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

Don't you think time has been strange the last couple of years? It feels like things are happening slow and fast at the same time. For example, how is it already summer? 

Farmers in the Canadian Prairies where I live are working against the clock to get their crops in. As for Europe? They're gearing up for a record-breaking tourist season. Greece, Iceland and Greenland are expecting busy, action-packed and fun-filled summers for a growing number of international visitors. 

As we know, time flies. It's not too early to start thinking about the 2022 Holiday season, or better yet, next summer! Our European clients are already getting inquiries for the summer of 2023. Want to learn more? Please feel free to book an appointment with me 

Enjoy the sunshine!
