Additional Information

Accommodations (hut trips): Lodging is in heated dorm-style rooms with bunk beds. Bedding in the huts is not provided, so you must provide a sleeping bag (available for rent). Toilets, running water, and often times hot showers (500 ISK) and the ability to charge electronics (for a fee at select locations) are available at the huts.   

Accommodations (camping trips): This trip is a tent-based trip, with one night in a typical Icelandic mountain hut. We use high quality, lightweight backpacking tents that accommodate 3-4 people (if you would prefer a tent for 1-2 people, this can be arranged for an additional fee). We camp at designated locations along the trail where you will have access to toilets, running water, and often times hot showers (500 ISK) and the ability to charge electronics (for a fee at select locations). When staying in the huts, accommodations are heated dorm-style rooms with bunk beds. 

Payment Terms & Conditions: If you are thinking about signing up for a trip but are not yet ready to commit, we offer a 5 day courtesy hold. To secure your space on a trip, a $500 per person deposit is required and can be paid by check or credit card. The remaining trip balance is due no later than 90 days prior to the start of the trip. If you decide to cancel more than 45 days prior to the start of your trip, you will receive a Carpe Mundo credit that is transferable with no expiration for the amount paid, or we will refund your payment less a $250/person cancellation fee.  If you decide to cancel less than 45 days prior to the start of your trip, no refunds or credits will be available.

Packing List: A packing list will be sent out when you register for the trip. Due to the nature of this trip, it is IMPERATIVE that you follow the packing list, which may require purchasing some items (such as a high quality rain jacket, rain pants, hiking boots, etc).

Release of Liability: We require that everyone participating in a Carpe Mundo trip completes and e-signs an Assumption of Risk/Liability Release waiver as well as a Medical Information Form. You will receive these after you have registered for a trip, and they must be completed prior to your trip.

Insurance: Due to the nature and locations of our trips, we require that everyone participating in a trip has medical insurance that provides coverage while abroad. Proof of insurance will be needed prior to the start of the trip. If you currently do not have insurance, we can assist in providing some recommendations for short-term insurance. Although not required, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance or a travel protection plan for your trip. We adhere to our cancellation policy, and these plans will protect your trip purchase in the event you cancel under certain circumstances. If you are interested in purchasing one of these policies, please contact us for additional information.
