  • I am pregnant, can I still join the glacier tour?

    We don’t recommend that our guests join a glacier tour if they are pregnant because in all our tours we drive off the main road on bumpy roads. We gladly refund the tour if they have booked in advance before finding out the news. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions or concerns.

  • What kind of clothes should we wear on our glacier trip?

    The weather in Iceland can change really fast, so it´s really hard to say. We recommend you wear 3 layers. Jeans are not recommended for our trips as they become very heavy, cold and uncomfortable to wear when wet. It´s really good to take sunglasses and sunscreen even if it is cloudy due to the high UV and sunlight reflection off of the glacier.
    We can rent out hiking boots as well as a waterproof raincoat and over trousers for all of our trips.

  • Do I get my money back if it is raining or the weather is bad?

    We do not give refunds if it´s raining. We can rent you a waterproof jackets and waterproof over trousers. However if we feel that at any point that conditions are not save for travel we will cancel or reschedule the trip and if we cancel we will refund you the trip.

  • Can you lend me warm clothing and suitable footwear?

    We can rent out hiking boots (not in all sizes) as well as a waterproof raincoat and over trousers for all of our trips.

  • Are there any age restrictions and are the tours suitable for children?

    We recommend that your child can walk itself for 2 hours and is not younger than 8 years.

  • Can I bring with me any luggage?

    As there is not much room for luggage in our jeeps we ask that you only bring with you hand luggage of manageable size, like cameras.
