Top 5 things to do in Iceland

imageIceland is a queer fish, an island country in the middle of the Atlantic that’s still considered to be part of Europe, and one whose name couldn’t be more misleading. Iceland is nowhere near a piece of South Pole like ice sheet, and only a very little part of the island is covered in ice. The rest of it is lush and verdant and has a surprisingly mild climate, with vast desolate landscapes that are absolutely stunning. Iceland is a great country for all sorts of activities, indoors and outdoors, and if you don’t mind quiet places with not much population, you will instantly fall in love with this otherworldly island. So here are the top 5 things to do in Iceland, for those who decide to visit it.

All seven ships in the P & O fleet will dock together for the first time next summer to mark the company’s 175th anniversary.

The vessels will meet in Southampton on July 3 2012, before embarking on seven different itineraries. Each cruise will be heritage-themed – with special entertainment, artwork and guest speakers – and will include an anniversary dinner.

A prize draw will also take place on board each ship, with seven passengers winning a place on a P&O world cruise in 2013.

Tickets are still available for five of the seven anniversary cruises, visiting the Canaries on board Azura, Iceland on board Arcadia, the Baltic on board Aurora, or the Mediterranean on board Ventura or Adonia.
