Within 30 days prior to arrival all monies will be forfeited.
No refunds will be given in the event of non-arrival, any unused services or unused nights due to flight / weather disruption.

The official minimum age to ride the quad bikes independently is 15 years. Guides will, however, assess a young person’s ability to handle a quad bike on their own before heading out on an excursion. It is at the manager’s or guide’s discretion as to whether to allow children below 15 years to drive the quad bikes on their own. If the manager or guide feels a person (of any age) is unsuitable to ride a quad bike, it is also at their discretion not to allow a guest to use the quad bikes.
Unforeseen circumstances may result in you having to change your plans or even cancel at the last moment. To protect non-refundable deposits and payments we STRONGLY recommend that all guests obtain comprehensive travel insurance that includes cancellation and emergency medical care cover.
Please be sure to consider such things as pre-existing medical conditions, valuable items and that the policy is right for you.
