Important - Insurance requirements and recommendations

During our courses we follow the standard recommendations and guidelines of the following professional associations: CIC – Commission Internationale de Canyon and the SOA – Swiss Outdoor Association, which leave almost no chance for accidents. 

The participants during course are fully responsible for their own actions or inactions and the consequences of these during the course and they are required to have an accident insurance that covers canyoning accidents. Since we usually work in a group during a course it is also recommended to have a liability insurance that covers harms and damages caused to others by negligence. 

Ticino Outdoor provides a full liability insurance cover for those incidents that could have been caused by the action or inaction of the instructor.
