Iceland Honeymoon Ideas
If you and your new spouse are looking for an adventure destination for your honeymoon, look no further than Iceland. If you visit during whale season, book a boat trip from Reykjavik and enjoy the chance to see humpback whales, porpoises and orcas. Ride ATV's together on an excursion along Iceland's gorgeous black sand beaches and lava fields. If you two are feeling daring, descend 400 feet into a dormant volcano or take a caving tour of the Thrihnukagigur volcano instead. Finally, take a helicopter flight over Iceland's capital of Reykjavik and see an aerial view of this city's colorful roofs, important landmarks and vast wilderness.
This trip is different. Make it count.
