Watch our movie!

On any ICEE program, you will have the time of your life.  Our small group style of travel means that you’ll experience our destinations in an authentic way by traveling, eating, and sleeping like a local.  This movie was created by our students in order to give you a glimpse into what you’ll experience on our tours...

Explore the World with the International Centre for Exploration & Education!


If the travelers of one hundred years ago could see the places students like you are going today with ICEE, they would likely be amazed. The world was an entirely different place: mankind had only just developed winged aircraft, people traveled by ocean liner when going abroad, the average life expectancy in the U.S. was only 51.5 years, and zeppelins were viewed as the future of air travel. But as any traveler in any age would tell you, discovering the unknown can change your life.

At ICEE, we offer you the opportunity to enhance your academic major within an international context, make new friends, and build an international network of contacts. While in our programs, your active engagement alongside other motivated students from carefully selected U.S. and international institutions of higher learning will enable you to acquire valuable skills that will serve you in your academic and career pursuits for the rest of your life. You will broaden your horizons through immersion in the local communities you visit and through carefully selected experiential activities.

During you program with ICEE, you will challenge your own cultural norms and develop your own values and identity through new experiences, discussions, and friends. ICEE offers you the opportunity to build your cross-cultural competencies, to gain real-world knowledge, and to become more flexible in order to live, work, and succeed in an increasingly globalized world.

Through a combination of experiential activities, interaction with your fellow travelers, and exploration on your own during provided free time, you will be able to have your own unique international experience. And throughout your international experience, ICEE faculty are there to guide, to travel with you, to assist you throughout your study abroad experience, and to be an ongoing resource for you in the future.

This website is packed with inspiring study tours which include activities from swimming with a wild pod of dolphins in the ocean off New Zealand to enjoying traditional music in an Irish pub to hunting for truffles in the Italian countryside. Each of our tours include something for every student and academic major.

We invite you, a member of the next great generation of explorers, to follow in the footsteps of the explorers who have gone before you...

The world is an incredible place…come discover it with us!

Warm Regards,

Our Destinations

For all of our tours, space is limited.  For example, our Australia tours are strictly limited to 15 students because we simply can’t offer the activities that will define your experience with a larger group.
