EXPEDITIONS: A journey takes place during the first half of the World Scout Moot 2017. The journeys will be in different places around Iceland and include a variety of different activities. The participants choose their journey when registering for the World Scout Moot 2017.  The choice in expeditions is used to form each patrol.
