The weather in Northern Norway is extremely varied, unpredictable and fascinating. We have no control over it and cannot foresee how it will develop. The workshops are prepared in such a way that we have alternatives to the main programme. In the event of us having to make changes to the programme as a result of causes beyond our control, these alternatives are intended to be equally as good as the original. Arctic Image AS may decide to make small modifications of the content of the program. We will try our very best to follow our original programs, but from time to time it may be necessary to make changes.
Everyone taking part in a workshop is responsible for their own safety. This means that participants must assess what is safe for themselves and what physical limitations they might have. The course management c/o Trym Ivar Bergsmo/Arctic Image AS can in no way be held responsible or liable for any physical or material damage which may occur on the way, during, or on the way home from any workshop/photo tour.
You must be in good physical and mental health. Any physical condition, diet, or treatment requiring special attention must be reported in writing when the reservation is made.
You must advise us in writing, at or prior to booking, of any physical, emotional or mental condition that may require professional attention during the trip or may require the use of special equipment. Please note our tours are not wheelchair friendly and sadly we cannot accept participants with such disabilities.
Arctic Image AS reserves the right to decline any trip participant whose condition, in our opinion, may affect the health, safety or enjoyment of themselves or other participants. Additionally, should a tour participant require or request medical attention during the trip, such attention will be provided by locally available health care officials and at locally available facilities. In such events, we will not be responsible for health service costs incurred nor in the quality of medical care or medical services rendered.
