Iceland is known for its stunning volcanoes, lava fields, waterfalls, and the aurora borealis. Relax with your lover on a private lagoon retreat and then explore the radical side: the crystal ice caves and the volcanoes. The best part is at this time of the year the city has a lower number of visitors, so you can avoid the crowds.


London can easily give Paris a run for its money as the City of Love! Take a romantic walk around the beautiful St. Katharine Docks.
