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 stories and grab some drinks. This is going to be epic.

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 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.

Day 3: Reykjavik
Swap natural wonders for city life with a free day in über-cool Reykjavík. Check out the views from Hallgrímskirkja 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 optional Golden Circle tour for 300km of the very best Icelandic landscapes. Also, the UNESCO World 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.

Day 4: Reykjavik
Farewells today. Don't get too upset. You ticked off a Bucket List killer!
