Iceland and what other Northern country?

We are planning a two-week vacation this summer and would like to go to Iceland for one of those weeks. Would like to go to a Scandinavian country or Finland for the other week. We love culture, animals, walking, food, and beautiful views (mountains good but countryside great. Any recommendations? Thanks!

We spent 24 days in Iceland, which wasn't quite enough.

I recommend spending the full 2 weeks in Iceland.

The best connections are probably with Denmark.

Concerning how long one would need for Iceland, 75 years would be a good beginning.

I've only been to one other Scandinavian country, but I highly recommend Norway! You can get really cheap flights direct to Bergen flying out of Newburgh in upstate NY, which is what we did.

I would pick Iceland and Norway for the summer. In the winter I would pick Iceland and (Swedish or Finnish) Lapland.

Finland for couple of days then get on the overnight ferry to St. Petersburg, Russia (visa free visit for 72 hours).

Greenland. Iceland is one of the few places from which you get a direct flight there. The views are out of this world.
