March 2022
News on Iceland ProCruises, Iceland ProTravel, Hótel Ísland & Pax More Greece
Dear Colleague,

Change is in the air! For many people, March marks a welcome transition to gradually warmer days. Of course, for those of us in Canada, it means only a couple more months of snow.

We aren't the only ones experiencing change — our clients are feeling it too! 

Iceland just announced that all Covid-19 border restrictions have been lifted (regardless of a traveler’s vaccination status). And Greece isn't far behind — the Mediterranean nation just declared that vaccinated travelers from the U.S. and Canada can enter without a PCR test. These are milestones in the reopening of global travel.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, please book an appointment with me here

Yours truly,

Why Take the Kids to Iceland?
There are plenty of reasons . . . like a chance to see whales and other wildlife in their natural habitat, walking across lava fields, kayaking iceberg-filled lagoons, learning more about
Vikings at the very spots where they used to live, exploring the volcanic landscape on a 4×4 adventure, and going off road on a quad bike.
