Copenhagen has been nicknamed the “Happiest City on Earth.” Stroll around the Nyhavn Harbor and explore Tivoli Gardens (featuring rides, games, shows, and attractions), which dates back to 1843. Reykjavik is an adventure lover’s paradise. Go snowmobiling, see the Northern Lights, drive the famous Golden Circle, or soak in the world-renowned Blue Lagoon.

Supernatural Iceland…Elves, trolls & ghosts!
Surveys show that despite their obsession with modern technology, as many as 80% of Icelanders believe in the existence of elves. Even today, roads have been rerouted and building plans redesigned or abandoned to avoid disturbing rocks where elves are said to live.
All around the country, strange lava formations were once explained in folktales as trolls who were turned to stone when caught outdoors in daylight. But only children in Iceland believe in trolls today, and the once widespread belief in ghosts is in decline, some say because electricity has taken the fright out of the long winter nights.
Fun Fact about Copenhagen…You can shop ’til you drop! Copenhagen is home to the longest pedestrian shopping street in the entire world, Stroget. You’ll find plenty of international brands here, but also smaller Danish chains, where you can pick up some unique souvenirs from Denmark.
