Destination: Iceland by Morning

2 Sep

International Bellhop Travel Magazine

Drifting south from the Arctic North, glaciers, icebergs, and free-flowing ice carved out a beautiful island nation over millions of years. The result: Iceland.

Though Iceland has been a maritime camp for transatlantic voyages for nearly 500 years, it has always been a midway-point, rather than a destination. Only recently has Iceland emerged as a destination to be seen by discerning travelers. From the capital city of Reykjavik to the glaciers and geysers of the island’s most geologically-active lands, we are showing you the sights and locations that make Iceland the modern-age’s most sought after vacation stop.

While there are many non-stop flights into the capital city of Reykjavik, disembarking into Iceland by ship offers a much more beautiful — and fitting — entry into the nation of ice. Cruise ships use  the various southern ports as a stop-off in between The Americas and the European ports of Southampton, Liverpool…

Weekends in Bern, Switzerland

International Bellhop Travel Magazine

Destination: a quaint little town in The Alps that is a getaway for some, and a way of life for others. Bern, Switzerland, is a capital of unmatched beauty. Viewing the architecture — alone — could serve as an entire trip. But, there are many more attractions to pull you to this unique destination. The clear blue waters of the River Aare, crystal clear runoff from the glaciers that cap the nearby Alps.

Swiss WaterfallsThe city center is made up of the peninsula formed by the winding of the River Aare, creating Venetian-styled waterways that gracefully lap against the stilted homes and buildings at the river’s edge. Across the river from the city center, hills slope up into cliffs, with a vast expanse of towering buildings clinging to the rocky outcroppings. One could almost say that there is no other place like it in the world, if it weren’t for the…

Destination: The Norwegian Fjords

What is a fjord? You ask? A fjord is basically a steep, cliff-ed, valley that has been cut out of rock by glacial movement. Over thousands of years, the slipping-downhill of millions of tons of polar ice have scraped away the rock into clean — yet jagged and steep — impressions into the granite and other volcanic rock features in the Scandinavian Plateau.

Many of these fjords, which are basically just waterways that cut into the eroded cliffs just south of the arctic, are now waterways that cut deep into the interior of Norway, Latvia, Finland, and other countries within the arctic region. These hidden bays, and coves, and capes have been explored and enjoyed for hundreds of years. The Dutch shipping

industry first rose to prominence because of their marine and navigational skills — which were developed by adventuring in these same waters.

Today, the waters are…

Swiss Alps Switzerland Visual Tour

Though The European Alps range runs through several European countries, the most beautiful and hidden gems of the mountain range are the Swiss Alps specifically. Also known as the Central Alps, the Swiss alps have some of the most amazing rock formations, glaciers, and rushing waters in the the entire range. Snow-capped at the highest peaks, the midlands are bright green and lush with trees and grass, as the snow-melt and runoff from the glaciers sustains many miles of growth.
