Trip Report Trip Report: Iceland and Scandinavia

Jump to last reply

We just got back from nearly two weeks in Iceland and Scandinavia last night -- and since the fourth cup of coffee is kicking in I thought I'd write up a short trip review.

Who went: Me (40), my husband (37) and my mom (60).

What we did: We flew Icelandair and since we saved about $300 per ticket (versus Delta), we decided to spend the first three nights in Reykjavik. I'm so glad we did! Then we traveled to Stockholm where we spent two nights before boarding a cruise ship to tour the Baltic.

Why we did what we did: We thought hard about the best way to tour the Baltic region and decided since we were taking my mom, it would be easiest to travel on the cruise ship versus taking the local ships to our destinations. Even though I'm not a big fan of cruise ships, I'm glad we did it this way for this trip. It definitely made things easier. (Since this isn't the right forum for cruise talk, I'll keep my cruise comments to a minimum.) We ended our trip with a final flight to Iceland before traveling back to the States.

First up: Iceland...
