Nevertheless, we will keep an appropriate compensation for already performed services (If the second day is cancelled we will charge a one-day course). Unfavourable weather conditions are not a case of force majeure unless they threaten the personal safety of the participants. Otherwise, our services will be performed in any weather.

8.2 Our employees, guides and seminar conductors are entitled to abort services if the contract partner or a group member disturbs the conduct of the contract despite oral warning or if they act reckless. This may be the case if participants violate the guide’s/seminar conductor’s instructions and/or the rule of conduct. In this case, we are entitled to keep the total price minus possible saved expenditures.
