Terms of service

We always try to help travellers fulfil their dream vacation. If you need to change the details of your trip you are always welcome to contact us and we will make the necessary arrangements.

Please bear in mind that photo tours in Iceland are in high demand. The earlier you reserve your trip the better availability. Please note that Iceland Photo Tours does not include international flights in photo workshops, nor do we handle such bookings. 

Please find our cancellation policy and terms of service below.

 

Cancellation and Refund Policy


We strongly recommend you to get a Trip Cancellation & Travel Insurance after booking your trip. If you cancel and the Workshop is otherwise filled, we will refund you the full amount you have paid towards the tuition, minus a $300 service charge. If you cancel and the Workshop does not fill, then you will be refunded according to the following schedule, based on the full fee of the Workshop:

Greater than 90 days from the start date of the Workshop: full refund minus $300 service fee.
75 days or more: 75% refund
60 days or more: 50% refund
Less than 60 days: no refund

Refunds will be paid by the same method that the original payment was made. 

Disclaimer

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day
