General travel conditions

The guide reserves the right to make changes to any program/itinerary for any safety reasons.
The guide accepts no liability / responsibility for:


The guide expects the client to be aware of the related risks in mountaineering, such as avalanches, stone fall, crevasses, altitude sickness, hypothermia etc.

Though the work of a guide is to minimise these risks they can never be reduced to zero.

Also it is important that the client is aware of the fact that rescue and/or medical help is always limited in mountain terrain and that, therefore, minor casualties can have serious/major consequences. The client is expected to be responsible in his/her behaviour on the mountain and in the physical preparation prior to the trip.
