    A Swim test is needed for collective structures with minors.


In the case of group registration, the guide will tailor the trip to all members of the group according to the conditions on the day.


Each booking will be confirmed by an email from us. If you then validate the proposed organization, we trust on your integrity and moral conscience to be there on the day of the activity.

We will not ask you for a deposit (this is a choice assumed from Exploriders team).

However, if you do not honor your reservation, you will have the opportunity to compensate us based on the cancellation clauses described below.


The feasibility to carry out any activity is subject to the guide’s assessment of the weather conditions on the day and the physical ability of each of the participants.

THE EXPLORIDERS© reserves the right to modify the activity program for safety reasons, floods, physical ability, or any other circumstance outside the organiser’s control.  If any of these circumstances arise, alternative routes will be organized without participants being eligible to claim compensation.

If THE EXPLORIDERS© finds that for whatever reason an activity must be cancelled, the participants will be refunded in full without eligibility to claim further compensation.


  • For any cancellation by the participant(s), the deposit will not be refunded.
  • For any cancellation more than 30 days before the date of the activity, the usual practice is not to claim a penalty.
  • For any cancellation between the 30th and 15th day before the date of the activity, the practice is to withhold a flat-rate penalty 30% of the total price of the activity.
  • For any cancellation between the 14th and the 2nd day before the date of the activity, the practice is to retain 50% of the total price of the activity.
  • For any cancellation on the day or the day before the activity, the practice is to retain 100% of the price of the activity.
  • As we don't take any deposit, these penalties are a choice that you can honor according to your ethics and moral conscience. It’s up to you to put yourself in our place and do the action that seems right to you.
    If you wish to pay the penalties, we will send you our Bank Identity Statement to proceed with the compensation.

    With regards to groups, if the number of participants is less than expected, THE EXPLORIDERS© must be informed at least 5 days before the date of the activity, otherwise all reserved places must be paid for.
