      To help you get started, I've listed my top picks for where to go in Scandinavia, and my plan for your best three-week trip, whether by car or train and boat. Depending on the length of your trip, and taking geographical proximity into account, here are my recommended priorities. Across mountain climbers’ top lists, the ascent of the highest peak in Iceland is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. A great day of weather will allow you to look out over some of the most breathtaking views in the world. Kirkjufell is probably one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland. If you do end up heading north from Reykjavik.

Flower names are given in English, French, German, Italian and Latin, with notes on curious facts and origins of names.
