A great daytrip with a good mix of activities and sites to visit.
This is a great tour to do if you only have limited time yet want to see a bit of everything – from the Hill of Crosses to the canopy tree walk, and culture and history visiting the horse, ethnography and train museums. Our guide Inge was fantastic and imparted a lot of knowledge during the daytrip.
