For further information, contact Herjólfur's service desk in the Westman Islands at (+354) 481-2800.

When Herjólfur's scheduled journeys to Landeyjahöfn are canceled, passengers with reservations have to bear a few things in mind. Below are the guidelines for such instances.
• During the winter schedule, journeys that are scheduled at 08:30 and 16:00 from the Westman Islands and 12:45 and 19:45 from Landeyjahöfn are transferred automatically to Þorlákshöfn if the ferry sails to Þorlákshöfn and Landeyjahöfn is closed. Other journeys are not transferred, so passengers have to re-book their journeys at Herjólfur's service points. Herjólfur's telephone system is usually quite busy when journeys are canceled, so the email can also be used.
• It is not given that passengers with tickets for canceled journeys are transferred to the next available journey, since a portion of that journey's capacity may already be booked.
• It is possible that when Herjólfur's journeys are canceled that passengers are not able to take their vehicles with them on the next possible journey, for the same reason as above.

New operator of the ferry will take over the ferry operation from March 30th 2019. The following schedule is valid from March 30th - November 30th 2019:
