Accommodation may be arranged by us or the customer for the duration of a ‘long tour’. Customers can save money by booking their own hotels. If we arrange hotels for a multi-day tour, we are responsible for extra costs if there is a change to the itinerary. However, if the customer requests a more expensive hotel, they will be responsible for the difference in price if the itinerary changes. Hotel fees and other expenses arising from a mutual cancellation shall also be covered by the customer.

Bad Weather

We don’t cancel multi-day tours because of bad weather because it happens all the time in Iceland and most hotels will charge 100% cancellation fees. If the customer requests a location change or route adjustment, they may be responsible for extra accommodation costs.
