ICELAND CIRCUMNAVIGATION CRUISE: Medical/Dental Healthcare Needs in Iceland

July 29 - August 5


The Professional Education Society invites you to join our CME/CE Seminar for Medical, Dental, Nursing and Allied Healthcare Professionals

Join PES on a voyage of discovery! Surround yourself with breathtaking scenery and visit extreme lands of fire and ice on this week-long journey to Iceland! Plus, cross the Arctic Circle to witness the extraordinary midnight sun!

Our itinerary includes volcanoes and glaciers, lava fields and green pastures, boiling thermal springs and ice-cold rivers teeming with salmon. This unspoiled paradise is also home to a very old and sophisticated culture. Go far beyond the tourist hotspots to remote fjords, raging waterfalls, and small fishing villages. Get to know the independent and creative Icelanders, and watch whales and seabirds play offshore.
