Changes from the organiser before the activity starts or cancellation of activities
Njord AS can change the terms of the agreement to the participant’s disadvantage only if it is necessary due to external circumstances or changed conditions. The participant may break the agreement if Njord AS does not carry out what Njord AS has undertaken and the breach of agreement is of significant importance to the participant. The participant must within a reasonable time notify Njord AS that he or she wishes to terminate the agreement. If this is not done, the customer loses the opportunity to break the agreement.
If the minimum number of participants for an activity is not met, Njord AS has the right to cancel the activity within a reasonable time. The customer will then be offered to participate in the tour/course on a later occasion or be refunded the amount for the tour booked with Njord AS.
If the planned activity is not possible to carry out due to weather conditions, the customer will be offered an alternative arrangement. Njord will then set up a guided hike to Brekkefossen waterfall as compensation for the cancelled kayak trip.
Persons under the age of 18 must have a signature on a self-declaration from the responsible parent to participate in trips/courses. Persons under the age of 15 must basically be accompanied by a responsible person. On selected trips, this can be deviated from by agreement. A number of trips have specific age limits, these are specified in each trip description and in the self-declaration. It is up to each individual guest to familiarize themselves with the age limits before booking a trip.
Njord AS will not pay costs that are caused by the participants’ poor condition or other personal circumstances. The participation fee will not be discounted in connection with an interrupted activity. Njord AS’ instructors have the right to reject participants if the participant’s lack of condition and/or equipment prevents the group from carrying out the activity according to the set plan. Njord AS’ instructors have the right to change the activity plan due to incidents that are outside Njord AS’ control.
The participant’s responsibility during an activity
I agree that Njord or its guides cannot be held responsible for personal injury, equipment loss or damage when this is caused as a consequence of not following instructions given.
● The participant is obliged to follow the instructions given by the instructor or by another person hired by Njord AS. The participant is obliged to respect the rules of order applying to the activity, transport, course facilities etc. and act in a way that other course participants or external persons are not disturbed or suffer discomfort. If the participant significantly violates this, Njord AS may expel the relevant participant.
● The participant is responsible for and must compensate for the damage he/she causes Njord AS through negligence, for example by not following instructions or regulations. The participant is also responsible for and must compensate for the damage that he/she has caused to Njord AS in the event of an offence or others that Njord AS has hired.
This is included in the price
Each activity on this website specifies what is included in the price regarding equipment, transport, and food. This may vary on different products.
Insurance is not included in the price. The participant is recommended to review his/her accident insurance to make sure that it covers the current activity.
Claims/complaints/right of withdrawal
Remarks or complaints about the activity must be brought forward on the spot immediately and not at the end of the course. This to give the organizer an opportunity to rectify the matter. It is also a prerequisite for Njord AS to be able to process a possible written complaint. A written complaint must be received by Njord AS no later than two months after the end of the activity. Due to this, no response can be expected until after this time. If the parties reach an agreement or a settlement is agreed upon on the spot, no further claims can be made after returning home. For exchanges and the right of withdrawal for purchases from our webshop, we refer to the Right of Withdrawal Act (Norwegian). You have the right to withdraw from the agreement (right of withdrawal) by notifying the company before the expiry of the withdrawal period, cf. § 21.

The right of withdrawal does not apply
If you discover an error or a defect on the item you have received from the webshop, you must contact Njord AS within a reasonable time and complain about this. The same applies if you have received something else than what you ordered. It is nice if you can mark the e-mail with “Complaint” or “Received the wrong item” and your phone number, so we can help you quickly. We also refer to the Consumer Purchases Act (Norwegian).
The parties should try to resolve disputes concerning the interpretation of the agreement through negotiations. If the parties do not agree, the dispute can be tried by Forliksrådet (the Conciliation Board) or by a general court.
