Pregnancy and Injuries

If you are pregnant you may not participate in any Ziptrek tour, with the exception of TreeTrek.

All Ziptrek zipline tours require you to comfortably wear a full body harness and walk between 1.5-2km (1-1.25 miles). Guests should be prepared for light physical exertion - all tours include several flights of stairs. Guests should be prepared with their own allergy medications, if required. Persons unsure of their physical ability should consult their physician first.

If you have an injury that we believe will prevent you from participating you will not be allowed on tour. If you are not sure if your injury will prevent you from taking part, please contact us prior to making your reservation or at least 24hrs prior to beginning your tour.

 

Footwear and Clothing

Ziptrek tours operate in a mountain environment.  Guests must wear flat fully enclosed shoes (that means no flip flops, wedges, heels etc). Running shoes, hiking shoes are ideal.  Winter boots are mandatory for tours that depart in the winter. We have a limited number of winter boots available to borrow.

Dress for the weather. It is often 5-10°C colder on our course than it is in the village. We have a limited number of rain jackets available to borrow.

If you are not properly equipped for your tour and we do not have any equipment left to lend you, for your own safety you will not be allowed to participate and you will not receive a refund.
