Travel Club changes August meeting date
By Margo Vallone
The date of the Big Canoe Travel Club meeting featuring Hurtigruten Cruise Line’s Iceland Cruises has been moved from Aug. 24 to Aug. 17, beginning at 6 p.m., at The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti.
Director of National and Key Accounts for North America Rolf Logan will describe “The Elves, Sagas and Volcanoes of Iceland” 12-day tour and other offerings.
Hurtigruten is sometimes referred to as the Norwegian Coastal Express. The 11 coastal ships sail almost the entire length of the country, completing the round-trip journey from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again in 12 days, calling on 34 ports.
The trip along the Norwegian coast has been described as the "World's Most Beautiful Sea Voyage." Hurtigruten's expedition ships MS Fram, MS Midnatsol, MS Spitsbergen, MS Nordstjernen and MS Roald Amundsen offer Explorer voyages to Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, Spitsbergen, the Americas, Europe and across the Atlantic Ocean.
Big Canoe residents who have recently traveled to Iceland will share some of the highlights of their trips at this meeting.
