Taking a group picture
After Finland, we sailed to Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Besides getting off the ship to explore the land, we could also enjoy the view along the coasts of Northern Europe.
The view of Sweden
Departing from Sweden, we waved goodbye and enjoyed the sunset
At the departure party, we also had beer for 500 yen a cup
We arrived in Denmark!
The must-see view in Denmark
The breath-taking view of Norway
Arriving in the northernmost city in the world- Reykjavik, Iceland
Even though the temperature in Iceland is always low, they have geothermal heat, so a lot of plants still grow there
Walking through the huge rift
The local tour guide from Iceland said they only get 70 hours of sun in June. Most of the time they have rainy or cloudy days. However, when we departed, Iceland gave us a great goodbye gift: a sunny day!
