The weather and conditions
All adventure trips and outdoor activities are weather and condition dependent and we reserve the right to change your itinerary or cancel your trip with your safety in mind. Please keep in mind that Iceland is and will always be Iceland, the weather changes fast on our northern island and with it conditions change. Our guides are specially trained to deal with changing conditions and their number one priority is to make decisions with your safety in mind. Please respect your guides authority to do so. This is especially valid for winter travel in Iceland. Our summer trips (excluding high alpine trips), operated from June through August, are very rarely adversely affected by harsh weather.
As with any and all world travel, we strongly recommend that you buy a travel insurance policy in your home country that covers your cost should you have to cancel on short notice.This kind of travel insurance is not expensive and frequently covers other risks.In general, travel insurances are a good idea to have when you are on the move in the world

In such cases full cancellation charges apply
Appropriate footwear and suitable outdoor clothing must be worn. We reserves the rights to refuse participation to customers who dressed inappropriately with inappropriate footwear since this will put the clients well being at risk
