• By registering for a MBPT / TJP course, the participant certiﬁes that he/she does not have any mental, physical, or other condition or disability that would create a hazard for him/herself or other participants. MBPT / TJP and its designated tour operator reserve the right in their sole discretion to accept, decline to accept, or remove any participant on a MBPT / TJP expedition. MBPT / TJP reserve the right, without penalty, to make changes in the published itinerary whenever, in their judgment, conditions warrant, or if they deem it necessary for the comfort, convenience, or safety of participants.
• MBPT / TJP shall not be liable for any air carrier’s cancellation penalty incurred by the purchase of a non-refundable ticket to or from the participant’s departure city. Baggage and personal effects are at all times the sole responsibility of the participant.
• Basis of rates: All prices and fares are quoted in US $. The rates are based on current tariffs and are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. While we will do everything possible to maintain the listed prices, if it is necessary to levy a surcharge, we reserve the right to do so, and notification will be given at the time of ﬁnal invoicing.
•Included in expedition cost: Accommodation and breakfast as indicated in the itinerary. Pre-departure information; entrance fees, excursions, and tuition noted as included in the itinerary.

• Single/ shared accommodations: A limited number of single rooms may be available at an extra cost (single supplement charge) on a ﬁrst-come, ﬁrst-served basis. In most cases double or twin rooms are available and single occupancy incurs the single supplement charge.
• Payments, cancellations, and refunds: To reserve space on MBPT / TJP destination training courses a 50% non-refundable deposit and ﬁnal payment due on or before the booking deadline prior to course commencement date, or advance payment in full must be made prior to the booking deadline. MBPT / TJP reserve the right to cancel any trip because of inadequate enrolment that makes the trip economically infeasible to operate or because of good-faith concerns with respect to the safety, health, or welfare of the participants. If a course is cancelled by MBPT / TJP after the booking deadline confirmation has been sent and prior to departure, we shall provide you with a full refund of monies paid to MBPT / TJP; except in the event cancellation is due to a signiﬁcant event or Force Majeure that makes it infeasible to operate the expedition as planned such as natural disaster, war or other state of emergency.
If you cancel your participation prior to the booking deadline you will be refunded in full. If you cancel your participation after the booking deadline you will not be refunded unless a replacement participant is found before the start of the course / workshop.
In the event of trip cancellation, we will not be responsible for any refund for non-refundable airline tickets or for any airline tickets purchased by the passenger directly from an airline or travel agent. Please do not book travel to Iceland until we confirm the course / workshop. It is your responsibility to buy travel insurance at this time.
• Trip cancellation and equipment insurance is strongly recommended as is your own personal travel insurance. MBPT / TJP accept no responsibility for this type of cover.
• Itinerary changes: The itineraries and staff presented in this brochure are subject to modiﬁcation and change by MBPT / TJP. Every reasonable effort will be made to operate programmes as planned, but alterations may still occur after ﬁnal itineraries are sent.
