Hurtigruten Offers To Iceland For Spring 2019
Hurtigruten is best known for its operation along Norway's western and northern coast between Bergen and Kirkenes.
But as a world leader in exploration travel, they also offer expedition cruises in Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, Spitsbergen, Northwest Passage and more.
A land of stunning contrasts, Iceland is home to volcanic landscapes and massive glaciers; dramatic geysers and powerful waterfalls; cosmopolitan cities and charming villages, and now you can head there too, with the added bonus of greatly reduced airfare, when you book a Hurtigruten Iceland Expedition for Spring 2019. Now through November 30, 2018, Hurtigruten is offering flights to select expeditions in Iceland for USD140 per person from Vancouver—and they want you to join them!
Circumnavigating Iceland is a 12-day expedition that begins and ends in Reykjavík, cruising into countless nooks and crannies along the way. Highlights include:
- Discovering one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets: the Látrabjarg Peninsula. Europe’s westernmost post is home to dramatic cliffs and a simply stunning number of seabirds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots, and razorbills.
- Crossing the Arctic Circle. This happens at Grímsey, which, despite straddling the circle, has a mild temperature and is known for its lush, green vegetation.
- Visiting Húsavík, one of the oldest settlements in Iceland, and one of the best whale-watching locations in the world: humpback, minke, fin, orca, and sei whales have all been spotted here.
Departure dates are May 18th, May 29th, June 9th, and June 20th, 2019.
