October 2015 Leisure Group Travel

October 2015 Leisure Group Travel

From the North Atlantic to the Deep South, the October 2015 issue of Leisure Group Travel gives tour planners a world of ideas for their next itineraries.

In October’s cover story, managing editor Randy Mink spotlights a new series of summer cruises that circumnavigate Iceland, a land whose geological landscape runs from glaciers and icebergs to geysers and volcanoes. The nine-night, nature-oriented voyage on the 224-passenger Ocean Diamond stops in a different port every day.

In her column on religious travel, Julie Hoover-Ernest, executive director of the Faith Travel Association, describes mission-trip projects in which travelers can combine travel adventure with good works. She mentions programs offered by Adventure Serve Ministries, Joshua Expeditions and Fathom, a new cruise line.

Associate publisher Dave Bodle reports on festive events coming up in the Deep South. “Natchez Turns 300” looks at 2016 events celebrating the Mississippi city’s tricentennial. Dave’s report on Shreveport- Bossier City talks about the Red River Mardi Gras Bash and other fun events and activities that fill the days of groups touring Northwest Louisiana. Also read about other places in southern realms – highlights of Southern Indiana and the casino resort haven of southernmost Nevada, Laughlin.

In the Northeast, Leisure Group Travel’s Lauren Reiniger focuses on a trip she and her mom took to Cape Cod and Nantucket. And timed perfectly for the season, the October issue’s New Hampshire story provides suggestions on how to experience the state’s fabled fall foliage.
