2. Reykjavik, Iceland"We visited the golden circle, glacier lagoons, waterfalls and went snorkelling - everything was spectacular."

Lastminute.com reviewer Rachel shares, “Reykjavik is expensive but friendly and everyone went out of their way to help.

3. Geneva, Switzerland"Riding the cable car to glacier paradise to see the Matterhorn."

Lastminute.com reviewer Katie says, “We stayed in Zermatt and took the cable car and train to get close to the Matterhorn.

My food experience: The cheese fondue is a must in Zermatt. We did it twice and loved both places. It is a heavy meal, but worth it. Activities I did: We zip lined at the family fun park at the end of Zermatt. It was easy to find and had the perfect course for kids.
