massive glaciers continue to sculpt the mountains and valleys, leaving behind thundering waterfalls and plunging fjords. Travel the “Golden Circle” – an epicenter of natural scenic wonders. Stay overnight in a local fishing village and enjoy a picturesque cruise of the bay. Amazing experiences let you create your own adventure, whether it’s a soak in the Blue Lagoon, a whale watching cruise, lava cave hike, or simply admiring the natural wildlife on a stroll along the coastal lava fields. Discover the spectacular landscapes and incredible culture on this small island nation during this fascinating Icelandic journey.
