    What a wonderful adventure. The itinerary includes the best of Iceland. We especially loved Thingvellir Park, the geothermal river hike, lunch at Fridheimar greenhouse and the glacier hike. There wasn't anything I would take off the schedule. The... Show more

    Our expectations of Iceland and Mero’s tour were high, perhaps unreasonably high, due to the beautiful images of the tour’s sightseeing and high praise of the tour’s thoroughness. Despite these extremely high expectations, we are extremely satisfied... Show more

    We didn't know what to expect, and couldn't possibly have been happier. Meero is a clearly a careful planner, an engaging guide and all-around great guy to spend a week with. The tour itself was AMAZING and we are considering another Carpe Mundo tour... Show more

FAQs

    • I would really like to snorkel in Silfra. Would that be possible?

      You can include a snorkelling tour in Silfra without a problem you'll spend two nights not too far from Silfra and we can definitely arrange that for you.

    • Does this tour travel to the Blue Lagoon?

      This tour does not visit the Blue Lagoon- the Blue Lagoon is located between the international airport and Reykjavik, and it's very easy to arrange a stop when transferring to the city from the airport (they even have an area to store your luggage). While on our tour, there is an opportunity to visit a place called the Secret Lagoon, which is also a geothermal swimming area. It's not as commercial as the Blue Lagoon, and it doesn't have the same aqua/turquoise water, but it is cheaper and a very cool experience!

    • Can we see the Northern Lights on this tour?

      As far as the Northern Lights goes, we can never guarantee that you'll see them, but March is one of the best times of year to see them, the locations where we stay are in areas free of light pollution, and depending on cloud cover we can drive to other locations at night to see them if needed. So there's a very good chance, provided that the weather cooperates, but we can never guarantee it.
