VALIDITY OF PRICES AND DEPARTURES
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. Tindaborg reserve the right to change your itinerary or cancel your trip with your safety in mind due to factors outside of our control, such as but not limited to weather and conditions, before the tour starts.

Cancellations for all other tours and courses must be made at least 7 days before the tour start time in order to receive a full refund.
We do not offer a refund if the client fails to show up for their tour. This applies even if the weather is bad, in case that we are able to do the trip.
In case of road closures, e.g. due to bad weather, which might prevent you from getting to the meeting point, please contact us and we will work out a solution.
Tindaborg cannot guarantee that you will reach the summit on any of our summit trips. Weather, route conditions, your own abilities, or the abilities of other climbers may create circumstances that make an ascent unsafe, and you or your entire group may have to turnaround without reaching the summit.
Failure to reach the summit due to a person’s own lack of fitness or to any of the events associated with mountaineering (such as weather, route conditions, avalanche hazard, team dynamics, etc.), are not Tindaborg's responsibility and will not result in a refund, credit, or reschedule.
Participants in all Tindaborg tours have a basic insurance. We still advise all our clients to a personal travel insurance.
No responsibility is accepted for losses, expenses due to delays, changes of flights, closed roads or other services or because of strikes, accidents, sickness, damage, negligence, weather, war, changes in bus schedules, or other similar causes. Tindaborg does not assume responsibility for accidents or death that can be traced to the participant´s negligence, acts of third parties or exterior circumstances such as weather, natural occurrences, war or other similar causes.
