Conditions and terms for the ISlandfrauen, Helga Ingeborg Hausner

Please read carefully the terms and conditions of the contract.

In requesting for and making a booking, you agree to be bound by these conditions, which constitute the agreement between you and Helga Hausner/Ísafjörður Guide. These conditions apply in addition to any other terms and conditions specifically agreed between me and you.

Booking and payment

The booking reservation is only valid after a deposit of 20% of the total.The down payment is made, you will receive an e-mail booking confirmation and your participation is confirmend. The remaining amount must be paid sex weeks before the workshop/trip begins, otherwise the organizer reserves the right to cancel the participation. The booking can be made verbally, in writing, by telephone, by fax or by electronic means (e-mail, Internet).

By booking a Trip, there is no statutory right of withdrawal.


Although ISlandfrauen strive not to change the tour prices, sometimes price increases are beyond our control (increase in fuel costs, significant exchange rate fluctuations and third party subcontractors). She holds the right to change prices without notice, at any time before and including the departure date. Any price increase must be paid before the booked workshop/trip. My customers need to pay any costs of money transfer itself.

Trip changes and cancellation

Of course me and my partner companies stick to our agreements and comply with the program. Weather changes, unpredictable delays, a drop out of a partner company can make changes in the program necessary. If after receipt of your booking confirmation part of the workshop program has to be cancelled, ISlandfrauen will try to provide a suitable replacement program in consultation with the participants.

Should it be necessary to cancel a workshop due to insufficient number of participants, this has to do at least 4 weeks before the workshop starts. In such a case, we are committed to providing a comparable alternative without additional costs for the participants. Should the alternative proposal not meet the expectations of the participant, the full workshop price will be refunded.

If ISlandfrauen have a special agreement with a participant concerning discounts from our fee in exchange for services like marketing or writing journalisitic pieces about our workshops we also reserve our right for standard compensation in case of cancellation.

If you wish to cancel your booking after it has been confirmed, you must contact ISlandfrauen without delay and confirm the cancellation in writing. As we incur costs from the time we confirm your booking, and may be unable to resell your workshop, the following cancellation charges will be payable. Cancellation charges will be per person and will be calculated as follows:

Up to 6 weeks before the workshop starts: 10% of the price

up to 3 weeks before the workshop starts: 30% of the price

up to one week before the workshop starts: 50% of the price

7-1 days before the workshop starts: 100% of the price

The date of receipt of calculation is the reference date.

The participant has to prove that the damage caused is considerably lower than the amount demanded.

The legal right of the customer to provide a substitute participant remains unaffected by the above conditions. 

Health, fitness and clothing

The ISlandfrauen are not liable for damage caused by inadequate physical or mental state of the participants or due to insufficient clothing.
