  • 100% of tour price, if cancelled formally within 2 days prior to departure. 

Change fee:  if one requests changes to pre-made packages (i.e. self-guided packages), such as adding nights into theprogram, changing hotels or dates a change fee of EUR 100- will be charged. Please note that there is no fee for booking additional nights in Reykjavík before or after tour/package. 

Last minute change fee:  if a confirmed service is changed less than two weeks prior to arrival of the client, change fee of EUR 100- will be charged. 

Last minute booking fee: a last minute booking fee of EUR 100- will apply to all bookings requested within two weeks of client´s arrival. This fee will apply to bookings for self-guided packages and countryside accommodation. This however does not guarantee confirmation and will therefore only be charged for confirmed bookings.

After the invoice has been issued the price is guaranteed against any surcharge, unless an increase is due to government laws or currency changes.
