Booking Policies & Liability Waiver

Attention: by reserving an Alaska Photo Treks photography workshop, tour, class, private or group instruction, or private or group guided tour, you are agreeing to the following booking policies and liability waiver. Please read carefully before completing your booking.

SUNSET PHOTO SAFARI, TWILIGHT PHOTO TOUR, ANCHORAGE AURORA QUEST, CLASSES, PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

Changes or cancellations may be made up to 48 hours in advance [Anchorage Aurora Quest allows cancellations up to 4 hours before departure without penalty]. Cancellations initiated by the customer [after payment has been submitted] will incur a 10% processing fee. Sunset Photo Safari and Twilight Photo Tour are all weather tours – no refunds will be given due to weather conditions. Great photos can be made in all conditions, and some subjects are even best to photograph under clouds, wind or rain. Be sure to dress for the conditions and bring protection for your gear.

WORKSHOPS & TOURS [CUSTOM, PRIVATE, GROUP, GUIDED]*

Please read the booking policy for each tour or workshop carefully, as there may be variations to this general policy. Full payment is required at time of booking. A cancellation refund [minus 10% processing fees] is available prior to 90 days of tour departure. Refunds for cancellations after the 90 days are not guaranteed. For this reason, we strongly recommend trip insurance. If we can fill the space with another booking, payment will be refunded [minus 10% processing fee and whatever fees are required by additional trip vendors]. In most cases, your payment can be applied as credit. *If air travel is a component in your workshop or tour, read the following information.

ALASKA BROWN BEAR PHOTO & GLACIER PHOTO TOUR BY HELICOPTER [AND ALL TOURS INVOLVING AIR TRAVEL]

Full payment is required at time of booking. There is a 40% refund for cancellations made up to two weeks prior to tour departure. Cancellations made within two weeks of tour departure will not be refunded. If for any reason the flight company is not able to fly on the booked date, payment will be refunded [minus 3% processing fees]. For payments submitted by check, refund will be made in full. 

ALASKA WEATHER & CONTINGENCIES

Alaska’s weather is unpredictable and can change dramatically quite quickly. Please read the details of your trip carefully. It is your responsibly to pack appropriate clothing and footwear for any conditioned mentioned. Many of our trips rely on aircraft to transport to the location. It’s possible the weather may not be flyable on the day that’s been listed, or the flight times may change due to weather. In those cases, we will do our best to complete the itinerary to the best of our ability. We are not responsible or liable for any cancellations, expenses or delays incurred as a result of conditions over which we have no control.
