Friends!! I have found a new place to add to my travel bucket list! Iceland!! As I was researching this blog post my hubby and I were drooling over this amazing itinerary and have decided that we must absolutely see these things! This is one of the newest destinations that you can experience starting in 2018. 

 

Let's start by talking about Adventures by Disney. If you are not familiar (which honestly I wasn't either before I started this travel endeavor) then let me give you a brief overview of how amazing these trips are. Think of the best possible guided tour that you can imagine... that's what this is! Your will be in a small group which will be led every step of the way by 2 tour guides who along with local experts will have you engaging in extraordinary experiences that just aren't available to the public. Each itinerary has it's own unique things to do from adult to kid friendly fun. All of the details are taken care of for you and your family from the moment you arrive at the airport where you will be greeted by your tour guides. From refreshments en route to your tour destinations  to transfers and luggage service, you will have the full VIP treatment. These are truly culturally immersive, one of a kind experiences that you cannot find anywhere else. Sounds great already, right?

 

So,  for me,  Iceland was not a place I had ever thought of travelling to... until now that is! Holy cow this place is cool! (Pun intended) You will marvel at the unparalleled beauty as you will get to experience waterfalls, glaciers, whale watching and even volcanoes!
