Make the most of your vacation with a shore and land excursion that appeals to your interests. Knowledgeable, professional guides lead all excursions and offer special insights into the culture, history, wildlife, and geology of each destination. Discover first-hand how islanders went about the business of growing, harvesting and refining sugar in 18th century Barbados. Take an invigorating mush across a snow-covered glacier aboard an Alaskan dogsled. Or stroll through the maze of tiny streets in Mykonos, the birthplace of Apollo.
If you think Iceland looks good from the ground, wait until you've seen it from the air. This is an unforgettable tour over the Tindfjallajokull and Eyjafjallajokull glaciers but with a difference. Between the ice and snow fields you'll see Hekla, the most famous of Iceland's volcanoes, which last erupted in 2000. Other places of interest along the way include Thingvellir, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, and Geysir area, one of the world's most outstanding geothermal spots. Here, the active geyser "Strokkur" spouts water every few minutes. All in all, this experience should not be missed.
Important: Please remember you have up to 4 days prior to your sail date to purchase your regular shore excursions online. If you are within the 4 days, you will then need to purchase your shore excursions onboard; land excursions would need to be purchased directly through your Tour Director on the land portion of the Alaska Cruisetour. For example, if you are sailing on October 18, you can make Shore & Land Excursion purchases online until October 13.
