In the Declaration of Risk Acceptance, Walk Patagonia informs all clients about the RISKS taken on any MOUNTAIN ACTIVITY, and the client declares to be aware of the risks.
The declaration is not a disclaimer, as we understand that this responsibility is what justifies and supports the contracting of our services.
I express complete comprehension in the activities programmed and the objective risks that implicate my participation in the trek or expedition that I am reserving.
I declare that I have no known physical or psychological limitations which would hinder me taking part in physical activity, like walking for 8 to 10 hours on steep mountain terrain, with our without footpaths, through mud, over fallen trees and near wild or domestic animals. In some cases we will wade through streams. We will also be exposed to a variety of climatic changes; rain, snow, wind, lightning, high solar radiation, storms, less quantity of oxygen or atmospheric pressure, etc.
I declare that I possess no special medical requirement beyond what is already described in the Personal Medical Form and Declaration of Health.
In the case of technical activities, for example trekking and ascents on glaciers, I declare that I understand the risk to which we expose ourselves is increased, as the itinerary normally involves climbing vertical passes on rock, snow or ice, be exposed to crevasses in the glaciers, avalanches and falling rocks in the mountains or on rock faces. I also accept that the mountain terrain conditions are unpredictable, and the guide may make the decision to modify the original itinerary, in order to secure the safety of the individual or group.
I understand that mountain activities (excursions and/or expeditions) take place in very remote areas, a long way away from large conurbations, where medical services, rescue and other types of help can take various hours or even days, because of the difficulty of access and/or communication, to arrive.
I assume total responsibility on in taking out a Life, Personal Accident and Medical Cover Policy prior to my trip.
I also declare to understand and voluntarily accept the General Conditions and Cancellation Policy of Walk Patagonia.
