What we're about

This is a group for those who are interested in attending art museum exhibits, music concerts, theater, and dance performances with other members. Those over 40 are encouraged to join (my other group is Travel Companions 40+). We will also send out some travel opportunities here, both organized overseas tours and more independent-travel-type trips that the Organizer does from time to time.

If you would like to do meetups in this group, whether its classical or contemporary arts and cultural events, please contact the Organizer. Event Organizers will need to share some of the cost of the dues paid to Meetup for hosting this group, as that is their business model (organizers pay Meetup for the group).

If you are joining as a member, please be responsible and sign up to attend only those events that you are sure you can attend. If your plans change, please change your RSVP as soon as possible. For travel notices, you can indicate interest by RSVP'ing Yes, and someone will get in touch with you.

This is partly a revival of a former Meetup group called Seattle Arts and Cultural Events, that suddenly went away. The Organizer of this group was an Event Organizer in that group for many years. So welcome to this group! We hope you will enjoy the arts and cultural activities that are posted here and also make some wonderful friends along the way! As stated before, please be responsible about signing up for events and showing up.

A slow-paced, small group trip through Iceland… There’s so much to do and see in Iceland and it can be really hard to fit all in one trip. Lots of fast-paced tours cram everything into 5 days, but we’re going to take our time and travel at an easy-going pace along the Ring Road in 11 days which means no rushing on and off the bus with only 10 minutes to hurry up and take a few pics at every stop. Our small group size will also let us see some of the off-the-beaten path spots in Iceland :

- Mykvan Hot Springs : We’ll visit the bucket list Blue Lagoon, but Mykvan are less crowded and very relaxing for a perfect zen moment.
- Secret Iceberg Lagoon : Take a zodiac to a “hidden” iceberg lagoon where we’ll be the only ones. Just you and huge icebergs up close & personal!
- Beer spa & jacuzzi : Soak in beer-filled jacuzzis with snow-capped mountains as a backdrop while sipping on your favorite lager.

Included :
- 10 nights accommodation (double occupancy)
- Local Icelandic guide throughout
- Private ground transportation in private 4x4 minibus
- Most activities
- Blue Lagoon visit
- All breakfasts
- Airport pick-up

*COVID UPDATE : If your trip is cancelled prior to departure in the event of a COVID-19-related reason, a full refund will be made.
