We like to bring new experiences to our guests and many women told us they would love to visit Iceland . We found an Icelandic woman who has set up her own company Viking Women and we believe we have the perfect partnership to bring you a holiday.
We will add more detail nearer the time but rest assured you will see the best that Iceland has to offer and on this trip you will have the chance to try things for the first time.
