Iceland Trip Reviews

"If you are reading this review because you are trying to decide on an Under30 trip, stop thinking and book it. You will NOT regret it. I recently went to Iceland with Under30, and this was by far the best thing I have ever done for myself. Our friend guides, Jonno and Lauren, not only are people I want to be friends with in real life, but they made our trip what it was... and thats amazing. If you are between 25-35 and want to travel with cool people, not have to worry about planning, and want to make killer memories, GO NOW!!!" -Brandi U.

"I took my first U30X trip to Iceland in early November and it was hands down the best trip of my life. The itinerary is incredible. It's perfectly paced, there's amazing food, the lodging is wonderful and unique....and all of that is not even the best part. Before this trip I had been searching for a community of people who valued adventure and new experiences as much as I did. Spending a week with this group of strangers turned friends was life changing. Every single person was there with an open mind and heart to experience this magical place and everything it has to offer. Some of my favorite moments of the trip were hanging out at night and having our group sing alongs. Shout out to our INCREDIBLE trip leader Jonno and his insane ukulele skills. He had everyone laughing for hours. Thanks to him, our group, and the beauty of Iceland I came back from this trip feeling so incredibly renewed and fulfilled. I have definitely found the community I was looking for in U30X and I'm counting down the days till my next two trips with them, Costa Rica and Peru!" -Tara E.

"Just finished a trip to Iceland with U30X. It was a fabulous experience. Our trip leaders were positive and gave us a wonderful overview of Iceland. We got to ride horses, hike a volcano, walk on a glacier, soak in stunning hot springs, explore the city, and even take a ferry ride to nearby islands. Our accommodations were beautiful and comfortable. The food was yummy. And I made a ton of new friends from across the country. Highly recommend! I want to go another trip soon :)" -Elizabeth B.
