The main point in the day is out to sea and whale watching in Skjalfandi Bay. Later they also visit Husavik and lectures in Akureyri on their arctic research.
The trip ends on Thursday evening in Reykjavik with a dinner.

Estelle was with Victoria and Daniel when they yesterday flew with SAS to first Oslo and then on to Reykjavik. With the plane was also Estelle's nanny Adeline Pettersson. But Estelle sat with her parents the whole trip. Ulrika Näsholm from the press department says that Victoria wants Estelle to be with them when it can be arranged with the program. Estelle will not take part at the official program. On the place were also Victoria's stylist Tina Törnqvist and a bodyguard. The visit to Iceland has been planned for over half a year and it's Victoria and Daniel's first official visit to Iceland as the crown princess couple of Sweden.
- The president of Iceland has officially invited the couple and trade together with environmental issues are the two things that dominate the program, explains Näsholm.
The visit ends in northern Iceland with whale watching and then an official dinner. Victoria, Daniel and Estelle fly home on Friday morning.
However are they're home to midsummer celebrations?
- That they should do. There will be a private celebration, says Näsholm.

Victoria and Daniel started their visit with a meeting with president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson and his wife Dorrit Moussaieff at the Presidential residence.

After having greeted Victoria and Daniel welcomed to Iceland president Grimsson told how happy he is that now three Swedish royal generations have visited Iceland - the king and queen in 2004 were on a state visit to Iceland with Crown Princess Victoria. And now the crown princess along with her husband Daniel and Princess Estelle are there.
Crown Princess Victoria told inside the presidential palace how "incredibly important the relationship is between Sweden and Iceland and that trade with Arctic research are close to her heart."
- I hope that this visit can highlight all the possibilities that exist between our two countries. We look very much forward to this visit, said Victoria.

Victoria, Daniel, president Grimsson and his wife visited conference and concert center Harpa, where they learn about the Icelandic music scene and culture.

Johanna Lejon from Svensk Damtidning tells that when Victoria and Daniel visited Harpa, they got a surprise. A choir sang ”I morgon är det bröllopskalas” (which a children choir sang for Victoria and Daniel at the concert a day before their wedding four years ago). After the song they cheered for Victoria and Daniel. Victoria became noticeably taken.
- Oh what a surprise, she said, and then exclaimed: Very much emotions.

A short video of the visit to Harpa concert hall
http://www.visir.is/section/MEDIA99&...A-A23AB423A87E

Hilmar Snaer Orvarsson said that it was nice to meet a real princess. Victoria had especially asked a visit to Össur because she is interested in Swedish children and adolescents with physical disabilities via her Foundation. Thorvald Ingvarsson from Össur said that it was fun to get the princess to a visit.
Both because of her interest and charitable work with children with disabilities, but also because Össur has significant operations in Sweden. It should be mentioned that Swedes are very advanced in medical technology and strong position in the Swedish market Ossur helps us to keep the company at the forefront, said Thorvald Ingvarsson.

Here is a clip of their second day where they visited Námaskarđ, Gođafoss and met some children in Húsavík.
It should follow that the children found it quite odd that she was just wearing 'normal' clothes and not a dress like the princesses in the fairytales

The clip starts at 09:51

Photos when the choir sang "I morgon är det bröllopskalas", which means a lot to Victoria and Daniel. There was Sweden week in Iceland and Lisa Tillings Projektkör (about 100 singers) from Sweden was in Iceland. At the choir there are people from Östergötland, other parts of Sweden and also from Australia. The choir does charity and in Iceland they supported the Dyslexia Association. Both Victoria and Dorrit Moussaieff have dyslexia and the choir asked them as their patrons for this work. In Iceland the things aren't as good for the people with dyslexia as in Sweden.

Iceland is such a beautiful and magical country.
After Victoria and Daniel arrived from their whale watching, prime minister Sigmundur Davíđ Gunnlaugsson and mayor of Norđurţing municipality Elías Ágústsson were waiting for them and they had lunch.

Twelve years as a couple and yesterday four years married.
What then Daniel gave his crown princess?
- Gift?!? exclaimed Victoria guffawing.
- Relax, it will come, said a confident prince.
They did get to celebrate wedding anniversary with whale watching out on the North Atlantic.
- The memories are there and you go back a little in your thoughts for a day like this, they told.
Daniel experience Gođafoss - a huge waterfall in Iceland, 12 meters high and 30 meters wide, for the first time. Victoria was there in 2004 when she traveled with the king and queen during a state visit.
Daniel and Victoria hugged and joked with each other at the waterfall. Then posed the tightly connected with the mighty waterfall behind.
- What a photo, huh? Daniel laughed.
Iceland's President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson was with and his wife Dorrit Moussaieff was enthusiastic:
- A kiss! A kiss! she shouted to Victoria and Daniel.
They just smiled.
