Also stunningly beautiful, Iceland, offers natural wonders including volcanic craters, glaciers, hot springs and waterfalls. How about a city break in Reykjavik, a jeep adventure or fly-drive tour?
Spain, Portugal and Turkey

If you prefer to travel by train, Spain features some superb state-run luxury trains such as the Transcantábrico and La Robla. And, while many visitors may head for the Costas in the south, Northern Spain is a compelling part of the country with wide, unspoilt sandy beaches, rolling hills, historic medieval towns, vineyards and buzzing cities.
Why not try island hopping in Greece? Travellers can learn to sail or join a flotilla sailing holiday.
