Dreaming of going to London? Itching to go to Iceland? Typically, you'd think of these as separate trips. But Undiscovered Destinations just launched an itinerary that includes both locations. The London to Iceland Rail and Sea Adventure takes place over 15 days and includes travel by train and boat.
Beginning in London, you will board the Eurostar at St. Pancras, zooming underground the English Channel to Brussels. There you will take a high-speed train to Cologne, stopping in Hamburg, Germany. From Germany, you'll head to Denmark and spend a whole day in the stunning city of Aarhus (aka the European Capital of Culture in 2017). You can explore the Scandinavian destination by bike or on foot, including venturing to the nearby beaches and forests if you wish. Then the nautical portion of the adventure begins.
You will travel by train to Jutland's tip before hopping on the 'Norröna' ferry, which connects Denmark, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. The boat takes you across the North Atlantic Ocean while you get to enjoy an outdoor hot tub, among other comforts. Once you reach the Faroe Islands, you'll get three full days of self-exploring as well as a guided tour of Streymoy.
The final stretch of the journey takes you all the way to Iceland. You will once again board the 'Norröna' ferry and arrive in Seyðisfjörður. A rental car will be waiting upon your arrival, allowing you to finish out the trip with a self-drive itinerary. The team will suggest Iceland's most popular spots for you to visit, ensuring that you get the most out of the experience. You'll get to partake in a glacier walk, spend two nights in the capital of Reykjavik, and visit the famous Blue Lagoon before flying home.
The incredible experience costs £2,790 ($3,872) per person, based on two people traveling.
