Tauck Tours focus on delivering off the beaten track tours to people who want to have the holiday of a lifetime without having to cripple themselves financially. One of the tours they offer is a tour to Iceland. So why should you go there?
Iceland with Tauck Tours
When you visit Iceland with Tauck Tours, you will get to cruise various picturesque fishing villages, Reykjavik in all its cosmopolitan beauty, old farmlands and, of course, the true natural wonders of this remote country. Walk along landscapes of black lave, see fjords surrounded by mountains, see glaciers and sulphur fields, watch geyser spout up in the air and be amazed by majestic waterfalls. A trip to a thermal lagoon is not to be missed either.
Why You Should Visit Iceland with Tauck Tours
- Iceland is a country that has been able to combine two opposing forces: fire and ice. There are hot volcanoes, geysers and thermal springs. At the same time, there are glaciers, frozen lakes and you can see the Northern Lights. Nowhere else in the world has this perfect combination been achieved naturally.
- Iceland is a country with a beautiful history and folklore and this is something they continue to be proud of. Iceland, for instance, is one of the only countries in the world that does not have a McDonald’s (although the last meal ever sold at a McDonald’s there can be seen in a museum, where you will notice it has not rotten over the past two years). They are also the only country to date that has jailed the bankers, placing them squarely responsible for the financial crisis. Additionally, they have folklore, legends, myths and other fascinating stories about trolls, dwarves and various other mystical creatures.
- The weather is always great. Nobody is going to go to Iceland to get a suntan, obviously. However, the climate is gentle, and so long as you have dressed properly, you should be able to withstand the colder temperatures. While cold, it is generally dry so you can enjoy the countryside and various sights that your tour operator will take you to without having to bring an umbrella or parka. Do expect to get wet, however, if you are visiting the geysers.
- If you love live music, then you will lose your heart in Iceland. Home of the quirky, eccentric signer Bjork, the country has various other types of music as well. It has often been described as being very much like Ireland, with live music coming from every corner, inn and pub.
As you can see, there is plenty to do in Iceland. If you are going on holiday here through Tauck Tours, you know you are going to have a great time. You will truly lose your heart there seeing the beauties and true miracles of nature.
