Terms and conditions

Iceland Highlights – Terms and Conditions of Day Tours


Payments for tours are collected while booking.

Cancellations or change of reservations by customers

Tours operated by Iceland Highlights which have been prepaid online have a 10 % cancellation fee (that means a 90 % refund) when cancelled more than 24 hours prior to departure. When a cancellation is received less than 24 hours prior to the departure the full price of the tour will be charged and no refund will be made. (This cancellation policy may also apply when a tour has been booked through a third party.) Partner tours have different cancellation policies. Please see details in the tour descriptions.

No Show

When a passenger is not present at the submitted pickup place at the beginning of the pickup time, the driver-guide is obliged to continue the pickup of other passengers and is allowed to start the tour without the missing passenger (in order to not delay the tour for the rest of the passengers). This is considered a “No Show” and no refund will be provided.

Right to alter or cancel tours

Iceland Highlights reserves all rights to delay, alter or cancel tours due to weather or any unsafe conditions for safety reasons.
There is a minimum number of passengers set for standard Day Tours, this number is stated in the tours’ description. Iceland Highlights has the right not to operate a tour when the minimum number of passengers has not been reached.


Refunds of Day-tours cancelled before departure by Iceland Highlights. When a tour has been prepaid online, a full refund will be issued unless the customer wishes to re-book for an alternative date.
Refunds of delayed, altered or shortened tours after the departure
When a tour is delayed due to weather, any unsafe travel conditions or unforeseen circumstances, no refunds are provided if the tour still operates. When the tour is altered or shortened after the departure due to weather, any unsafe travel conditions or unforeseen circumstances a partial refund is provided. The percentage of the refund is calculated according to how much of the initial itinerary has been completed.
