watch

A whale watch cruise will be one of the exciting activities included in the tour to Iceland next summer.

We’re heading into the holidays and everyone gets so busy.

But we hope you’re not too busy to take a look at the Fun Club’s travel schedule. There are lots of fun activities listed on our calendar. Perhaps our summer 2020 tour to Iceland might interest you.

Iceland is a land of volcanoes, majestic waterfalls and craggy mountains. It’s a country where the landscapes change from rolling hills dotted with grazing sheep to glaciers that stretch for miles. And sometimes the landscape looks a little like Mars. The Fun Club has scheduled a tour to this fascinating island nation on June 3-9, 2020. You do not need to have traveled with the Fun Club previously to join us for our adventures.

The seven-day Iceland trip will include the Golden Circle Tour which is a 190-mile circular route that encompasses many of Iceland’s most famous landmarks. Among the sites on the circle tour is Stokkur Geyser which erupts every few minutes spouting water 100 feet in the air.

On the South Coast of Iceland, we’ll see Skogafoss which is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country. It has a width of 82 feet and a drop of 200 feet. Due to the amount of spray it consistently produces, a rainbow is normally visible.

We will also travel to one of Iceland’s most famous attractions, the Blue Lagoon. Another featured activity is a whale watch cruise which departs from the harbor at Reykjavik. And something everyone will love is that all five nights accommodations will be in the fabulous Grand Hotel in Reykjavik which is their largest city.

The cost of the tour with the booking discount is $3,995 per person with a double room. A single room is higher. Interested in learning more? Give us a call at 402-745-6477 or stop to see us at the News-Times building to ask for a brochure. We’re in the office every weekday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.
