Terms and Conditions

The terms “Iconic,” “we” and “our” refer to Iconic Adventures LLC, which offers and operates all the trips listed herein. All trips are offered subject to Iconic’s standard terms and conditions, which are found in our trip planners, on our website and by request. Please review the terms and conditions carefully prior to completing your reservation. Some of these terms and conditions are set out below to draw your attention to the fact that our obligations to you are limited.

Prices, Reservations and Payment*

Our prices are shown in USD and final amount and payment will be in USD. Final conversion rate is determined by your bank. We charge a single supplement to individual guests who wish to ensure that they have private rooms throughout a trip. To reserve your trip, we require a deposit of US$500 per person. The balance of your payment is due 60 days prior to departure. If reserving your trip within 60 days of departure, full payment is required. To complete your reservation, you must complete, sign and return a Personal Information Form and an Release Form within 14 days of the receipt of your confirmation package, which will include these forms. These forms include additional terms and conditions of travel, including limitations of our obligations to you.

Cancellation / Switching Trips*

If you must cancel your reservation, your cancellation fee will be determined according to the terms outlined in the chart below. Transfers to another trip or to a holding account for a future trip are only allowed before final payment, after which time our cancellation policy applies. If the trip costs more than your original trip, you must pay the difference. Transfer policy does not apply to Custom Trips. Exceptions to our cancellation policy cannot be made for any reason, including weather, terrorism, civil unrest or personal emergencies. There is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early. Private rooms and staterooms, and internal air charges are considered part of the total trip cost and are subject to cancellation fees. Percentage charges are calculated on total trip cost.

Release of Liability: Guests are required to provide a signed Release of Liability and a completed Personal Information Form prior to trip departure; you will receive these materials shortly after reserving your trip. You may also complete your forms online. We are unable to allow guests to participate in any aspect of a Iconic trip without a signed release form.

Should you cancel your reservation more than 90 days in advance of the departure date, the entire US$500 per person deposit is transferable as a future trip credit to be used by the same guest towards an Iconic trip departing within 24 months of the original trip cancellation date. This credit cannot be extended beyond 24 months but may be transferred to another trip only once. Between 61-90 days prior to your original departure date, you may transfer to a different trip in the same calendar year upon payment of a fee of US$250 per person. If you cancel this subsequent reservation, then the cancellation fees applicable shall be the higher of the cancellation fee on your original reservation or the cancellation fee on the trip to which you transferred. Within 60 days of departure, the regular cancellation fees will apply.

Cancellation Insurance

We strongly recommend you purchase cancellation insurance to protect yourself from unexpected circumstances that may cause you to cancel your trip. We recommend TripAssure cancellation insurance. A summary of the TripAssure cancellation insurance will be included with your confirmation package and can be found here or by request.

Cancellation by Iconic

Iconic reserves the right to cancel any trip at any time for any reason determined in our sole discretion, including if there are too few participants, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of guests is judged by Iconic to be compromised. In such a case, refund of payments received by Iconic shall constitute full and final settlement. In the event of cancellation, Iconic is not responsible for any loss incurred on account of non-refundable or non-transferable air tickets or other unrecoverable travel costs. Iconic retains the sole discretion to run any trip notwithstanding the occurrence of any event or the existence of any condition in or near any place of travel included on a trip itinerary, or in proximity to such a place, or affecting travel, including air travel, in general. If Iconic determines in good faith to run a trip, the then no refund under this paragraph shall be payable with respect to that trip and any traveler cancelling a reservation shall be bound by the cancellation policies identified in the preceding paragraphs.

Preparing for Your Trip

Our trips entail risks—and rewards—beyond those encountered at home. We count on our guests to ensure they are healthy and fit; to read our pre-trip materials about clothing, training and medical requirements; and to appreciate that in some countries local living standards, practices, services and accommodations may differ from those in North America or Europe.
