Accommodations: All of the accommodations we use are highly rated and very comfortable with private bathrooms. Properties are chosen based on their location, great customer feedback, and for the authentic Icelandic experience they help to provide. On this trip, the first night we stay at a highly rated seaside country hotel on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with beautiful ocean views. The following two nights we stay at a charming farmhouse/guesthouse close to the Golden Circle. This is a real working farm with comfortable guest accommodations and a delicious fresh breakfast. The last night of the trip is at a stunning hotel set off in the countryside located near the famous Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
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 suggested packing list as well as additional information on travel to Iceland can be found in our Customer Information packets. Here are links to the packets for our summer tours and for our spring and fall Northern Lights tours.
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 highly recommend everyone participating in a trip has medical insurance that provides coverage while abroad. 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.
