Insurance and indemnities
Snowmobiles are insured as required by The Finnish Traffic Insurance Act. This insurance covers medical care for injuries to the driver and the passenger arising from accidents. Personal injuries and damages to other parties are fully covered according to The Finnish Traffic Insurance Act. Snowmobile safari participants are held liable for damages caused to snowmobiles rented to them. The self-liability amount is maximum 980 Euros per snowmobile and per accident case. The producer is not liable for any loss, injury, damage whether direct, indirect or consequential, arising from incidents or accidents during transfers, meals, accommodation, games and other activities, dog excursions, reindeer excursions or other excursions and events except to the extent that such loss, injury or damage is caused by intention or by gross negligence.
Personal travel insurance is therefore highly recommended. In order to maintain convenient medical and health care in local hospitals the E111 formula is recommended. The Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless producer, its officers and employees from and against liability for any indirect loss and costs arising from any negligent act or omission or from any breach of the Contract. All transfers are under the liability of the supplying transportation company.
Other terms and conditions
The driver of a snowmobile has to be at least 18 years of age and in possession of a valid driving licence. Children under 13 years ride as passengers in a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile. Driving a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol and/or intoxicants is prohibited by Finnish law. Top Safaris and its suppliers reserve the right to change the routing and duration of all excursions if necessary according to the prevailing weather and snow conditions or if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and the comfort of the participants. Saariselkä Booking and its suppliers also reserve the right to discontinue a safari if a participant is seen as a potential danger to himself/herself or to others or is in poor health.
