The Snorri Programs Welcome New Changes and New Faces

Updated: Jul 17

By Natalie Guttormsson


This past year has been a challenging one for the Snorri Programs. All four of the programs (Snorri, Snorri Plus, Snorri West, and the Alumni Internships) were cancelled as a well as the affiliate program, Snorri Deaf. But there is hope on the horizon and all programs are going ahead for 2021 - subject to changing Pandemic regulations, of course.

The Snorri West Program is still a four-week summer program in North America for Icelanders between the ages of 20 and 30 who want to connect with people of Icelandic descent in the US and Canada. The 2021 trip will go to the Central Corridor which includes Manitoba, Minnesota, and North Dakota.
