GENERAL CONDITIONS

About Geographical risk areas. If applicable, the participant states that she/he has been informed by EWES of the political situation in the countries to be visited and of the risks involved in the trip. In addition to this, the participant is informed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides information on specific recommendations according to destination through the Internet (http://www.mae.es) or by any other means.

 

Visas and permits. If necessary, the participant is responsible for complying with the requirements and obtaining a visa to the country of destination, keeping his vaccinations up-to-date and having the necessary medicines and personal use with herself/himself. However, you can ask the EWES team for advice and will be assisted when the participant considers it appropriate.

 

Meteorological conditions. All activities are subject to local weather conditions, the trip program can be modified or canceled last minute by EWES without prior notice, although EWES will always try to prevent and advise as soon as possible, final decision and responsibility being assumed and exercised by the EWES guide at destination, without or with communication with the management of EWES.

 

Physical and technical level of activities. The participant has the obligation to read and understand all the information provided by EWES relevant to the trip previously and to ask in case of doubts, clarifications on the level required in each activity. In addition, the participant has the obligation of informing about their physical and mental conditions, possible illnesses or other physical restrictions that may include the proper conduct of the activity for themselves or one of the other participants or activity guide. It is the responsibility and duty of the EWES guide to assess the participant’s physical and mental conditions and accept or, possibly, deny the participant to participate in the activity before or during the development of the activity. 

 

Equipment. The participant has carefully read the information available and, if necessary, asked the EWES team questions. If, for some reason, the correct equipment is not available, the customer must inform EWES in advance, as a possible solution may be anticipated.

 

General nature of EWES´s activities. All EWES activities are designed by highly experienced and skilled professionals in order to allow the participants to explore their behavior out of their comfort zone, always in a well planned and strictly safe way. However, this does imply friction, tension and physical stress, and the participant’s perception of this might vary from that of the instructors, being experienced as non-comfortable. The participant always has to inform the instructors of his/her feelings and physical situation at a certain moment during the activity and can at any time abandon an activity.

 

Physical and technical level of Wilderness Guide Level 1. All participants would need to be able to walk 15 kilometers per day on uneven mountainous terrain with altitude difference of maximum 750 meters with a backpack of 12 kilos weight.  

Be aware that when sleeping outdoors and having access to less nutrition, your physical and mental shape can be temporarily affected and sensations amplified. For that reason, having proper physical and mental health is key. If you have any questions on the minimum required level please reach out to the EWES team.
