Iceland resembles a fantasy novel come to life. Volcanoes and waterfalls dot the landscape, giant creatures swim the seas, and hot springs sit in the shadows of ice-capped mountains. However, unlike the lands written about in stories, Iceland is real and waiting for you.Much like the Vikings who first visited Iceland, your voyage begins in Scandinavia-specifically in colorful and modern Copenhagen. Then, spend three days on your boutique hotel at sea before arriving in Heimaey.
