For all cancellations please refer to the above policies. Weather is unpredictable and is a constant factor in all the decisions we make before and during programs - particularly multi-day programs. There can be objectives that are still achievable, but all decisions and objectives are subject to the sole discretion of your guide (see Registration Policy #5 above). In these cases, Freeheelin Adventures does not provide any refunds. With Private Guided Trips subject to unpredictable and/or adverse weather please be prepared to commit to alternative objectives with your guide. This may require packing additional equipment in order to remain flexible for different objectives, and to accommodate an unpredictable forecast. Additionally, it is prudent to schedule buffer days on either side of your scheduled date in order to remain flexible around poor weather. Our guides are very busy and usually do not have much flexibility but, sometimes a scheduled date can be moved a day or two in order to take advantage of a better weather window (no guarantees made). INSURANCE Insurance providers offer insurance coverage to protect you against unforeseen events. We highly recommend you purchase insurance to protect yourself. The two basic types of insurance that most travellers need to consider are Medical and Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance. With the cost of a guided trip, flights, car rentals, and accommodation it is a very good idea to purchase Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance. In the event of illness or an accident during a trip, medical insurance is a necessity to cover the costs of hospital bills, ambulance, and air transportation. Purchase medical insurance that covers climbing, mountaineering, hiking activities, and pays for air ambulance transportation from remote locations.
