    Best trip I've ever had! Not only was the scenery spectacular, the trip experience itself was made all the more pleasurable because of our guides. It was well organised, Carpe Mundo went out of their way to assist - when the airlines lost my backpack and gear, they suggested where I could buy clothes at a reasonable price, offered use of their own gear or where I could rent it, and the guides were extremely supportive. They were also supportive on the hike, helping and encouraging others who were struggling. The tents and gear used were good quality and the meals (even the trail snacks) were fantastic. We also saw a few spectacular sights off the beaten track, which most hikers probably miss if they didn't know about them. It was so great, I want to do it again!

    If you like hiking, you will absolutely love this trip! It was the best hike I've ever done and some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. Mero and Simon were amazing! Highly recommend going with Carpe Mundo! If you are thinking about doing it, do it!

    Everything about this tour was excellent! The scenery on this trek will change every hour and will blow you away each time. The tour guide, Mero, is extremely kind and organized and takes care of you every step of the way (you will probably eat better than you did before the trek). I can't recommend this tour enough. If you decide to go (which you should), make sure you follow the packing list and practice hiking with a pack beforehand!

    The Iceland Hiking was a phenomenal trip! It was challenging but the trip leaders were so helpful throughout. I made lasting friendships and pushed my body to complete the trek which I feel very proud of! The value of this trip is excellent. Most of the other treks charge more and this pricing made this trip possible for me. I had a wonderful time, no complaints. I would do this trip again and am already looking into other trips by this company! Highly recommend.

    Incredible trip! I’ve been to Iceland several times before, but doing this hiking trip is by far my favorite way to see the country. The views are unreal, and the leaders make the hike much more enjoyable (and safer) than if I had gone on my own. The food we ate while hiking was actually better than the food I usually eat at home. We saw what some of the other guided tours were eating on their trips, made me so happy I wasn’t with them! (They had chicken soup and rice for breakfast… We had delicious breakfast burritos that morning!) Carpe Mundo also helped arrange a self drive trip for me and my friends to see more of Iceland after the hike- the recommendations on places to stay and activities to do were great. I can’t wait to travel with Carpe Mundo again!

      What is the usual hiking pace on this trip? Can we enjoy the scenery as to take as many photos as possible while hiking?

      As far as the hiking goes, it goes at a mostly leisurely pace, hiking around 3-5 hours per day on average, depending on the length and the group. A 10 mile day is one of the longer days, and it usually takes 5-6 hours when you include the stops. You do take breaks for snacks, water, lunch, pictures/scenery, etc. The trip is designed to really enjoy the scenery and all of the beauty.

      Is there a place on this trip were a river has to be crossed and there is no bridge?

      There are 2-3 river crossings without a bridge. Usually the water is only about knee deep, although it can be a bit more or less depending on recent weather conditions. The leaders will instruct on the proper way to cross and can provide trekking poles for additional support if needed. So far this tour has never had anyone fall or drop anything while crossing.
