Unique Tours trips and tours are primarily for those who are “active”, and risky or dangerous situations may therefore occur, either in connection with or as a consequence of a trip. Unexpected situations may occur on hiking tours; boats may capsize, snowmobiles can tip over, etc.
In each situation, Unique Tours will endeavor to exercise as much caution as possible and take all relevant safety measures. However, we emphasize that participation in our trips is the participant’s sole responsibility, and he/she thereby accepts the inherent risks. Unique Tours is not liable for any loss, damage, cost, or expense as a consequence of participation in our trips. The participant is requested to carefully evaluate the situation and back out if he/she feels unsafe.
Any complaints are to be stated during the outing so the unsatisfactory conditions/circumstances can be tried to be solved at once. They are also going to be directed to the staff of Unique Tours immediately after the ending of the tour/trip.
