  • In signing the below: You agree to abide by our Terms and Conditions.

    You acknowledge that Secret Compass expeditions are physically demanding. Any past or present medical conditions that may affect your ability to complete the expedition must be declared as well as any current medications. Operating in remote locations can mean that a simply managed medical problem back at home can deteriorate with potentially much greater implications to your health. Likewise, dependance on critical medication is more relevant in an environment away from emergency resupply than it would be back at home. The health and safety of others can also be affected by these aforementioned factors. For these reasons we must have a full declaration.

    Please be assured that a ‘yes’ answer to any of the above does not automatically exclude you from participating. We reserve the right to ask for a doctor's certificate confirming your fitness to attend. Should anything change between now and departure you agree to inform Secret Compass.

    Please complete all fields above - you will receive a 'success' message.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
