Destination Iceland 2022

 

66 degrees North

In the summer of 2022, our crew will sail with you to Iceland. For the Eye of the Wind, this expedition will be a journey into her own past, because from 1946 to 1966 the ship was used as a herring trawler off the Icelandic coast under the name Merry. (Where the lower salon and your cabins are located today, was at that time the large storage room for the fish). For you as fellow passengers, this project offers a perhaps unique opportunity to explore this fascinating land of fire and ice from both the water and land sides.

Your travel planning

We recommend having a travel agency add a land vacation to your sailing trip. Travel segments such as outbound and return flights, domestic flights, rental cars, additional hotel accommodations and shore excursions can be tailor-made by your travel agency. You have the option to combine individual cruise segments as you wish, for example also in the sequence sailing cruise - shore stay - sailing cruise.

The current situation

September 2021

 

Dear friends of the Eye of the Wind,

for the upcoming sailing trips in fall and winter, we ask our fellow travelers to take note of the following information:

Please inform yourself in good time about the current travel regulations in the countries you are visiting. Especially for trips where the ports of departure and destination are in different countries and/or where the itinerary includes stopovers in additional countries, the following applies: Please inform yourself about the entry regulations in all countries to be visited as well as about the return travel regulations to your home country.

In addition, ask the airline or train/bus company you have chosen for your arrival/departure to inform you of any special regulations.

We advise all fellow travelers to take out suitable travel insurance.

Of course, the following rule continues to apply: In the event that a travel offer has to be cancelled by the organizer FORUM train & sail GmbH due to legal or official requirements in connection with the Covid 19 pandemic, guests who have already booked will either receive a refund of all deposits made or a travel voucher in the corresponding amount. This applies in particular in the case of infection control regulations, general decrees or administrative acts to combat or prevent the spread of the Corona virus, which affect the implementation of individual trips with the Eye of the Wind and prohibit the accommodation of guests on board for tourist purposes. Other cases regarding the right of withdrawal and cancellation of the contract are regulated in our Terms and Conditions as well as, if applicable, within the framework of the travel insurance taken out by the traveler.

A comprehensive hygiene and safety concept, specially tailored to the particularities of ship operation, ensures that the applicable hygiene, distance and behavioral rules are implemented on board. We ask all fellow travelers for their understanding in view of these special circumstances, which we cannot influence. Many thanks! We will keep you informed about further findings. Please contact us if you have any questions on this subject.

Your team of the Eye of the Wind
