National Geographic in collaboration with Lindblad Expeditions is organizing a trip for Circumnavigation of Iceland, in which travelers can spend eight adventure-filled days on board.
In just over a week, the expedition cruise will circle the whole Iceland. According to the National Geographic the expedition is not only about to circumnavigate Iceland but it also includes some more adventure activities. The tour will also give the chance to explore largest ice cap and the lava-sculpted landscapes of the Westman Islands.
The travelers can soak themselves in hot springs, and see boiling mud pots and the thundering Godafoss Waterfall. The scattered icebergs of Jökulsárlón, is a major attraction of the tour. The travelers can go for whale watching and can enjoy spotting birds on the shores of Iceland.
"National Geographic was founded more than a century ago based on the aspirations of individuals who wanted to see and understand the world, and share their knowledge with as many people as possible," John Fahey, President and CEO, National Geographic Society, said. "Together with Lindblad, we are enhancing opportunities for research and discovery for our guests and everyone who cares about the planet."
The new fleet includes a state-of-the-art, ice-class expedition ship; the Explorer. The ship can accommodate 148 guests in 81 spacious cabins, each with outside views; private bathrooms; and sleek, modern furnishings.
National Geographic Explorer will begin its first ride July 11, 2013 in Reykjavík, Iceland. Interested people can choose from seven different categories of accommodation.
