Because I am not a tour operator and almost exclusively do solo tours, I understandably accept no liability in the event that someone wants to accompany me on a tour. Nevertheless, as a precaution and because the world is not only populated by lovely, nice people, I hereby explain my company and ask every possible fellow traveler to sign the following liability waiver and data protection declaration.
1. Tour charakter
This event is an experience and adventure trip, a trip with an expedition character or other event with a sport and adventure character. Such trips and events involve special risks for the participants, their equipment and vehicles. Means of transport include land, water and air vehicles of all kinds, regardless of whether they are motorized, powered by muscle power or using external forces.
2. Health risks
Despite careful and caring care, there can be an increased risk of illness, accident and injury (risk of falling, avalanches, falling rocks, landslides, crevasses, altitude sickness, cold damage, infections, tree felling, hazards due to natural events, bad weather, animals, plants, especially in the outdoor area , and other dangers that cannot be foreseen due to the nature of the trips as adventure trips) are not completely reduced and excluded. It should also be noted that in nature, especially in remote regions (especially without a connection for mobile phones), due to technical or logistical difficulties, rescue and / or medical treatment options are only available to a very limited extent.
3. Individual responsibility
Each participant is expected to show a considerable degree of personal responsibility and prudence, adequate preparation of their own travel arrangements, but also an increased willingness to take risks. It is therefore urgently recommended that the participant deal intensively (e.g. by studying the relevant specialist literature) with the requirements and risks that may be associated with the tour. The participant is responsible for compliance with all legal regulations of the country of travel, in particular the passport, visa, foreign exchange, customs, vaccination, health, traffic and insurance regulations of the country of travel. The participant declares that he / she has taken out adequate insurance cover (both persons and vehicle) for this trip and that his / her physical condition and personal abilities are sufficient to participate in this event. The driver of the vehicle declares that he / she is the owner and keeper of the vehicle, or the keeper and owner has given him / her permission to participate in this event with this vehicle under these conditions of participation.
On hikes and mountain climbs, boat and white water rides, bicycle, cross-country and enduro tours, toboggan, snowmobile and quad excursions, helicopter and plane trips, optional excursions, sporting activities and all kinds of events or activities that involve If there are particular risks involved, participants take part at their own risk. You bear sole civil and criminal responsibility for all damage caused by you and by you or the vehicles you use. The participants, as well as, in the case of vehicles, the vehicle keepers and owners, waive any right of action or recourse against me, my agents, helpers, authorities, agencies and any other persons who are in connection with the organization and implementation of the event, provided the damage or accident is not based on intent or gross negligence. Parents are responsible for supervising their children; i.a. if these are neglected, you will be responsible for your children.
For various unpredictable reasons, there may be deviations from the planned itinerary. My orders must be followed. In this case, there is no entitlement to compensation or a reduction in price. Basically, I have the greatest interest in making my tour as safe and successful as possible.
5. Off-road rides
The trips include components such as trips on and off paved roads, also outside of the regulations of the respective home country of the tour participants and outside of EU regulations: driving through all kinds of terrain obstacles with the participants’ own vehicles or my vehicle, trips on paths that are rarely used and which are not or only rarely repaired, routes without winter service, cross-country journeys away from paths, driving on narrow paths without edge protection, driving on difficult to assess soil conditions, driving on steep slopes and crossing rivers with vehicles, crossing desert areas, Activities when recovering stuck vehicles, removing obstacles on the route such as fallen trees, stones, remains of snow, camp activities, overnight stays in the open air, etc.
