Taking into consideration the spread of COVID-19, we at Hidden Iceland are doing everything we can to minimize the risk of infection on our tours, following the guidelines of our health authorities, so that you can enjoy your adventure with an ease of mind.
We have reviewed our tour operations with safety of our guests and employees. Below is what we are doing, and require you to do, to maintain yours and our guides safety:
Limiting physical contact is an easy and effective way to minimise the risk of infection. Although there are no restrictions in place it is still best to err on the side of caution when possible.
We have placed sanitising stations by the entrance of the vehicle and we please ask that you sanitise your hands when entering and leaving the vehicle as well as practicing hand washing when possible throughout the day
All Hidden Iceland guides are fully vaccinated.
All shared contact surfaces in the vehicle are cleaned with disinfectant after each tour (as always).
In addition to the points above, Hidden Iceland is a part of an initiative by the Icelandic Tourist Board which is based on a foreign model called Clean & Safe. It is important to adapt to this new reality and that the tourism operators welcome customers in a safe and responsible way. Read more about the project here.
What can you do?
Use of masks is no longer mandatory but is considered a good idea when indoors or in close proximity to other travellers when social distancing requirements cannot be followed.
Avoid unnecessary physical contact when possible.
If you need to sneeze or cough, try to do it into your elbow or in a napkin.
Use of hand sanitisers whenever available.
Follow common guidelines for sanitation and measures to reduce spread of COVID-19 (WHO, CDC, UK NHS).
