Please note that our travels mean that dangers and accidents can occur. You as a customer must be aware that participation is done on your own responsibility.
Our journeys often take place in a weathered area, and the travel logistics are vulnerable to bad weather. We will do what we can to arrange alternative transportation in this case.
