Mary and Frederik were accompanied by Per Thornit and Tanja Doky.

Just before noon they arrived in Reykjavik.



Frederik said: "I've been here four-five times in connection with the Navy. This time Mary is with me and I'm really delighted about that. It's lovely to share the experiences and we look very much forward to start the exiting shedule. To get out in the nature but also to see the historic places which my ancestors, the Danish kings have visited. We have for many years talked about going to Iceland together. Now it has finally come true".
