Terms and Conditions

General Conditions

Please observe that the Lava Tunnel is a natural phenomenon and although we have strived to make the environment as safe as possible we do not want to cause damage to nature. The environment you will encounter during our tours may therefore be unsafe unless all necessary caution is used. You must therefore show care and caution, and at all times take full note of your surroundings. You must not remove any of the safety equipment we may provide and you must observe and fully comply with any instructions given by our personnel.

The Lava Tunnel disclaims responsibility or liability for damage to belongings, physical injury, accidents, sickness or other type of loss you may incur before, during or after our tours.

Unfortunately, we do not control the weather so the Lava Tunnel also disclaims responsibility for any loss or inconvenience resulting from changes in tour schedule, such as routes and timetables due to weather or other irregularity outside the Lava Tunnel’s control.

The Lava Tunnel operates under and is subject to Icelandic law. Any claim or action against The Lava Tunnel is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Icelandic Courts.
