For the past days we have received a lot of questions from travel agencies and tourists on the effects of the volcanic eruption here in Iceland. Contradictory to some reports, the volcanic eruptions in Eyjafjallajokull glacier have had a limited effect on Iceland and its people. The ash from the eruption has spread over the south coast, an area that is mostly inhabited by farmers, about 500 persons. Nobody has been injured and the Icelandic civil protection authorities have the situation under control.
Our airports are open and flights to and from USA have been on schedule. Many of the flights to and from Europe have been cancelled though, as all over North Europe.
The affected area is mostly between the villages Hvolsvollur and Vik on the south coast so unnecessary travels there are not allowed as some bridges and roads have been damaged. But all of our tours are operated according to schedule.
For those of you that have booked tours with us we urge you to keep an eye on the information site from the Icelandic Tourist Board as well as the airlines, see here:
For those who are unable to travel to Iceland we will of course refund all passengers that have to cancel their tours with us. We will also try to refund all tour packages that include a third party service by negotiating with the companies involved.
Travellers that have booked tours and services in the coming months should not have to worry about the situation here. If anyone wishes to cancel their tour our normal cancellation policy is valid.
