Ice, Ice, Baby? Alaskan & Icelandic Adventures with Hurtigruten
If you're looking for an Arctic-esque adventure then choosing between Iceland & Alaska is no easy feat. Whilst Alaska has more forested wilderness, big mountains and more types of wildlife it's also HUGE and sparcely populated. Iceland, on the other hand, is much smaller, and has more approachable weather, so exploring all of it's natural phenomena is easier.
