Would it be possible to do part of this tour on my way to WMOC in Copenhagen? (WMOC Sprint qualifiers start on July 6th.)

Brooke, yes. I will calculate you registration fee and your share of the motor coach lease fee accordingly. You might end up needing your own ride to the airport on the way to Copenhagen if it does not fit the collective schedule, or you could rent a car on your own and be completely independent but less relaxed!

OK, thank you for the information! I will contact you if I decide to attend both events. :-)

I’ve got quite a few cost break-down questions. Here is how it works: early bird fee (until midnight of December 31, 2017) -- $75 per participant, regular fee (until midnight of April 30, 2018) -- $95 per participant, late fee (until midnight of June 24, 2018) -- $115 per participant.
The registration fees will be used to purchase and print the maps, and for the courses design and logistics. Everything else will be on the cost-sharing basis. The price for the 53-seater motor coach per day comes to about 2, 000 CAD (40-50 CAD per person depending on how many we are).
I highly recommend getting the plane tickets with WOW air: there are direct flights from Montreal, Toronto, Boston, Washington, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Miami, Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, LA, San Francisco, Copenhagen, London, Paris …and many more. The company also offers group reservations matching the best on-line prices, I have booked 12 tickets from Montreal (please let me know if you’d like to join the group). For lodging, I recommend booking with Airbnb, ASAP. There will be 2 pick-up locations, at the parking lots of 2 public swimming pools: Laugardalsaug and Árbæjarlaug.
The advantage of renting an apartment is avoiding eating out: one of the major expenses in Iceland. Alternative to Airbnb: Rejkyavik Campsite:
Cost calculation example: my family of 4. Registration 75$ x 4 = 300, Air fare (seats reserved, 1 checked luggage bag per person): 660$ x 4= 2640$, bus fare share assuming we are 40 in total: 50$ x 7 x 4 = 1400$, food 25$ x7 x4 = 700$, lodging 6 nights 1,500$. Total 6,540$ or 1,635 $ (Canadian) per person. Most of the attractions are free, public pools maximum 10$ per adult. Do not plan to purchase any gifts: the prices are scary, but the last time I brought a whole bag of lava rocks and other minerals and everybody was happy.
So if you have more questions, ask away! If not, give your Orienteering-loving self the best Xmas gift ever: register!
