Day 1

Reykjavik, Iceland

With landscapes like this, Iceland might as well be its own solar system. Make your own way to your accommodation for a date with your Trip Leader and fellow #Topdeckers. Make friends, swap travel legends and grab some drinks. This is going to be epic.

Meals:
-Dinner

Day 2

Reykjavik

Off to the Blue Lagoon today. Sounds like something out of Disney and looks like something from space. Lunar landscape. Natural geothermal pools. The chance to explore and swim. In winter. Outside. Iceland is awesome.

As if life couldn't (or shouldn't) get any better than that, wait 'til tonight. We're off chasing the Northern Lights. Visibility can't be guaranteed but if you nail that shot you won't need to take another photo again. Ever.

Included today:

-Tour of the Blue Lagoon with local guide

-Northern Lights tour

Meals:

-Breakfast

Day 3

Reykjavik

Swap natural wonders for city life with a free day in uber-cool Reykjavik. Check out the views from Hallgrimskirkja then hit up the half-submerged City Hall and grab a coffee with half your body under the waterline. Surreal.

If you're a nature lover, don't miss the Golden Circle for 300km of the very best Icelandic landscapes. Also, the UNESCO Heritage Site Thingvellir National Park hosts the country's first Parliament as well as Geysir (you got that one, right?) and Gullfoss Falls.

Come nightfall, there are foodie haunts abound. Local delicacies like smoke sheep head or rotten shark = a little too much for most. But we're up for a roll from the world's best hot dog stand. Bill Clinton allegedly rates it. For something even more local, head to the other end of the lake for great food and great views. Worth the trip. Be warned, the best nightlife starts late. Like midnight.

Meals:

-Breakfast

Optional activities:

-Golden Circle tour

Farewells today. Don't get too upset. You ticked off a Bucket List killer!
