Combine two great destinations on our Taste of Iceland and Ireland guided vacation! We’ll bring the familiar CIE Tours magic: all the local knowledge you crave, tour directors committed to your comfort and with a knack for storytelling, and an all-inclusive policy that means you’ll have all your visits included in the price. Plus, that signature warm welcome that only CIE Tours can deliver.
You’ll begin in Iceland. Settled by Vikings a thousand years ago, this land of volcanoes and glaciers is an island of spectacular contrasts. Fire and ice combine to create an unforgettable, amazing landscape of stark beauty. In the summer, you’ll revel in the midnight sun; in the winter, watch out for the ephemeral, unpredictable beauty of the Northern Lights.
See cascading waterfalls, gushing geysers, black lava landscapes, and the colorful charm of Reykjavik. Traverse the famed Golden Circle, where you’ll see not only natural wonders but also the site where the Icelandic Parliament began – in the year 930. At the end of it all, you’ll soak in the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon, ensconced in a dreamy fog from water heated by nearby lava fields.
When you continue on to Dublin, you’ll be getting the perfect introduction to the Emerald Isle, featuring many of the top highlights. Tour Dublin and visit Dublin Castle, kiss the Blarney Stone and shop in Blarney Woolen Mills, take a drive through the glorious scenery of the Ring of Kerry, and see Skellig Michael – once the home of Christian monks but more recently a setting for “Star Wars VII”. Gaze at the wondrous Cliffs of Moher, feast medieval-style in a castle, and much more!
Dublin is an ideal connection point for combining European destinations, so we’re offering this combination Iceland and Ireland itinerary for a taste of both countries in one vacation: “Taste of Iceland and Ireland”.
