Weather and safety

Höfn-Local Guide offers outdoor activity tours in a country with ever changing weather, it actually changes so fast that Icelanders joke about it. They advise their guests who don't like current weather conditions to wait for five minuets and it must likely have changed then!  But our clients safety is not a joke and our number one priority is their, and our guides safety. So please read further on.

All guides from Höfn-Local Guide have experience and knowledge of the tour they manage as well as a certified First Aid licence. Our guides have the authority to change and/or cancel tours for safety reasons. Our guides evaluate the weather forecast and conditions and assess the situation. They base their assessment on their knowledge and experience of the area. Though our tours are moderate it is important that you dress according to weather.

Cancellation policy

A cancelation or change can apply when the weather changes for the worse, if the weather forecast for the day is bad or if we have a natural situation that causes cancellation. In case Höfn-Local Guide needs to cancel their tours due to unfavourable weather conditions or change the tour because of an unforeseen condition, and you are not able to reschedule, you will receive a full refund (note: it might be some transaction cost that will not be refunded).
