Other Information

Dossier Disclaimer

The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary.

VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

Itinerary Disclaimer

While it is our intention to adhere to the route described below, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to our style of travel and the regions we visit, travel can be unpredictable. The Trip Details document is a general guide to the tour and region and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. Aboard expedition trips visits to research stations depend on final permission.

Additionally, any travel times listed are approximations only and subject to vary due to local circumstances.

Important Notes

Please note: While it is our intention of adhere to the route described above, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable, to make alterations. On the first day of your tour, your Expedition Leader will give you an expedition overview.

The G Expedition is an adventure expedition ship and does not offer an elevator.

ACTIVITY LEVEL
The activity level for this trip as a whole is graded "Light", as the itinerary includes light walking and hiking suitable for most fitness levels. Please be advised that there are two activities included on this tour that are graded as “Moderate”. Travellers are able to opt out of any excursion that they are not comfortable participating in. The two activities of higher activity grading are the following:

1. Glacier Walk: The first 20 – 30 minutes of this activity is a moderate to strenuous walk; the grade is slightly steep but the footing is easy. If you are unable to manage this walk, there will be a trolley car available to take you most of the way to the glacier hike.

2. Svartisen Land Excursion: The first 30 – 45 minutes of the hike is easy on a flat surface. The remaining hike is guided in small groups as it can be a challenging maze of rocky outcroppings leading to a close encounter with the ice.

BOOTS FOR ZODIAC LANDINGS
- Complementary waterproof boots for use on board will be supplied in the following sizes:
- USA size 4 - 16
- EURO size 35 - 49
Please be advised that there are limited numbers of the smallest and largest sizes.

If you wish to bring your own boots, you should follow the guidelines below:
Rubber, waterproof boots that are just below your knees (12-16” high or 30-41cm) with a strong, ridged non-skid sole are essential for wet landings via the Zodiacs. You usually have to step from the Zodiac into the water, which can be up to 1 ft or 30 cm high on most landings. Do not bring heavy, cumbersome boots that make it difficult to walk. Do not bring boots with metal cleats as they cannot be used for the landings. Try out your boots before your voyage.

The electricity onboard is 220AC electrical outlets, with European 2 pin round holes, as well as 110-volt shaving sockets in the bathroom for electric razors only. You may wish to bring an international adapter. A limited supply of electrical adapters are available to borrow free of charge at the Purser's Desk.

KAYAKING EXCURSIONS
For the more adventurous, our kayaking trips provide the opportunity to encounter the intimacy and power of the polar regions in ways very few people can lay claim to having experienced. For more details about this extra optional activity, including prep notes and full terms and conditions, please visit our Polar Excursions page.

Please note: Arctic Kayaking Excursions must be confirmed prior to your departure. You may include this extra to your itinerary at the time of booking. If you wish to add this extra after you have confirmed your trip, please contact your travel agent.
