About the hike

For all our hikes when it is not daily scheduled it is possible to have a private guide. When having private guide we can also tailor make an experience adjusted after your time schedule and whishes. The price for a private glacier guide includes all necessary glacier equipment also mountain boots. If snowshoe trips both snowshoes and poles are included. A private guide is a right choice if the start time and length for our daily trips do not fit you if you want a trip only for your family, friends, or company, or you want another trip than we offer as a daily activity. If you are, a group larger than 10-12 persons we have more than one guide, and you can simply book more guides.

What if it is raining?

The glacier hikes are arranged in all kind of weather. Rain normally don't stop us. The weather is a part of the glacier experience. Good clothing is important to make sure you don't get cold. The colors in the ice can be even more fantastic in rain, but of course if we can choose we prefer the sunny days. Strong wind make it harder to arrange the tour, so if wind is strong and direction not ideal we may have to cancel the tour for safety reason. Then you will get refund if you are not able to switch date.

Which hike is best for families?

The Blue Ice Hike in Juklavass glacier and Panorama Glacier Hike can be adjusted for everyone from 7 years old. But, our experience is that the children need to be motivated their self to enjoy it. So do not book hike if your children don't want this at all. On all tours we adopt the level of hike after the participants, we can regulated the length and the challenge for the hike. When having Privat guide we can tailor made hike 100% for your family, so this is of course the best option. For families with children younger than 7 years old this is the only options. We do not allow children younger that 7 years old to participate on the "daily hikes".

Can I use my own mountain boots?

We have over 150 pair of mountain boots in sizes from 33-48 (EUR) which are designed for glacier hiking/climbing. This means the sole are stiff and they have good support around the ankle. Good boots are important for the safety, so we do not charge any extra for the boots, it's included in the price to borrow boots. Of course we understand if you prefer to use your own boots if you have, and as long as they are good enough you are welcome to that. Bring them, and the guide will check them and give you the best advice. Note: The crampon/spike we install under the boots can scratch the surface of the boots.

What is the cancellation policy?

We try to be as flexible as we can. For the daily hikes "Blue Ice Hike" and "Panorama Glacier Hike" you can cancel until 24 hours before the hike and get 100% refund or change the tour date. Cancellation or no show later than 24 hours before hike does not give a right to a any refund. For all  other hikes/tours we offer, the cancellation deadline of 5 days before the tour date applies unless otherwise agreed. That means, if you can cancel 5 days before the hike you will get a full refund. If you cancel later than this but before 24 hours before the hike, there is a 50% refund, if canceled less than 24 hours before the trip, there is no refund. If Folgefonni Breførarlag has to cancel the trip due to weather / conditions, you will get 100% refund.
