What happens to my booking if the weather or conditions are bad?

In case it is not possible to operate the tour due to weather or conditions, we try the following things:

Move the tour to a different date if that works for you, and change to a different activity if you agree. If none of the above is possible and we have to cancel the tour due to weather or poor conditions, we will refund you the tour.

What is the best season for rock climbing in Iceland?

Rock climbing is a summer activity available from May to October. This activity is highly weather-dependent and not possible when the rock is wet or when it is raining. If you are interested in rock climbing outside of the season, it is possible if we have really good weather days. Please contact us for further information.

Do I need any prior experience to participate in your rock climbing tour?

No prior experience is needed for single-pitch rock climbing. For multi-pitch climbing, it is advisable that your climbing level is at 5.7-5.8, and you have to know how to belay a lead climber.

Do you offer a pickup service?

In general, we only meet our guests on location or carpool from a central location in Reykjvaík. However, if you do not have your car and can not meet us on location please get in touch.
