Each year, the Alumni Relations Office offers opportunities for alumni and the Concordia family to participate in travel experiences led by our in-house experts.

Norway and Sweden

Experience Norway and Sweden alongside The Concordia Choir! With concerts planned in Stockholm, Uppsala, Oslo, Bergen, Lillehammer, and Stavanger, you’ll take in the beautiful sights in Scandinavia while hearing great choral music from The Concordia Choir.

Novel Routes Through England: A Literary Tour

Literature lovers and bookworms will delight in exploring sites associated with England’s greatest writers: their birthplaces, homes, resting places, and museums. Join Dr. Amy Watkin, associate professor of English, to learn about this rich literary history while enjoying some of England’s most beautiful scenery and the historic towns that inspired these writers.

A Taste of Norway

Join Norwegian travel and food enthusiasts Dr. Lisa Sethre-Hofstad, vice president for student development and campus life and professor of psychology, and Dr. Joan Kopperud, professor emeritus of English, to experience how centuries of Norwegian food traditions continue to influence innovative approaches to today’s culinary dishes. Travelers will enjoy first-hand experiences with Norwegian food and culture, including a Viking plank dinner, a Michelin Star restaurant dining experience, a cooking lesson with North Wild Kitchen’s Nevada Berg, and more.

All travelers with Concordia Alumni Travel Programs are covered under the college’s travel insurance through Educational and Institutional Insurance Administrators, Inc. (EIIA).  They partner with World Travel Protection. 

Visit EIIA Travel Insurance with World Travel Protection for more details such as a Coverage Summary Sheet, FAQ, contact information, and claim forms.  You can also request the information by email alumni@cord.edu and the Office of Alumni Relations will email you the documents. 

Concordia strongly recommends that you purchase additional trip cancellation insurance at the time of registration to recover your payments should you need to withdraw from the program. You should especially consider Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) coverage from a travel insurance provider. Because quite a lot of coverage is already included with Concordia’s policy, look for providers that let you build plans from a menu rather than relying on pre-bundled packages.

Ed-Ventures offers travel insurance through Travel Guard at the time of registration. You can contact Ed-Ventures to determine if that is the right policy for you. For additional insurance options over and above what we offer, you can do some research at https://www.insuremytrip.com/
