- The participant is obliged to comply with the rules, instructions and instructions of the Company and the leader of the Activity before and during the Activity. The leader of the Activity has the right to exclude any participant from the Activity with immediate effect, if he or she does not follow these rules, instructions and guidelines, as well as if his or her behavior is indecent or annoying to other participants.

- The personal data of each participant that provided to the Company, including the level of performance and state of health, must be concrete and truthful. In the event that the participant provides false or incorrect information to the company or withholds critical information, in particular about his or her state of health or his or her ability to meet the requirements of the specific Activity, he or she is solely responsible for the consequences.
- The registration for participation in an Activity is to be made – as quickly as possible, for the most efficient organization – via the Company’s website by inserting all the necessary information in the registration form on the website (peak-pack-booking form) or by sending an E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org with the full information requested. Participation is only confirmed, if the participation fee set by the Company or the planned down payment is paid.
- The down payment for the Activity, unless otherwise specified, must be made within three calendar days (3) from the user’s registration in order to reserve the participation.
- Payment of the remaining balance of each tour must be made within 14 calendar days after the confirmation of the reservation for the participation of each tour participant. If the total amount of the tour is not settled up on time, the Company reserves the right to cancel the participation of the respective excursion participant(s) with their prior notice. In this case the down payment will not be refunded.
- Early cancellation of participation in the “Activity” can be made no later than 15 calendar days before the start date of the Activity. In this case, the down payment, settled up as deposit, will not be refunded, whereas the remaining amount of the total cost of participation will be fully refunded. Cancellations have to be formally asserted and always in due time in writing with an e-mail to one of the following e-mail accounts: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.

In this case, the participation can be transferred, to a next or later Activity.
- Rebooking to the next Activity can only be made twice per customer.
- If the fee is remitted to the Company’s bank account, the participant must provide his or her name and the Activity to which the deposit relates. Any commission from the bank will only burden the depositor and in no case the Company.
- The minimum number of participants is five (5) or, as prescribed differently for each separate “Activity”. Therefore, the Activity cannot take place if the minimum number is not reached. In this case, the company will inform the participants by means of an announcement on its website and reimburse the participation fee to those who have paid it without any further obligation for the Company. If, for any reason, the available places are ultimately less than the number of registrations, the order of priority will be strictly adhered to, depending on the registration date, where any amount paid already by those ones who weren’t selected, will be refunded. In any case, the excursionist can be rebooked to the next excursion if he or she wishes so.
- Participants must be present punctually at the departure point of the Activity, which is determined by the organizers, and strictly adhere to the departure times and the duration of the stops determined by the leader of the Activity. It goes without saying that failure to follow the timing exactly may cause unwanted program changes and delays and problems among participants. The inconsistency of any participant gives the leader of the “activity” the right to ignore him, where the inconsistent is not entitled to any refund of the Activity or any other compensation.
- The leader of the Activity has the right to differentiate or even cancel the carrying out of the Activity, if in his judgment the local weather or other conditions do not guarantee the safety of the group or the adequate execution of the activity. In case of diversification of the program of the Activity or delay in its execution due to weather or other extraordinary circumstances, the participant does not receive compensation or refund of part or all of the price of his participation. Any complaint should be reported immediately to the leader of the activity and not later than during the running Activity.
- The time schedule of the Activities mentioned in the program given to the participants by any mean, are estimated and depend on the weather conditions, the needs of the team and any other factor that may affect them.
- The participants understand that their allocation in the hotel rooms, where overnight stay is required, is done randomly and without specific preferences and always in relation to the given availability of the hotel.
- The Company has taken every possible care and taken all possible precautions for the correct and successful organization of each Activity. However, the Company is not liable for events and situations that are beyond its control, and which may lead to the non-execution or improper execution (including delays) of the Activity, such as: Blockades (roads, company premises, etc.), accidents, delays, changes or failures in transport, etc. as well as for culpable actions or omissions by third parties.
