Insurance – Compensation for damages
All rates include a third party insurance policy and total cover for emergency and related transport costs including helicopter use.
That said I strongly recommend that you take out insurance to cover you for any unforeseen events. If you choose not to do so you take full responsibility for any medical and health expenses you may incur.
There is risk involved in mountain activities. Even with the full assistance of a qualified Alpine Guide, professionally trained to ensure the maximum possible safety, there are still risks involved in going into the mountains. When you sign up to activities you are recognizing this risk and you therefore give up any claims to compensation for damages or claims to money from your guide or Guide Dolomiti.
