Everett Family Vacation
10 days through Iceland, England and Copenhagen
June 4-14, 2018
Beautiful landscapes, amazing adventures, history and culture await you on this European journey!
Today you embark on your journey to Europe!
First stop... Iceland!
Your flight leaves just after midnight, so be sure to make your way to the Cleveland airport on Sunday evening.
You'll arrive in the afternoon, so check into your hotel and explore the Golden Circle!
Your bungalows will be perfectly situated across from the entrance to the geyser!
All other geysers are named after Strokkur!
See the lively geyser erupt roughly every 5-10 minutes and reach a height up to 25 meters along with observing the other geothermal features of the area.
One of the great benefits of this location, is the ability to watch the geyser erupt in the evenings, after the crowds have gone. Witness this unique sight all on your own!
For all those interested in trying the Icelandic horse, a trek on the hardy, sure-footed Icelandic horse is an experience to remember.
Whether you are a beginner or expert, these friendly horses with their alert and willing nature are indeed a pleasure to ride in their natural surroundings.
Riding to Gullfoss waterfall can give an ultimate satisfaction if you're looking for nothing but the best panoramas. First, this ride goes along the majestic canyon of Hvítá river, then takes to the waterfall itself.
At Gullfoss horses have a little break while our guests can admire the waterfall or have a cup of coffee in Gullfoss Cafe.
After your horseback riding adventure, use your rental cars to explore the Thingvellir National Park before returning home to soak in the natural hot springs close to the resort!
Thingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site
Get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and on where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world´s oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930.
Today is your day to explore Iceland!
Your rental cars will allow you to drive at your own pace.
While we do have tours available if you would prefer a guide to help you navigate... we suggest making sure that you see these major destinations at your doorstep!
Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran (Church of Iceland) parish church in Reykjavík, Iceland.
At 74.5m high, it is the largest church in Iceland and among the tallest structures in Iceland. The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614–1674), author of the Passion Hymns.
Click Here for more information on Hallgrimskirkja.
Sun Voyager is a sculpture by Jón Gunnar Árnason, located next to the Sæbraut road in Reykjavík, Iceland. Sun Voyager is described as a dreamboat, or an ode to the sun. The artist intended it to convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom.

The Settlement Exhibition Reykjavík 871 +/- 2 is an exhibition on the settlement of Reykjavík, Iceland, created by the Reykjavik City Museum. The exhibition is based on the archaeological excavation of the ruin of one of the first houses in Iceland and findings from other excavations in the city centre. The focus of the exhibition is the remains of a hall from the Settlement Age which was excavated in 2001. The hall was inhabited from c. 930–1000. North of the hall are two pieces of turf, remnants of a wall which was clearly built before 871±2, hence the name of the exhibition.

Depart/ Arrive in London
This morning, you'll check out of your accommodations, and drive to the airport for your flight to London.
When you arrive, check into your central London hotel and begin exploring the city!
London Rock Music Tour
Beatles Evening Tour
Music lovers! This is the ideal way to discover London's rock music history.
Your small-group tour (maximum 16 people) will cover everything from rock 'n' roll landmarks in bohemian Soho to the north London neighborhoods of Camden Town, Hampstead Village and Heath, Muswell Hill, Archway and Islington.
9am Morning Tour (3.5 Hours):
Take a tour through historic London neighborhoods including Soho, Islington and Camden Town, and discover where many of the wild adventures in the history of rock ‘n’ roll took place. Pass Paul McCartney’s Golden Disc-covered office and the flat where he wrote the Beatles hit song ‘Yesterday.’ You'll also see the flat shared by the Fab Four and walk across the famous Abbey Road crossing outside the recording studio.
Stop by ‘Tin Pan Alley,’ where the Rolling Stones cut their first disc, and check out the Pink Floyd studios. Sites of other famous events include the place where Jimi Hendrix burned his first guitar, where Jimmy Page cut his first disc and where Amy Winehouse lived and died. Pass more than 50 additional sites connected with U2, The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Queen, The Who, Zombies, Madness, Elton John and more.
745a - 8p: Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, Pub Lunch in Lacock
Start with a pickup in central London, and travel out of the city to visit majestic Windsor Castle. Be one of the first visitors of the day, and beat the crowds as you explore the elegant State Apartments and St George’s Chapel with your guide. The castle is one of the Queen’s weekend retreats, and is the perfect place to experience some 900 years of pageantry at your own pace.
Continue onward to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stonehenge, one of the most famous prehistoric monuments in the world. Stonehenge is thought to date back nearly 5,000 years, and very little is known of its origins. Was it a place of pagan sun worship? Could it have been an ancient burial ground? Decide for yourself as you explore the site.
Your next stop is the pretty village of Lacock, one of the most picturesque settings in the country. Lacock dates back to Saxon times, and has been used more recently as the setting for movies and television dramas such as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and the adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Take the weight off your feet and sit down for lunch at the George, a traditional English pub built in the 14th century. On rare occasions, when the George is closed, a carefully selected alternative pub may be visited for lunch instead.
Continue to your final stop in the charming Georgian city of Bath, once home to the famous British author Jane Austen. Start the visit with a coach tour of the city, and see top Bath attractions such as Pulteney Bridge and the Royal Crescent as well as the honey-colored Georgian architecture for which the city is famed. After getting your bearings, set off on a short stroll with your guide and scout out the Roman Baths and beautiful Bath Abbey. Walk around the city’s cobbled streets, shop for souvenirs and take time to pose for photos in front of the beautiful buildings.
Tower of London Entrance Ticket Including Crown Jewels and
Make your own way to the Tower of London on the banks of the Thames River. With your entrance ticket, bypass the long lines at the main ticket office, and head through the group entrance and security into this imposing palace-fortress.
Built by William the Conqueror in 1066, the Tower has a dark 1,000-year history as a royal palace, prison and execution place, as well as a royal mint and armoury. Today, it still stores the British monarch’s Crown Jewels, just as it has done since 1303.
Once inside, explore independently or choose to take an optional audio-guided tour (own expense) or complimentary tour led by a Yeoman Warder or ‘Beefeater’, one of the ceremonial guards. The 1-hour Yeoman-led tours leave from inside the entrance every 30 minutes until the mid-afternoon, and offer a compelling insight into the tower’s history and sites.
See the brooding ravens as you walk around and be swept up by the grim but fascinating stories of the turrets, chambers and buildings around you. Visit the main, White Tower, to see its Royal Armouries exhibits, and enter the Bloody Tower, reputed to be where the ‘Princes in the Tower’ were murdered by an unknown hand in around 1483.
See Traitors’ Gate, through which the arrested Anne Boleyn was brought by boat from the Thames River. Then, walk to Tower Green where she was beheaded in 1536 on the orders of Henry VII, and where a string of monarchs and traitors also met a grisly end.
Step back to Tudor times at the Medieval Palace, where recreated medieval interiors detail comfortable lifestyles of Tudor monarchs such as Henry VIII, and stretch your legs with a Wall Walk, strolling along the massive encircling walls to discover more sites.
Lastly, don’t miss the Crown Jewels, the royal regalia and gems that symbolize the British monarchy. Join the separate queue to gaze at these sparkling exhibits, including St Edward’s Crown, used at coronations since 1661, and the legendary Koh-i-Noor diamond, the 105.6-carat diamond given to Queen Victoria in 1849.
Depart/Arrive in Copenhagen
Copenhagen Canal Tour
You'll check out of your London hotel and transfer to the airport for your flight to Copenhagen.
Upon landing, you'll then make your way to your central Copenhagen hotel.
With time left in your day, get acquainted with Denmark’s wonderful capital from the water on a
1-hour Copenhagen boat tour.
Make your own way to the cruise jetty in central Copenhagen in time for your preferred departure slot.
Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot in the saloon or on the outdoor deck for your 1-hour journey. Then, sit back and take in the picturesque sights as you glide along Copenhagen’s canals and harbor waters. These pretty waterways weave through the history-steeped center, so every turn and twist reveals a new, photo-worthy sight.
Watch for must-sees such as the Little Mermaid statue, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; and as you cruise, learn about Copenhagen’s rich history from the onboard guide, who will share illuminating facts and background on the sights.
Drift by the Amalienborg Palace – the winter residence of Denmark’s royals since the 1700s – and pass Copenhagen Opera House, a stunning contemporary building that stands imperiously on the harbor-side.
Cruise around the pretty canals of Christianshavn, with its cobbled streets, pastel-colored houses and old warehouses. Admire the area’s lovely landmarks, such as the Church of Our Saviour with its winding-staircase spire, and hear how King Christian IV established the district in the 1600s as part of his plans to fortify Copenhagen.
Pass a host of other famous buildings, and snap pictures of the Old Stock Exchange, famous for its unusual spire, as you sail by the island of Slotsholmen in the city center.
Finally, return to the starting jetty at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand, where your cruise finishes.
Today is your day to see Copenhagen... or perhaps even get out of town a bit...
Consider visiting the Frilandsmuseet Museum!
On the northern outskirts of Copenhagen, at Kongens Lyngby, you’ll find a picturesque Open Air Museum showcasing centuries of Danish history and culture.
Over 100 preserved farmhouses and buildings are on display, including many half-timbered houses with thatched roofs that typify 18th century style. Folk dancers, horse drawn carriages, museum exhibits and blacksmith demonstrations give you the feeling like you’ve stepped back in time.
It’ll cost you nothing to visit the Frilandsmuseet, but you’ll come away richer for the experience.
Or ... for a TRULY unique experience, go Giant hunting in the woods just south of Copenhagen!
Called The Six Forgotten Giants, the whimsical structures can be seen in the areas of Rødovre, Hvidovre, Vallensbæk, Ishøj, Albertslund and Høje Taastrup.
The project was inspired by the idea of bringing art out of museums and showcasing the beautiful and often overlooked nature spots in the western part of Copenhagen, while at the same time providing an exciting experience for children, families, locals and tourists alike.
CLICK HERE for a treasure map and description for each of the hidden Giants!
If you want to stay in town... check out the Torvehallerne Market!
If you want to hang with the hipsters and food lovers of Copenhagen, head to Torvehallerne.
This atmospheric marketplace features over 60 stands of organic produce, artisanal breads, gourmet chocolates, local cheeses, sustainable coffee, a range of bars and restaurants and more. The smørrebrød open-faced sandwiches alone are like works of art.
With street entertainment and cultural events, its a bustling haven for people-watchers and foodies, with plenty of free and tasty samples on hand.
It’s also a great place to gather elements for a picnic or self-catered meal, thereby cutting down your costs of eating out in pricey Copenhagen.
1015a-4p: In the Footsteps of the Vikings A daytrip from Copenhagen to Roskilde

You will not only follow in the footsteps of the Vikings, you will be at the cradle of Danish civilization in Lejre, one of the most important power centers during the Viking Era and Iron Age dating from 500-1000 AC and home to a unique complex of long houses.
