All our trips fall under the Package Travel Act, which serves primarily to ensure a minimum level of consumer protection for package holidays. When purchasing a package travel from Vulkan Travel, you as a traveler are covered by our required travel guarantee that we as a company has lodged with the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency.

With the current world situation taken into account, there are two possible scenarios when you book a trip with us. Either it is free to travel and you can go on your long-awaited trip, or it is not possible to travel (Iceland is closed or the FCO advises against travel to Iceland). If this should happen, free rebooking to another travel date applies. There is also a possibility to use the amount paid for a future holiday or receive a refund.

Upon booking you pay 20% of the total amount and the remaining 80% is payable a minimum of 30 days prior to departure.

Our trips are covered by the Government travel guarantee. This means that you receive full compensation if any part of your package fails to materialise – for example if an organiser, airline or hotel is declared bankrupt.

These conditions apply to new bookings from October 5, 2020, and onwards. For private and group travel for 10 people or more, special conditions apply.

FREQUENT QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Here are our answers to some of the most frequent questions we get that may be helpful to know when planning your vacation to Iceland 2021.
 

While waiting for standardization of an international digital vaccination certificate, the usual international vaccination certificate (yellow) is primarily used as proof regardless of where you were vaccinated. You can get this certificate at your vaccination clinic or health center.  You also need to be fully vaccinated. The criteria for the certificate are listed below.

Vaccination certificates must fulfill the following criteria

Must be submitted in Icelandic, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English, or French. 

  • First name and last name (comparable to travel documentation).
  • Date of birth.
  • Name of the vaccinated disease (Covid-19).
  • Where and when the vaccinations took place (date(s))
  • Vaccination must be complete; the number of doses required to complete the vaccination for each vaccine must be according to manufacturer recommendations.
  • Information on the issuer of the certificate (Healthcare Professional/Institution), along with a signature in the case of an international vaccination certificate.
  • Name of the vaccine.
  • Manufacturer of vaccine and batch number.

Updated information regarding terms and requirements for other types of certificates can be found at the Directorate of Health.

From July 1, 2021, there is no longer a requirement for arrival testing for passengers vaccinated against COVID-19 or recovered from it.

I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19
If you are fully vaccinated and have a valid vaccination certificate, you can travel to Iceland. To qualify, you must have taken the second vaccination dose at least 14 days before arrival in Iceland. If you travel with children (born in 2005 or later), they do not need to be vaccinated, nor do they need to take a PCR test on arrival, if they are traveling with a parent who has been vaccinated.

I have had Covid-19
If you have a valid certificate that shows you have had Covid-19 and have antibodies, you can travel to Iceland. The certificate must show that you have had Covid-19 and recovered. If you travel with children (born in 2005 or later), they do not need to be vaccinated, nor do they need to take a PCR test on arrival, if they are traveling with a parent who has been vaccinated.

I have not been fully vaccinated or had Covid-19
On arrival in Iceland you must show a negative PCR test done within 72 hours before departure, and undergo double tests with a five-day quarantine in between. If all these test results are negative, you can continue your trip in Iceland. As these restrictions are so strict, we recommend that you wait to travel until you are fully vaccinated. All tests in Iceland are free.
