Yes, I recommend this program

An amazing experience!

We traveled around the country in this program, so I really felt like I had a good understanding of the people and cities in Iceland. I was very comfortable in all the towns we stayed in, but loved being in Reykjavik the most. It's the biggest city in Iceland but still has the feel of a small town. I made some great friends on this program, and loved the country so much I hope to live there at some point in my life.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish there had been some way to meet locals our own age in Reykjavik. I had so much fun with the people on our program, but felt like we were somewhat removed from the rest of the population there.
