In a previous post I shared photo highlights from the first three days of the all-new Adventures by Disney Iceland vacation. From waterfalls to Iceland horses, glacial lakes and more, this adventure to Iceland is truly astounding. Now I have even more amazing photos to share, showcasing the fun adventurers have on the second half of this 8-day, 7-night vacation.
On day 4 of the trip, adventurers jetted off to the Northern part of Iceland, arriving at Akureyri. Here they visited a quaint fishing village, and even had the chance to try their hand at fishing (while donning some pretty impressive fishing gear).
While cruising through the longest fjord in Iceland, guests spotted humpback whales who surfaced to say “hello!”
A visit to the lava fields at Dimmuborgir allowed guests to see where the landscape, which means “black castle,” gets its name. The lava pillars, columns and arches here were created more than 2,000 years ago.
Adventurers also had fun getting into the local legends and customs. Yule Lads, mischievous boys who are akin to a trouble-making Santa Claus, made a special visit. And, guests took part in baking Iceland’s famous brown Geysir bread, which the locals commonly call “Bread in a Bucket,” where dough is placed in buckets, buried underground and baked by the heat from nearby hot springs.
These are just a few of the highlights from the first season of this awe-inspiring vacation. If Iceland wasn’t at the top of your “must see” list, I’m sure it is now! Make a wish, or simply call and book your dream adventure to this magical land.
