Set out on a full-day excursion of the beautiful Scottish town of St. Andrews, the delightful seaside “home of golf.” St Andrews Links, much like the game of golf itself, has evolved for more than 600 years. Today, more than 230,000 rounds are played over seven public courses. St Andrews Links Trust also manages a number of additional facilities including a golf academy, three clubhouses and four shops. St. Andrews is also the site of Scotland’s first university, which boasts notable alumni such as Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. During your optional tour, you’ll admire the charming, cobbled streets and green cathedral grounds before returning to Edinburgh.

This optional excursion will introduce you to one of the Iceland’s top attractions: the Blue Lagoon. This manmade geothermal spa is located in a lava field near Grindvik where super-heated water is fed into the lagoon from nearby Svartsengi. The water’s high silica content creates soft white mud on the bottom of the lake, giving the spa its famous milky-blue shade. This is one of Iceland’s most visited attractions, and bathing in this otherworldly environment is considered a rejuvenating ritual.
The northern area of Zealand island in Denmark is home to a variety of magnificent castles and sprawling palaces.
