This information is managed by the organizers as confidential and concerns exclusively the safety of the participants in the activities - programs.

EXPEDITION KAYAKING bears absolutely no responsibility for your activities. It has the obligation to provide adequate and safe equipment and its liability is only limited to this.
Notwithstanding the provision of the most complete equipment, activities in nature involve the risk of an accident and participation in them presupposes awareness and acceptance of this risk.
The trips and outdoor activities suggested by EXPEDITION KAYAKING are suitable for most of the audience. Participants need an average level of fitness (unless the program mentions another level of fitness), a teamwork mindset, and the ability to follow the organizers' instructions. However, there is always an element of risk of injury or even death, given the nature of outdoor activities.

All your activities are mandatory with the presence of us, or our partners, to ensure the proper use and protection of the company's equipment as well as for the photography-filming of the participants.
In case our partner becomes aware of incorrect use-protection of the company's equipment, he/she has the right to ask the person(s) who is responsible for the incorrect use-protection of the equipment not to participate in the activity or permanently stop the activity. In this case all participants are obliged to complete the payment without any other requirement.
For any damage-destruction of our equipment due to the customer’s fault, the customer is solely responsible.
