FTLO Travel Alerts

At FTLO, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our travelers, team, and the local communities we visit. For the countries we travel to, we monitor reliable sources of information like the U.S. State Department’s travel alerts to stay up to date on anything that might impact our ability to run trips in a safe way. 

For certain serious events, we will include information below about the situation and how it may affect travelers. We also encourage all travelers to sign up for the U.S State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive updates that allow them to make the most informed decisions about their travel plans.

Iceland’s Volcanic Eruptions

Updated  January 17th, 2024

On January 14th, new volcanic fissures opened up near the town of Grindavik on the southwestern tip of Iceland. While a number of structures have been impacted, the threat to people in the area is minimal.


This region is far from the route explored on our FTLO trip, and at this time, we have made no changes to our itinerary. We will continue to monitor the situation with our team on the ground and update travelers to Iceland by email if we make adjustments in the future.



Updated  January 12th, 2024

On October 19th, the US State Department issued a worldwide travel caution in response to increased tensions in various regions of the world.


At this time, all FTLO trips are operating as normal. We remain in constant contact with our in-country teams around the world, and if there are any changes, we will update any travelers via email.
