When you book a tour online, you will see a Booking confirmation page with Confirmation code, stating tour departure time and date as well as your name and number of participants. You can write down the Confirmation code, and that is all you need to show at check in. But the Booking confirmation page is also sent to you by email so you can print it out if you like.



Prices are in Icelandic Krona (ISK) as shown on our web site. Prices and departures are guaranteed after full payment has been made.



All our trips and outdoor activities are weather and condition depended. South East reserve the right to change your itinerary or cancel your trip with your safety in mind. If we are forced to cancel your trip due to factors outside of our control before it starts you will receive at least 80% refund of fully prepaid trip. If we are forced to change your itinerary at some point during your trip you may or may not be partly refunded for your tour, this depends on what trip you are on and at what stages that trip is. This refund is never more than 50% since in most cases the majority of our operating costs have already been realized after your trip starts.



All cancellations of tours must go through our office by email to info@southeasticeland.is or SMS (Text message) to +354 8466313, South East reserves the right to always keep 20% confirmation fee to cover costs. If clients cancel their tour more than 48 hours prior to departure, 80% refund will be given. If clients cancel their tour within 48 hours of departure no refund will be given. Note. We repay bigger part of the fee if the weather conditions are not allowing the trip, but we don’t repay the fee if the client is late, or doesn’t show up even if the weather is very bad, in case that we can do the trip.
