As the sun only sets for 3 hours per day from mid-may to mid-august this period offers almost 24 hours of daylight. In midwinter, there are around 5 hours of effective daylight.
During winter months we are working with very limited daylight hours. This may result in some of the sites being visited in dusk or darkness or skipped altogether. We will do our best to avoid this, but ask for your understanding should this happen.
Dress according to the weather, the weather can change very rapidly depending on if it’s winter or summer. You should always wear good shoes or boots for your maximum comfort. Wearing three layers of lightweight upper body clothing is the most effective method for retaining warmth. The weather is so unpredictable in Iceland. it’s always good to bring more than you use just in case.
A passport or other travel document accepted by Icelandic authorities must be valid for at least three months beyond the intended stay for visitors to Iceland.
In Iceland nearly all bills that you receive already include gratuity. You will still get a smile and Icelanders will not think any worse of you if you tip. Of course, Icelanders will not decline a tip for good service. If you feel you have received excellent service, the best way to show your appreciation is to tip 10 percent or round up the amount of the bill.
Please note that some tours/days can be changed or rearranged depending on the weather conditions, so we need to be flexible. We are concerned about your safety and overall experience. In case of activity being canceled or tour/day changed your guide will let you know in time and give you alternative options and make the best out of the situation.
