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.
What better way to enjoy a visit to one of Europe's most spectacular and unique destinations than a bathing tour or just a visit to Iceland's newest health-spa? Myvatn Nature Baths is the latest addition to the region's many visitor attractions. The tastefully designed complex offers bathers a completely natural experience with a relaxing dip in clouds of steam rising up from a fissure deep in the Earth's surface. Containing a unique blend of minerals, silicates and geothermal micro-organisms, the warm, soothing waters of Myvatn Nature Baths benefit both skin and spirit alike.
An opportunity not to be missed! Iceland has fast become known as the whale watching' capital of northern Europe'. Akureyri offers some of the best whale watching opportunities in Europe and a wide variety of marine mammals are spotted regularly as they come into the bay to feed.
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.
