Safety rules

Safety is priority in Adventure Valley. Adventure Valley is not an amusement park but an adventure park. We offer safe adventurous activities but we also require participants to consider their own safety.

Please read the safety rules below:

Each participant agrees to follow the instructor's and/or driver's instructions and to hand over the equipment that is made available in the same condition. Any damage and loss of equipment will be invoiced to the participant.

Each participant is aware of the risk involved in the activity and accepts this. Under no circumstances may damages and other costs be claimed during or after the end of the activity, unless Adventure Valley is in default.

Each participant must be in good physical condition, not suffering from osteoporosis or heart problems, can not use materials that can affect his or her behavior (alcohol, drugs, drugs, ...) and be in good mental condition. We advise against participation in all our sports activities for pregnant women.

Each participant agrees to respect the domain, the nature and the tranquility of the residents. He / she does not throw any waste into the nature, the river or on the shores.

The tenant is, through the reservation / registration, responsible for the entire company and the equipment made available throughout the duration of the activity. He or she acknowledges having read the rules of procedure and submitting them to each participant in the company. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.

An individual accident insurance is available. The current premium is around € 5 / day / person. If you wish to subscribe, you will need to fill in a list with the full name, full address and date of birth of each participant. This list must be in our possession at the latest 5 days before the activity.

Adventure Valley gives itself the right to modify the order and the time of the activities. The times are indicative and the possible waiting times or delays do not give the right to claim damages or to cancel the reservation, for any reason.
