Reykjavik, Iceland

— 10 nights
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Family-friendly places like Reykjadalur Hot Springs and Ghost & Vampire Tours will thrill your kids. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Thingvellir National Park and Bruarfoss Waterfall. Get out of town with these interesting Reykjavik side-trips: Faxi (Vatnsleysufoss) Waterfall (in Skalholt), Strokkur (in Geysir) and Haukadalur (in Blaskogabyggd). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Reykjavik Open Air Museum, admire all the interesting features of Videy Island, take a memorable drive along Ring Road, and explore the striking landscape at Langjokull Glacier.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
