CHANGE OF BOOKING
If the customer wishes to change the ordered program and day trips less than 14 days before arrival, the customer will have to pay a change fee of NOK 400 per change.
Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to change departure times, minimum numbers or cancel trips up to 4 weeks before departure (day trips until the start of the trip) if there are too few participants in relation to the stated number in brochures or on the website. Likewise, we reserve the right to cancel tours right up until the start of the tour due to force majeure or other events beyond the company's control that prevent the tour from being carried out.
In such cases Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to cancel with no compensation in excess of the amount that the customer has already paid the operator. We also reserve the right to change the program along the way, if the organizer/tour leader deems it necessary for safety or technical reasons (weather conditions, scooter breakdowns, delays, etc.). In the Arctic, it is the weather that decides, and the extreme conditions that prevail can in some cases lead to the program having to be changed (also due to ongoing rescue operations) and thus does not give the right to a reduction in price. No refund in case of forgotten driver's license or delayed/cancelled flight.
The customer himself is responsible for assessing his own physical and mental condition in relation to the tour's content. The customer must at all times follow the instructions given by the event manager, and it is not permitted in any case to bring private weapons or pyrotechnic equipment on our tours.
Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS reserves the right to refuse people participation in our activities if they are considered a risk to safety or behave in such a way that it is embarrassing for the guide or other participants on the trip. Persons under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be refused admittance.
Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions AS tries as far as is reasonable to carry out the trip as described. The guest's safety will always be the first priority.
