Greenland/Iceland: Highlights tour

Gallery "Iceland"

Gallery "Greenland"

"Highlights of Iceland and Greenland" is an aptly named tour, because each and every one of the natural wonders waiting for you above and below the water every day is a highlight. This is a tour for divers who would like to explore the arctic diversity of Greenland and Iceland. Countless photo opportunities should satisfy even the most ambitious photographers.

It is worth emphasizing the number of different dive sites we will visit, especially considering all the additional sights and adventures we will enjoy in between dives. Every minute of this tour, particularly during our stay in Iceland, is put to good use. Local guides will accompany you on all tours and are happy to share their expertise and answer all of your questions. During this trip, we will be changing accommodations quite frequently, and luggage should be kept easy to handle. The standard of the accommodations is generally good, but Greenland’s infrastructure does not offer great luxury. This is a discovery tour that lets you explore the most interesting regions of Northern Europe below and above water.
