News on Iceland ProCruises, Iceland ProTravel, Hótel Ísland & Pax More Greece
Dear Colleague,
I can’t believe the last month of summer is already upon us (sorry for the reminder)! It seemed to fly by this year, especially when you’re as far north as me!
Iceland ProCruises has finished their Iceland itineraries for the season and are wrapping up their Greenland cruises this month. Their 2023 North Atlantic journeys are already booking up fast. So make sure to take advantage of the 20% Early Bird rates, which apply until 31 December 2022. 
Iceland ProTravel and Pax More Greece are still busy with summer tourists. And breaking news from Iceland - Geldingadalir Volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula near Reykjavik is erupting again. Stay tuned for an announcement about Iceland ProTravel's Volcano City Break. Keep an eye out in future newsletters for festive season and winter offers in Greece, too.
If you have any questions or would like additional information on any of the above, please don't hesitate to reach out. 

Any enjoy the rest of the warm weather while it lasts!

  • The number of American travelers who chose Greece for a vacation this year increased by 50% compared to 2019! Apart from increasing interest in the country, we can thank the opening of new direct routes to Athens from the main American hubs for that.
  • Travel + Leisure magazine published their “World’s Best” awards and out of 20 European Islands, 7 are Greek! The voters gave the high prize to the following Greek islands: Milos, Paros, Crete, Corfu and Ionian islands, Santorini, Rhodes and Dodecanese, and Mykonos.
  • Athens is in one of the leading destinations in Europe for offering the best value for money. A recent study by Mabrain analyzed air connectivity, the average hotel price, the level of satisfaction, and the perception of visitors who placed Athens in second. 
  • There is still time to enjoy the warm Mediterranean Sea this season! Combine the Athenian riviera and iconic Santorini. Staying at a beautiful boutique hotel "Somewhere in  Vouliagmeni" you will be in the heart of the authentic region of the Athenian Riviera, just 5 minutes away from the beautiful beach and only 30 minutes away from the center city of Athens. Beautiful Santorini is just a flight away where you can enjoy the stunning view and luxurious experience in the new Nimbus boutique hotel! Contact Pax More to book your last minute Greece vacation!
