At the discretion of Didier Walks to improve the participant experience. GROUP GUIDED HIKE NUMBERS The minimum and maximum numbers of participants are chosen after considering age terrain length and abilities. Guided hikes require minimum numbers to operate and this varies from a hike to hike. (Duke Of Edinburgh Award has minimum peer number requirements) We may elect at our discretion to operate hikes with small numbers. If numbers are deficient we may also select to run the trip with just one guide. All participants will be notified of changes. TERMS OF PARTICIPATION Alcohol/Drugs – Under no circumstances is any alcohol or any non-prescribed drug brought onto the program. Smoking – Smoking is not permitted during the hikes. Flora & Fauna – Didier Walks follows the 7 Leave No Trace Principals. Picking flora is illegal. First Aid – A Guide on the hike will possess current Senior First Aid qualifications and will carry with them a first aid kit and administer first aid when required. All participants are required to have their first-aid kit. Suppose a participant needs to be evacuated from the program for medical reasons. In that case it is the person’s responsibility designated as the “emergency contact” on the participant’s booking information to provide transportation from in the opinion of the Logistics person the most convenient access point. Didier Walks reserves the right to exclude a participant from a program if in the opinion of the Head Guide the health or behaviour of the participant creates too great a risk of deterioration during the program. Swimming – (All hikes that encounter water will be announced at the advertisement and booking). Didier Walks takes great care near water; decisions will be made due to a change of conditions near or in the water. Swimming is never part of a hiking program; any participant who decides to enter water do so at their own risk. HIKE PREPARATION Didier Walks will offer group or individual hike preparation sessions either in person or via Zoom. On occasions Didier Walks will make the participation of a preparation session a condition before the commencement of the hike due to its difficulty level or assessment of the participant. HEALTH AND FITNESS Didier Walks offers a range of hikes that require different levels of fitness and mental stamina. It is at the discretion of Didier Walks that a participant is asked to provide a physical and/or mental medical clearance prior to the hike. This is only requested with the safety of the participant and group in mind. Most hikes even though not far from a town are remote and inaccessible by public vehicles. It is vital that we are informed of any medical condition that may affect the participant’s ability to complete the hike. Consult your GP before your tour if you have any pre-existing medical conditions which may affect you whilst on tour.
