Traveling is my absolute most favorite thing in the entire world. I discovered my love for travel back in 2014 when I traveled outside of the United States for the first time to China with Travel for Teens. After having an amazing experience there, I have since attended five other trips with the program, one of them being Iceland, most recently, in summer 2017. In late 2016, I was struggling to decide which country to visit with the program, and I ended up landing on Iceland without much prior knowledge of the country. I knew basic geographic facts, but other than that, not much else. When I arrived to the country in July 2017, after a mere one to two days, I knew this island was special. From the spectacular waterfalls cascading down in every direction from some of the most eye-catching mountains I've ever witnessed to incredible sights such as the inside of an active volcanic lava tube, this trip was magnificent - in every sense of the word. Prior to visiting Iceland, I would have never even begun to assume this island had so much to offer, but thanks to Travel for Teens, I was able to change my viewpoint quite drastically. The activities offered are some of the most amazing I have ever participated in, such as hiking into a canyon to see a secret waterfall, snorkeling in the most pristine water on Earth in between two tectonic plates in a massive crack in the earth, and engaging in a unique dining experience known as "Viking Sushi", where you have a chance to eat everything from clams to scallops to sea urchin directly from the sea in the freshest form possible. As expected, the Blue Lagoon was wonderful, and as a side note, we were lucky enough to see an entire rainbow inside the crater of a volcano. If that isn't amazing luck, I don't know what is! Would I recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a destination not nearly as often traveled to as mainland Europe? Yes. It is a one-of-a-kind destination, and Travel for Teens captures the island in all of its best aspects.
