Section 5 – Be prepared for all weather conditions
We focus on putting a smile on all of our customer’s faces during and at the end of each excursion. Even though that is our aim, experience has taught us that people might end up slightly disappointed with their excursion when they have not been advised regarding appropriate clothing.
On hikes we advise you to be well prepared for everything. Bring hiking boots & warm clothing, for example a warm jacket and even rain gear if necessary.
Also on coach excursions we advise you to be prepared for everything. It might be warm and sunny when departing from the meeting point, but the weather in Norway can change rapidly. Especially when traveling up the mountains, where it can get windy and cold. Bring light appropriate shoe wear and warm clothing and even rain gear if necessary.
In case of doubt, please feel free to contact our booking office for further information.
Section 6 – We care about our environment
We kindly ask you to respect our beautiful planet. Please throw all garbage in trash cans or trash bags located on our supplier’s coaches. All coaches are equipped with trash bags on the side of each row, so kindly help us by using those bags for all trash while traveling on our excursions. Please do not hesitate to talk to/inform our guide or the driver if anything is out of place regarding this issue.
Section 7 – Liabilities before/during/after excursions
At all-time we reserve the right to change or adapt, if necessary, tour descriptions, departure times or the general routes. These changes can be necessary due to factors that cannot be controlled by us or our suppliers. We are not liable to any kind of factors that are suitable under the term “Force Majeure”. Factors that cannot be controlled by us are for example avalanches, accidents, injuries, strikes etc. We do not accept any liability to any kind of financial damages that may occur to you due to these factors with possible late arrivals as a result.

Any damage to clothing (such as shoe wear, jacket and etc.) or personal belongings (such as camera, smartphones and etc.) during the excursion is on your own responsibility. Claims will not be accepted by us.
If any belongings are lost/missing after an excursion, we recommend you to let us know as soon as possible by calling us at (+47)92272247 / (+45)65744255 or by sending us a request online.
