Travel with Augustana
This is your chance to explore the world with your fellow Vikings!
For your consideration, there are two exciting opportunities on the horizon for 2019 and 2020 — an alumni and friends tour to the People's Republic of China with The Augustana Band and a once-in-a-lifetime trip to see the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany.
Leading both tour groups will be world traveler and fellow alumnus, Brad Heegel '76. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Brad directly. He will be happy to forward you the complete written itineraries and field any questions you might have. Seating on these tours is limited, so please make your plans now to be a part of the adventure.
Over the years, Augustana alumni have had the opportunity to travel to many interesting locations. Recent trips have taken us to Eastern Europe (2018), Greece (2013), and Norway (2011). Alumni have also accompanied our music ensembles on international travel experiences. Alumni traveled with The Augustana Choir to Europe (2013 and 2017) and with the Augustana Band on their 2011 trip to Egypt and their 2007 and 2015 trips to China.
"The 2013 Augustana Alumni and Friends tour of Greece was a trip of a lifetime for my wife and me. The trip had everything you could ask for: fabulous scenery, wonderful people, fantastic food, great shopping, comfortable travel accommodations; all within a relaxing environment where major decisions such as hotels, travel from one locale to another, etc. were taken care of for us. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and conveyed the information in ways that helped create lasting memories. Best of all: we had great fun!"
— Ward Herst, Augustana parent
