    Lets Keep Florida Beautiful

    TAG believes in "leave no trace" ethic... Our continued right to visit and camp on Tampa Bay's Islands depends on how well we can learn to manage an ever increasing population of people on the bay's islands. The leave "no trace ethic" means that we are required to remove absolutely any trace of our camp - including food, refuse and anything that came with us on our yaks. Please bring trash bags so we can leave the Island as pristine as we found it.

    This was my first hostel experience and it was SO much better than I expected. During my stay in Reykjavik I also stayed at 1 hotel and 1 other hostel (which I won't name) and Loft Hostel blew it out of the water. The rooms were clean, staff was so incredibly friendly and willing to help... I forget their names but shout out to the girl with the dark hair and straight cut bangs. Very pleasant and accommodating.

    “Best Hostel in Reykjavik!”
    5 of 5 stars - Reviewed on 4 Aug 2014

    I stayed at the Loft Hostel from 18th of August 2014 until 22nd of August 2014 and I can say that my overall stay was pleasant. The best thing about the Loft Hostel is that it is indeed in the centre of Reykjavik and everything is close by /walking distance. Busstation, bars, restaurants, shops, everything! Loft Hostel is very clean, every room has a separate big clean shower and toilet and the breakfast for me was good. They have excellent service at the reception and go beyond their way to help you with everything you need in any kind of way.

    Perfect location: Downtown, on Reykjavík's main shopping street, and within walking distance from most of Reykjavík's monuments and attractions, pubs, and restaurants.

    What to Pack


    The weather in Iceland in June is still damp, cool, and windy. Please pack for windy 60 degree Florida-like weather in December. In June Icelandic night time temps are in the 40's, and cool daytime temps may reach into the 60's. 

    Dressing in layers is the key. Pack pants, both short- and long-sleeved shirts, a light jacket and a sweater. You also will need rain gear that covers both your upper and lower body. Summer is not Iceland's rainiest season but still brings significant precipitation, and an umbrella will not cut it in Iceland's winds. A sturdy pair of broken-in hiking boots is essential for outdoor adventures along Iceland's rocky, rough terrain.

    The following items are strongly suggested. They are a must for your safety and comfort. When packing think about what will keep you warm in cool windy environments. Try to avoid jeans for hikes or during the different tours. Jeans get wet and keep you cold. You can find non-denim non-jean moisture-wicking clothes at most sports stores.

    Iceland's water is heavy in minerals, so throw in extra conditioner and styling gel to keep your hairstyle adjusted. 

    To save money bring some non-perishable snacks to save you from shopping for them in Iceland, where their prices are heavily taxed and inflated.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    What's a Hostel and can I have my own room?

    Lodging in Iceland is very expensive, which is why we have chosen to stay in a hostel, plus hostels are so much fun, you meet locals and have a better overall experience.
    A hostel is a "shared" hotel of sorts, everyone hands out in common areas much like a regular hotel, the only difference is the rooms. Each room will have 4 beds, two bunk beds. Men and women will be split up into separate rooms except one room where it may be mixed men and women.

    Yes, you can reserve your own room. A single room is available for an additional $1550.00 per person. Contact TAG if you are interested in a single room. Rooms are subject to availability, and less are available the closer we are to the departure date.

     

    What flights should I book? How much will flights cost?
    Do not book flights until this event has met its minimum required registration. You will receive an email when its ok to book flights, with flight options. 

    There are two main flights from JFK in New York to Keflavík (Keflavík International Airport) Reykjavik, Iceland. One flight departs JFK at 2:10PM and lands in Iceland at 11:40pm. The other flight departs JFK at 8:40PM and arrives in Iceland at 6:15AM

    Other flights to Iceland depart from Canada.

    Average prices of flights from Tampa, FL to Iceland are $950-$1050.

    Try using http://www.skyscanner.com to locate flights.

    What is Icelandic food like?
    For centuries, hunting, fishing and foraging sustained Iceland. The island, just south of the Arctic Circle, is so remote, and its growing season so short, that people would take whatever they could from the land and the sea, surviving on puffin jerky and fermented shark. Today, Iceland's geographic isolation plus strict government environmental regulations helps it produce some of the purest foods on the planet. Grass-fed cows with a lineage that goes back to the Norwegian herds brought by the Vikings in 874 AD make milk that's high in beta carotene, creating exceptional butter and cheese as well as the yogurt-like skyr. Family farms sell tender meat from lambs that have grazed in the mountains all summer on moss, scrub and wildflowers. Fish farmers raise arctic char without chemicals or antibiotics in eco-friendly saltwater tanks.

    What will the weather be like in June?
    Cool with daily high's of 59 degrees and daily lows of 40 degrees. Daylight lasts 21 hours each day with just 3 hours of twilight. Expect a 40% chance of rain each day with most days being cloudy or partly cloudy.


    Should I bring cash?
    Yes, please bring some cash with you so you can purchase drinks at the bar. Major credit cards are accepted at all restaurants, bars, and shops. Money can be exchanged in any major airport. Iceland uses the Icelandic Króna, 123 Krona to every 1 U.S. dollar. 

    Is there a bar on the property?
    Yes, you will have access to the bar within The Loft and amazing nearby pubs within a short walk.

    Will it rain when I am in Iceland?
    There is a 40 -50% chance it will rain while you are in Iceland during your your stay on the island. Please remember to bring a good quality rain coat and rain pants, not a poncho which will fall apart.

    Will my cell phone work, will I have internet access?
    Overall, we recommend trying to stay unconnected, but you may have coverage within the city if your phone operates on the GSM network. To avoid costly bills, make sure you disable all roaming before you leave the U.S. Iceland has very advanced technology and has great cellular networks. Please contact your cellular provider to see if you can make international calls in Iceland.

    Free WiFi will be available 24/7 within the Loft, we suggests you use the free WiFi to make calls over Google, Skype, or Facebook to avoid costly international charges or roaming.


    Will I need a special Visa to get into Iceland?
    Since your trip to Iceland is under 90 days, no visa is required for passport holders in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries.

    Your passport will only be accepted if it expires 90 days or more from the day of arrival in Iceland. Passports must not expire within 90 days of visiting Iceland.

    What's not included in the cost?
    Costs of obtaining passports, visas, or tourist cards; excess baggage fees; personal expenses such as room service, beverages, and laundry; personal communications charges; international airfare; sightseeing or meals not specified in the itinerary; personal insurance coverage, gratuities.

    A hostel is a "shared" hotel of sorts, everyone hangs out in common areas much like a regular hotel, the only difference is the rooms. Each room will have 8 beds, four bunk beds. Men and women may be in separate rooms except one room where it may be mixed men and women.

    Yes, you can reserve your own room. A single room is available for an additional $1550.00 per person, expensive isn't it,  we told you its pricey. Contact TAG if you are interested in a single room. Rooms are subject to availability, and less are available the closer we are to the departure date.

     

    What flights should I book? How much will flights cost?
    Do not book flights until this event has met its minimum required registration. You will receive an email when its OK to book flights.

    Flight Options:

    There are two main flights from Boston and JFK in New York to Keflavík (Keflavík International Airport) Reykjavik, Iceland. One flight departs JFK at 2:10PM and lands in Iceland at 11:40pm. The other flight departs JFK at 8:40PM and arrives in Iceland at 6:15AM

    Other flights to Iceland depart from Canada.

    Average prices of flights from Tampa, FL to Iceland are $950.

    What is Icelandic food like?
    For centuries, hunting, fishing and foraging sustained Iceland. The island, just south of the Arctic Circle, is so remote, and its growing season so short, that people would take whatever they could from the land and the sea, surviving on puffin jerky and fermented shark. Today, Iceland's geographic isolation plus strict government environmental regulations helps it produce some of the purest foods on the planet. Grass-fed cows with a lineage that goes back to the Norwegian herds brought by the Vikings in 874 AD make milk that's high in beta carotene, creating exceptional butter and cheese as well as the yogurt-like skyr. Family farms sell tender meat from lambs that have grazed in the mountains all summer on moss, scrub and wildflowers. Fish farmers raise arctic char without chemicals or antibiotics in eco-friendly saltwater tanks. Overall there is just about every type of food in some way or another; veggies, meats, seafood, and fruits.

    What will the weather be like in June?
    Cool with daily high's of 59 degrees and daily lows of 40 degrees. Daylight lasts 21 hours each day with just 3 hours of twilight. Expect a 40% chance of rain each day with most days being cloudy or partly cloudy. Warm clothes are a must!


    Should I bring cash?
    Yes, please bring some cash with you so you can purchase drinks at the bar, or tips guides. Major credit cards are accepted at all restaurants, bars, and shops. Money can be exchanged in any major airport. Iceland uses the Icelandic Króna, 123 Krona to every 1 U.S. dollar as of November 2014. Exchange rates may change before June 2015.

    Is there a bar on the property?
    Yes, you will have access to the bar within The Loft and amazing nearby pubs within a short walk.

    Will it rain when I am in Iceland?
    There is a 40 - 50% chance it will rain while you are in Iceland during your your stay on the island. Please remember to bring warm clothes and a good quality rain coat and rain pants, not a poncho which will quickly fall apart.

    Will my cell phone work, will I have internet access?
    Overall, we recommend trying to stay unconnected, but you may have coverage within the city if your phone operates on the GSM network and has interational roaming. To avoid costly bills, Please disable all cellular and roaming and data roaming before you leave the U.S. Iceland has very advanced technology and has great cellular networks. Please contact your cellular provider to see if you can make international calls in Iceland.

    Free WiFi will be available 24/7 within the Loft, we suggests you use the free WiFi to make calls over Google, Skype, or Facebook to avoid costly international charges or roaming fees by your carrier.


    Will I need a special Visa to get into Iceland?
    Since your trip to Iceland is under 90 days, no visa is required for passport holders in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and many other countries.

    Your passport will only be accepted if it expires 90 days or more from the day of arrival in Iceland. Your passports must not expire within 90 days of visiting Iceland.

    What's not included in the cost?
    Costs of obtaining passports, visas, or tourist cards; excess baggage fees; personal expenses such as room service, beverages, and laundry; personal communications charges; international airfare; sightseeing or meals not specified in the itinerary; personal insurance coverage, gratuities.

    About the White Water Rafting

      The Chattooga Wild & Scenic River begins at the base of Whitesides Mountain in North Carolina and flows in a southwesterly direction to form the border between South Carolina and Georgia.  One of the wildest and most beautiful whitewater rivers in the country, the Chattooga was the first river in the Southeast to be designated "Wild and Scenic" in 1974 by Congress and was used as a location for the movie Deliverance. Yeah, don't stop paddling if you hear banjos. The Sumter and Chattahoochee National Forests surround you while on this wilderness adventure river.

    Section IV of the Chattooga, the section that you will raft for 7 hours, covers the steepest section of river currently being run on a commercial basis in the Southeast.  In a 1/4 mile gorge, the river drops more than 75 feet through the famed Five Falls: Entrance, Corkscrew, Crack-In-the-Rock, Jawbone, and Sock-Em Dog. Section IV can be the ultimate challenge for beginner and experienced whitewater paddlers, but don't worry there is a skilled guide in each raft, and safety is the number one priority.
               

            

    About the High Canopy Zip Lining


      More than just a zipline, Chattooga Ridge Canopy tour takes you through multiple ecosystems and into grand old white oak and maple treetops. Take flight above the forest floor blanketed with mountain laurel, rhododendron, flam azalea, and other native plants. While in flight, watch for our hawks, deer, and other wildlife while rangers share the cultural history of the Long Creek Academy and the Chattooga River region.


    Each participant is provided with the equipment to safely navigate the course, including full body harnesses, trolley, helmets, gloves, and tether lines. The tours also provide two Association Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) trained Canopy Rangers for each group to give insight on the wildlife and to guide you safely down the zip lines.


    This zipline canopy experience gives you over 1/2 mile of air time with:
    • Ground school to learn how to safely zip line and practice these safety techniques on a practice zip with instructors.
    • A hoist up to our Triceratops platform to provide an exhilarating start to the canopy tour
    • Four free-swinging bridges
    • Ten zip lines between trees and elevated platforms
    • Four zips across the beautiful Academy Lake
    • Over nine scenic and historic acres of flying area with the Wildwater Chattooga property and Academy Lake.
      On the zipline day we advice TAG members to wear t-shirts (not tank tops) and pants in order to have a more comfortable flight. Harness seats will wrap around your upper thigh, shoulders, and waist, so collared shirts and long pants will be more comfortable. Closed toed shoes are required for those that wish to enjoy the zipline experience. Long hair must be tied back and secured. TAG will be there to take lots of fun-filled adventure canopy photos, available to you for free after the trip.


      

    About the Yurts



      After a full day of fun and adventure, rest for the next day in yurts that bridge between past and future, first seen in the 12th centuries. To live in a yurt is to reconnect with our natural origins, and rekindle our potential for living simply. The smooth round walls and soft light create an easy elegance. The tall ceilings and artfully exposed rafters provide a unique airy living space with unlimited possibilities.

     The group Yurts are a convenient place for you to stay when you visit the Chattooga during this adventure. Nestled on the edge of the woods, overlooking Academy Lake and steps away from the  Adventure Center, its the perfect location for TAG members to call home for four days. The yurts have bunk beds with mattresses for sleeping, small tables & benches, ceiling fan, large outside decks with picnic tables, power, lights, and small heaters. No sheets, pillows, blankets or towels are provided so make sure you bring your sleeping bag, pillow, and blankets.

      The commons building has 6 individual bathrooms with private showers, toilet & sink as well as 2 additional toilets & sinks. The bathrooms and showers are cleaned daily! The multi-purpose building will be the area which meals are cooked in and includes a full indoor kitchen that includes a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cooking utensils, pots & pans, and silverware. 

      You will enjoy meals and relaxation in a screened in dining room, an outside grill for BBQ meals, and fire pit with seating area area for smores and campfires each night.

     After breakfast we will walk up to the main building to sign a waiver, pick out a wetsuit, and splash top. West suits are marked by size, and a locker room is located nearby for changing and storage of clothes. After we pick out a wetsuit and splash top, we will meet the main raft guide in front of the building for a fun briefing before we board the shuttle to the river.

     After a short drive in a short bus, yes you finally get to ride the short bus, we will arrive at the river. A final safety brief and then we will launch and head toward our first rapids.

     We will break half way down the river for a large waterfall, swimming if you feel up to it, and a hearty lunch buffet on the river bank. After lunch enjoy another half day of rafting down the river into Lake Tugaloo, where a motor boat will tow us back a boat ramp where the fun-bus is waiting to shuttle us back to the adventure center.. Feel free to shower and change into warm clothes, dinner will be prepared and served in the dining area or outside under the pavilion after you return from rafting. After dinner enjoy a night hike around the lake or join others around the bonfire for smores.

     

    Day 3 - Saturday, 26 Sep - Canopy Tour and Zip Line Adventure

     Wake up and enjoy a hot breakfast, coffee and tea. After being fueled up with breakfast the first group of 10 people will ride to the nearby zip line adventure at 9:00AM area to sign waivers and meet the guides. The second group of 10 will be shuttled over at 10:00AM to get suited up in your canopy gear. Personalized instruction, specialized gear and your Canopy Rangers will take you on an unforgettable experience on 10 ziplines and seven bridges through an Appalachian forest and over a creek and lake.

     Plan on the experience lasting over 3 hours. In warm weather; shorts, T-shirt, tennis shoes or other closed-toed footwear, allergy medications, sunscreen and glasses strap if your wear them. In cooler weather add wool sweaters, wool socks, synthetic fleece jackets, fleece or wool hat, etc. Bring a rain jacket if you have one. Better to be prepared for the worst than under-dressed. Most jewelry should be removed and long hair restrained. A light sandwich lunch or finger food will be ready as soon as you return from zip lining.

    The fun is definitely not over yet. The rest of the afternoon is yours to relax around the yurts and facilities, or you are feeling adventurous you could go for a hike, schedule a kayak or paddle boarding trip or even a shuttle to take you and others into the Blue Ridge Mountains for spectacular views.

    Comfortable Round-Trip Transportation


    Everyone loves riding in the tour coach.

    Look for this coach when arriving on the first day.

    With 40 spacious seats, there is enough room for everyone.



    Each seat has power, reading light, and WiFi.


    The clean bathroom on board the coach.

    New 2013 Temsa Luxury Coach

    • 40 seats
    • WiFi internet stay connected for work, school, or home
    • 4 widescreen 15.4" LCD flat monitors
    • In-motion Satellite TV and DVD, AM/FM/CD,
    • Latest GPS navigation technology so we don't get lost
    • Reclining seats with 3 point seat belts, relax in comfort
    • Overhead storage for your bags or snacks
    • Under floor baggage for our suitcases
    • Rear window,
    • Individual 110v outlets to charge laptops, cell phones, and tablets, and other electronics while your online or offline.
    • Restroom! No more stopping every 50 miles for bathroom breaks, it's awesome traveling with our favorite creature comforts, this is practically like sitting at home.

     We also have authorization to bring snacks and drinks on board but food and drinks must remain in sealed spill-proof containers. No open cups or bottles will be allowed. Alcohol IS permitted on the coach as we travel, but it must be in a spill proof sealed container, no open cups! Its great to have a drink, have fun and relax, but please be responsible and limit your drinking, excessive drinking will NOT be tolerated and you will be asked by the driver to exit the coach.


     TAG does its best to contribute to the environment's health by reducing the carbon footprint of traveling groups.  You see, traveling by charter coach is the most ecologically sound method of transportation available.  We will reduce road-way traffic by removing as many as 30 cars off the road, during this trip  The carbon footprint of a single diesel charter bus is significantly smaller than the many cars it would take to move the same number of people. 


     In fact a passenger on a charter bus uses 85% less fuel, than a passenger in a Hybrid car.  Plus, the carbon dioxide output is a whole lot less than a loaded jet-liner, the vehicles you'd have to rent or use, once you got to your destination, or even the train.  Especially, because we always use ultra-low sulfur content fuel, which helps keep our air cleaner. The coach uses the latest EPA 2010 clean diesel technology to reduce exhaust emissions including a Diesel Particulate Filter and Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
